Philosophy of TLC Preschool of Sebastian, Inc.

TLC Preschool of Sebastian, Inc. believes in caring for the whole child! Children are accepted regardless of sex, creed, race, religion or disability. This allows children the opportunity to develop their physical, social, emotional, cognitive, language and creative skills.

TLC's philosophy states that all children will pass, at their own pace, through the same stages of development. We believe the child is a unique person who needs love, security, guidance, acceptance and encouragement on his/her journey toward independence.

We utilize the Beyond Centers and Circle Time/Beyond Cribs and Rattles framework as a most effective early childhood curriculum. The Beyond Centers and Circle Time/ Beyond Cribs and Rattles is based on the principal that children construct their understanding of the world around them from their own active interactions with people, materials and ideas. The curriculum encourages both the teacher and the child to initiate learning experiences; therefore, daily activities are not just created by the teacher but, also, from the child's interests and ideas! Teachers extend, encourage and support the child's natural learning. The curriculum's “child interest” process helps children develop the ability to make decisions, become problem solvers and work together. It is the responsibility of each staff member to provide exploration and educational experiences that foster creativity, curiosity, and responsibility in the children they work with.

We also believe that families need a place where a supportive network is available. TLC Preschool of Sebastian, Inc. is dedicated to the well being of the family and takes a great interest in providing, seeking or referring our families to various services throughout the community. This is the place where families grow!
