TLC Kindergarten: The Best Start in Life for Your Child

Exciting changes are taking place at TLC’s Kindergarten in readiness for the new academic year. With growing numbers, an extension to the outdoor play areas was needed and this summer we have been hard at work adding more opportunities for learning outdoors through play. When we open our doors in September, Kindergarten and Reception classes will be amazed at the new facilities.

Inside the classroom, our experienced and highly qualified teachers work hard to maintain our reputation for high quality early years education which sees the children acquire and develop their communication and social skills through the UK National Curriculum’s Early Years Learning and Development Goals programme.

Our Kindergarten and Reception classes offer great value UK education in small classes but spaces are limited. To find out more details or to arrange a visit, please contact us at

More About Us

TLC Private School is located in a quiet area, close to the small fishing harbour of Agios Georgios in an idyllic environment. The school is away from people and traffic yet close to many natural features and facilities that make Cyprus such a popular destination for expatriates. The local environment is an easily accessible teaching and learning resource, one which is used regularly by students in their studies.

Nearby we have the legacy of people who lived here hundreds and even thousands of years ago as well as the modern Orthodox culture of the island in the beautiful local church. We also have sporting links in the local community through Matchplay and the Paphos International Sailing Club, both only 500m from school.

The above dates are accurate at the time of publication but the school reserves the right to amend them in the light of changing circumstances. Students must be in attendance at school from the first day.

Absence: Attendance is a legal requirement of all students until the legal age at which they may leave school. Attendance registers are kept in accordance with the law and actual attendance reported to parents.

Attendance is also noted on school leaving certificates. All absences must be explained by letter or email. It is important that the school is able to demonstrate its commitment to the principles and legalities of regular attendance.

Summer School begins on 27th June and runs until 29th July

The long summer holidays seem too long to some children and many parents. To help ease the burden of entertaining children over the summer holiday, TLC will be offering its summer school programme once more from Monday 27th June to Friday 29th July.

There will be an extensive and comprehensive programme of activities including art and craft, sport, trips out, drama, music and more which will run alongside a separate programme of intensive English lessons which can also be combined with the less academic activities.

You can take part in the Summer School on a weekly basis or save money by committing to the full five week programme. For more details, complete the enquiry form.

At TLC we are committed to enriching the experience of our students by organising educational visits. These visits may be to a local venue or further afield to Paphos or the other sites of interest that are in abundance in Cyprus.

We have our own school mini-bus and a fully qualified PSV driver, Michalakis Kyriakou (Mike). Mike is a very experienced driver and is employed full time at TLC to carry out many duties which means our students know him and feel secure around him. He in turn knows the parents of those he transports to and from school each day. Mike treats our bus as his own, carrying out daily checks, cleaning it inside and out and ensuring that servicing is up to date so that you can be assured that when your child is being transported on the school mini-bus, everything has been done to help ensure their safety and comfort.
