For the past 32 years we have given Tender Loving Care (TLC). We first opened our doors in September 1980. We started with two classrooms and three employees. Now, we have four classrooms including kindergarten and ten employees. Linda Buchler, the original owner, still remains along with Dot Stocks, the director. Dot has been at TLC for the past 27 years. Dot’s son came to TLC when has was 3 years old. One year later Dot started working at TLC as an aide, attended Camden County College for early childhood and became a teacher. She later gave up teaching to be the director. Dot has been the director for 15 years.
TLC prides itself for providing a loving environment while providing a quality education for each child. Our curriculum includes math, social studies, science, art, gym and language arts. We provide structured programs during our nursery school ad private kindergarten hours. TLC also gives individual help to any child that needs extra one on one help. During our afternoon daycare hours we have free play, puzzles, blocks, coloring, outside play, music and more.
We provide monthly calendars and newsletters to let parents know about what is taking place each month. Some of our activities include special visitors, parties, and trips. Throughout the school year, we have family activities, which include family night at the park, Applebee’s PJ breakfast, Chuck E Cheese night, mom’s night out and more! You can drop in our school anytime for a tour!
This year, we have decided to change our math program in our pre-k and kindergarten classes. The new math program is called Everyday Math, which is the same program used in surrounding school districts.
Sue and Linda Buchler Linda Buchler will run both math classes. Buchler is also the head teacher at TLC Nursery School, she taught pre-K for fifteen years and she is now teaching pre-K again this year. Buchler has a degree in special education and early childhood education.
TLC Nursery School and Daycare Center is located on 356 Greentree Road, Sewell.
