SVUSD Child Care TLC

The Learning Connection

Supporting families by providing excellent child care in a safe and fun environment.
The Learning Connection is a positive alternative for working parents in need of quality child care. TLC offers more than just child care; it offers children, kindergarten through 6th grade, a positive and meaningful before-and-after school experience as well as full-time summer and non-school day camps. TLC is a structured program designed to help children develop social, physical, and mental abilities. Group activities as well as individual time will help each child grow. TLC is located at each elementary school campus in the Saddleback Valley Unified School District. Students attending these schools are eligible to attend the program on that campus during the school year. During the summer the program is at various schools and all 1st-8th grade children in the community are welcomed. Staff is committed to offering your child a safe and fun experience. Each location has a Site Coordinator, a Sr. Child Care Leader, and a number of Child Care Leaders who together plan and implement a monthly calendar filled with a wide variety of activities. Transitional Kindergarten children are welcome to enroll in TLC before and after school, with the exception of Foothill. A waiting list may exist at some locations.
