We pride ourselves on a sparkling, clean, sanitized environment, where your child's health is our number one priority.
We have put strict protocols into place to keep our children, families, and staff safe. Our protocols are based upon the CDC guidelines, the Office of Early Childhood recommendations and TLCC's own strict safety and cleaning practices. Sanitizing takes place mid day as teachers tidy their rooms and wipe down all toys and surfaces. At the end of the day we have a cleaning team who sanitizes and readies our classrooms for the next day's activities.
Why is Twin Lake Children's Center the right choice for you and your little one?
The center-wide, Kindergarten-ready curriculum developed by TLCC is proven to get children ready for Kindergarten!
Our preschool program is based on the CT Preschool Assessment Framework, developmentally appropriate practices, and the five areas of development. Our unique curriculum prepares your child for Kindergarten, instills a life long love of learning, and engages your child to learn in a stimulating environment. Our curriculum is developed with intention and purpose in order for your child to have the optimum learning experience. Our program takes advantage of those teachable moments that spontaneously arise as your child learns something new.
Our Tadpoles app helps keep you connected with your child during the day.
Communication is key for our families. TLCC offers a wonderful app through Tadpoles which allows you to communicate easily and effectively with your child's teachers. You can expect pictures, updates, notes from your child's teachers and more. Just as important, you will find communicating with the owner and director just as easy. We know the importance of family and TLCC working together to give your child the best experience possible. We are so excited to be your child's first teacher!
You can expect a smaller more personal center that offers the same high-quality program as a larger center.
TLCC is a smaller, more personal center where every day is an adventure and an opportunity to learn. Our focus is to provide balance of socialization and academics to the children in our care. We provide a wide range of age-appropriate learning opportunities for children from 6 weeks to 6 years of age (kindergarten ready) to develop and grow intellectually, socially, and emotionally, while also learning the physical skills necessary for day-to-day life. We have been preparing children for kindergarten for over 25 years!
“Twin Lake Children's Center was my boys first experience with being away from me and in the care of others. My oldest was a toddler when he entered the program there and we could not have been happier with his experience. The staff was so caring and loving and I believe they were a huge part of developing his love for learning which 15 years later he still has and uses as he carefully considers his college choices. TLCC took a child who was attached to his mother (first child with a stay at home mom) and helped him to develop and come out of his shell. He loved everything about it there from the staff to the friends he made to all that he learned. When it came time to send my second son to preschool TLCC was an obvious choice. However, he was very different from my first as he was social, goofy and could easily be swayed to get into a little trouble;). Again, we found a perfect fit for him at TLCC with teachers who took his personality and ran with it in the best way possible. He quickly adjusted to knowing how to settle down and be a learner but then also was able to let loose when that side of him needed to peek out. 12 years later, he is still that same child. And I know that TLCC helped him to create that perfect balance so that he could excel at school but also enjoy life with his friends and family being his goofy self. When he was 4 we moved to a different town and had the opportunity to put him in another preschool but there was no way we wanted to leave the amazing community we grew to love at TLCC. So we chose to have him stay for his second year knowing that it was the best place for him as they prepared him for entering elementary school. All these years later I am still friendly with some of the staff and the owner and I am so proud of all that she has done there over the years. On the typical scale of 1-5 I would give them a 5+++. TLCC is an amazing center with an incredible staff who I know will help nurture your child in every aspect of their lives. They take the whole child for who they are and help them to develop the tools need as they go through life.”
