TLC Full Day Kindergarten

TLC has an excellent full day Kindergarten program with a great reputation.  Our licensed teachers provide a learning environment that is fun and challenging.  A small class size enables us to differentiate instruction to meet the varied needs of our students  as they prepare for first grade.  Our classroom is registered with the Department of Education and our curriculum is aligned with Pennridge School District and PA State standards for Early Learning.   We use the Everyday Math program and a balanced literacy approach.  The structure of our full day program allows for a more relaxed, less hurried school day with more varied experiences.  We have daily “specials” which include Lil’ Sports, music class, Spanish instruction, computer lab and reading buddies.  The children also have time in their day for play time with peers in learning centers and outside!
