absolutely worst daycare I have EVER put my child in! Completely unprofessional staff, the owner and speech therapist talk to people like they are below them. oh and heaven forbid your child be "different" then dont bother here they could care less. I would rather quit my job and stay home with my kids than put them back there!!!

Do not go to this daycare! This facility is poorly ran and directed by a bitter and spiteful old woman. My son was treated unkindly, and he began throwing up at daycare due to fear. They immediately labeled him as autistic and opening explained to me he would never be able to function in real life. A week after I was casually told he was label autistic, without any notification, we were kicked out. They discriminated against my son, did not testing or measures to come to their conclusions, and kicked us out of the building when I started asking questions. Horrible experience!!!!! We turned them into DCFS!

We had two heart breaking experiences with day care before my son began TLC. He was 16 months when he started and he's 30 months now. We coudln't love it more!!! He did take a break for a month to attend a Christian day care. He screamed everday at drop off and I had to peel him off of me before I could leave, in tears myself. His first day back at TLC, he gave me a hug and kiss then said, "Bye, mommy," as he walked into the classroom on his own. I was amazed!

I appreciate that TCL is a community and a team. The staff are friendly, knowledgeable, understanding, and open. Even the cooks will greet my son by name as they pass him in the hallway. I've heard that other parents aren't thrilled with the set up of the classrooms. It is one huge room with the age groups blocked off my bookshelves and large toys. Four classes share two restrooms, two sinks, a few tables, and an open area near the entrance. I love the set up and appreciate that my son knows all of the teachers and all of the children in classes to his right and left. It makes for a smooth transition between classes in the morning and afternoon when there are only a few children. However, his class size is always 5-7 with only one teacher. This allows him to form more personal relationships with friends and allows me to receive daily information about his his appetite, mood, sleep, pottying, etc. Unfortunately, this isn't typically possible at other day cares which may have as many as five teachers in and out of the room in one day.

The TLC staff also have knowledge about child development and developmentally appropriate practices. The parent handbook said 30% of their enrolled children receive some type of services, whether it's physical, speech or otherwise. I've noticed the TLC staff individualizing their strategies to meet children's needs. I've seen a child throw a fit and hit and bang their head on the floor. The teacher calmly took the child to a soft area, let them cry it out, then held them and spoke softly about what the child wanted. It was wonderful to see! The teacher validated the child's anger, placed them in a safe area, and helped to calm the child and seized the teaching moment.

I consider myself a part of the TLC family. I've seen my son, who was delayed in his physical and language development, make huge gains. His teachers and directors were always open to talk to me about his needs, progress, and develoopment. My son was experimenting with some pushing and aggression when he began potty training. The teacher told me that he received a few time outs, after she, he, and the other child involved had a talk about how we can't push and why. She communicated with me daily about his behavior and steps she was taking. It's obvious that they care for my son and respect me as his primary teacher.

I couldn't sing their praises enough! Thank you TLC for taking such good care of my baby!!!!

I have been an employee at TLC for a little over a year now. It is a wonderful center and a great place to work. Everyone is so friendly and helpful. We are always looking for ways to improve and new ideas to incorporate into the childcare. The staff works so closely with families to make sure each individual child's needs are met. The small classroom sizes really make a great learning environment. I love it at TLC!!!
