Learning Center Preschool is a ministry and an educational program of Tuckston United Methodist Church, which supports and upholds our mission to serve the children and parents of the church and surrounding community. Our Preschool Council meets quarterly to govern us.
Tuckston Learning Center welcomes all children and families without discrimination of race, faith, or nationality. Our program offers a stimulating curriculum in a loving and caring Christian environment. The curriculum is based on developmentally appropriate learning experiences.
We believe in the nurturing and encouragement of the whole child; cognitive, social, emotional, physical, and spiritual. We strive to provide a Christian atmosphere, which promotes respect for others and fosters a love for learning.
The curriculum at TLC is organized around units of study. Each unit is designed to help your child develop in every aspect of their lives. We plan a variety of activities with an emphasis on reading, music, art, and discovery.
Because TLC is a ministry of this local church, spiritual training of the children is an important facet of our program. Therefore, we have prayer every day, bible stories each week and Chapel at least once a month.
Our staff is CPR and infant/child First Aid certified, and we practice precautionary security procedures within our building. Our teachers uphold professional standards by attending workshops and monthly staff meetings. We strive to keep low student-teacher ratios by providing two teachers in each classroom.
All children should be up to date on immunizations, and TLC must be provided with Immunization Form 3231. All PreK students must be potty trained. Classes are determined by what age the child is as of Sept. 1st.
The 5th day of the week is called Fun Friday and is available for ages 2 and up. It is a day that allows more time for creative expression. It is enjoyed as an escape from the more structured routine that the previous days offer. Children will have the opportunity to enjoy more art, baking, play acting, and organized games.
Lunch Bunch will be offered Monday through Thursday from 12:00pm until 1:00pm. It is available for all children ages 2-5. The cost is $5 a day, and children will need to bring their own lunch. There is a $5 late fee for children not picked up by 1:00. TLC classes will have some evening performances, fundraising opportunities, as well as Family Fun Night .
