T.L.C. is dedicated to nurturing your child and treating him or her with respect and dignity.Were here to help your child become an independent, self-confident, inquisitive learner. Your child will be encouraged to develop to their fullest potential socially, emotionally, physically and academically.
Since 1981, T.L.C has been providing exceptional early childhood education within a welcoming and richly diverse community. We believe in providing communities with the best resources in childcare and education. Executive Director, Patricia Forkan, opened T.L.C after not being able to find quality childcare for her own children. Striving to create the best educational facility for her own family, T.L.C has grown into two state-of-the-art facilities in both Blue Island, IL and Crest Hill, IL to serve families looking for the same educational experience for their own children. Children, parents, and teachers are mutually respected and trusted. Our professional and dedicated teachers encourage each child to be confident of his or her abilities and sensitive to the needs of others. We provide a well-balanced and developmentally appropriate curriculum which encourages social growth. We value open communication with parents which helps reinforce what is learned at home and in school. Since opening, T.L.C has reached highest honor of becoming NAEYC-accredited school which only 8% of all childcare centers have accomplished. We also participate in the Quality Counts Quality Rating System. We provide transportation to and from all area elementary schools as well as serve three snacks, breakfast, and lunch.

TLC Learning Center is a co-educational, day school located in Blue Island and Crest Hill, Illinois enrolling children from as young as 6 weeks old to 12 years old. Our primary goal is to provide a solid beginning for our young students that will instill intellectual curiousity, compassionate engagement, and active participation in the world. We believe that a community that is cultually, ethnically, and economically diverse allows children to broaden their understanding of themselves and the world around them in an atmosphere of inclusion and respect. TLC provides nurturing, child-centered settings for children committed to building and fostering a community of life-long learners.

We are educators guided by the philosophy and the standards set forth by the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) and The Creative Curriculum developed by Teaching Strategies
