The Learning Center of Dr. Phillips uses the HIgh Scope curriculum and Reggio Emilia approach to teaching. Perhaps, the most difficult lesson any parent or teacher must learn is to allow a child to live comfortably in their youthful world and to encourage the to discover and follow their self-chosen paths to knowledge.
We accompany our children in their journey, clearing the path of obstacles and offering encouragement and guidance, not surging to the forefront to lead the way. The fundamental premise of the High Scope curriculum is that children are active learners-learning bes from activities they plan and carry on themselves.

The State of Florida will pay for 540 hrs. of instruction to preschoolers who have turned 4 years old by September 1 of the current year. TLC is offering a 3 hrs. a day VPK program from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM for the school year from August until May. Graduation is usually held before the end of May. TLC offers a choice to parents to enroll their child for more than the 3 hrs. of VPK. The part time program is offered to allow the child to remain at TLC until 2:00 PM for a small fee. The full time program allows the child to be brought into school at opening time until closing time. There is a reasonable charge for the extra time the child will stay, before and after VPK.
