Toddler Loving Care Nursery School (TLC) opened the doors to its Victorian style house in Newton, MA on May 1st, 1994 with the aim and focus of creating a home away from home environment for Toddler, Preschool and Pre-Kindergarten aged children using a mixed-age grouping philosophy. We are proud of the success we have earned over the past 25 years in providing quality care and education to many children and families in the Newton area. We have many goals as educators at TLC Nursery School. We feel that it is important to get to know each child as an individual and to support young children as they grow and develop at their own pace.

For many Toddlers and young Preschoolers, coming to TLC is their first formal experience in a school setting. Our goal in the Toddler/Preschooler classroom is to ensure that each child gets the individual attention he/she needs to feel comfortable and secure in their learning environment. We aim to make meaningful connections with each child as they begin their journey at TLC in our small size classrooms (maximum of 7 Toddlers). We focus on establishing a predictable and positive routine for the children with the goal of having them form an early understanding of the classroom schedule and routine.

A mixed group classroom is beneficial for ALL children involved. This environment works particularly well in our program at TLC because of the small class sizes. Children are able to receive more one-on-one guidance and assistance when they need it. They feel secure to try new experiences because they know they will have the support they need. Research as well as, our professional experience show that mixed-age grouping can benefit all children involved. This is especially true for children who spend the majority of their time in an extended-day setting.
