Program Information


childcare-child20TLK Academy is a full day private school that currently offers Kindergarten, First, Second, and Third Grade. As the school grows, we will be adding additional grades in the years to come. TLK Academy is affiliated with Tender Loving Kare Child Care & Learning Center and is located within our Peoples Plaza Location. The program provides opportunities for children to learn new concepts through an integrative and challenging curriculum that is structured to meet a variety of learning styles.

The small class sizes offer more teacher student interaction and focus on individual needs of each student. The early years of your child’s educational experience are the most critical in building future success. Schedule a tour today to see how we can provide a wonderful learning environment for your child.


childcare-child19The infant/toddler program provides a loving, nurturing environment in which children can develop at their own pace. We offer opportunities for each child to explore their environment and learn through play. Singing, finger play, story time, and art are all part of daily activities for this age group.


The preschool program is a full day program that provides a curriculum that is balanced in work and play which allows for an introduction of a variety of subjects that includes group experiences, creative activities, listening and sharing stories, rest, language skills, writing skills, problem solving, independence, indoor and outdoor play, and health and safety education.


childcare-child7The before and after programs offer services for a number of the local schools in our area. Transportation is provided to the schools by the school district and our own transportation service. Please call to find out if we service your child’s school. This program is a structured environment where students are able to work on home work, socialize, and have continued learning experiences while in a safe caring environment. This program also provides services for when children are off of school due to in service days or other school holidays.


childcare-child21This program is a continuation of our before and after school program. During the summer break we provide a program for children finishing Kindergarten through Eighth Grade. The children are in separate groups, based on their grade level. All groups participate in outside field trips and in house activities which enhance learning experiences while having fun.

The camp curriculum encourages cooperative learning through interesting project based activities. Swimming, Ashland Nature Center, Roller Skating, Air Force Museum, Blue Rocks, Grand Opera House and Field Day are just a few of the trips and activities your child could be participating in this summer!
