TLCP is a proud and active participant in the Colorado Preschool Program (CPP).

To meet the objectives below, we have built a classroom that is developmentally appropriate so that each individual child can grow physically, socially, emotionally and cognitively. We try to offer a safe, stimulating environment with materials and activities that are appropriate for the child's age and abilities so they can explore, grow and learn.  

Educational Objectives

To ensure a safe, emotionally supportive environment
To foster a positive self-concept
To develop social skills
To encourage language and literacy skills
To enhance physical development
To encourage self-help and independence skills
To encourage children to think, reason and experiment
To encourage creative expression and art expression
To support and develop partnerships with families
Children need an opportunity to experience different types of activities during the day to promote their fine motor skills, cognitive skills and socio-emotional skills. Our classroom has been set up with learning centers specifically designed for our 3 year old room and our Pre-K room to allow the children to learn at their own pace and through hands on experience.
