Staff Child Care

Temple Learning Center (TLC) 

Temple Learning Center is designed to meet the needs of healthy children 6 weeks through four years old. Enrollment is open primarily to employees of TISD staff; provided the child meets the age requirements. Enrollment shall be granted without discrimination in regard to sex, race, creed, or political belief.


Our Hours….. 7:00 a.m.-5:30 p.m. Monday-Friday 192 days per year.


Our Tuition…….


TISD sets a daily rate for each age group. This rate is reviewed yearly. Careful consideration is taken to set daily tuition rates comparable to other high quality licensed centers in our community. Although TLC is a non-profit center designed to offer our TISD staff affordable daily rates, daily rates will be set high enough to never compromise the quality of the program.


Current Daily Rates are : 


$30.00 Children ages 6 weeks-24 months


$26.00 Children 25-36 months


$24.00 Children 3 & 4 years of age


Monthly tuition is calculated as follows:

Daily rate x your contract days divided by 10, 11, or 12 equal payments. Parents must sign an agreement for auto payment during the registration process.


 Our Curriculum…..

At TLC we utilize “The Creative Curriculum for Preschool, Teaching Strategies Gold and “The Creative Curriculum for Infants, Toddlers, and Twos,” Teaching Strategies Gold.


This curriculum features exploration and discovery as a way of learning, enabling children to develop confidence, creativity, and critical thinking skills.


The Creative Curriculum for Preschool is based on 38 objectives for development and learning. These objectives are fully aligned with the Early Learning Framework and state early learning standards, and integrated into each and every one of the comprehensive collection of resources that makes up the curriculum. Parents can be confident that children are meeting important early learning standards every day. What’s more, the curriculum also offers daily opportunities to individualize instruction by helping teachers meet the needs of every learner, with a particular focus on English language development.
