TLC Kindergarten | 2½-5 years old

TLC operates a licensed Early Years department for children with qualified teachers, experienced in the delivery of the Early Years Goals plus experienced and qualified assistants. For the teachers this means they have degrees in teaching early years. These professionals use their specialist knowledge to provide appropriately engaging experiences for young children to ensure the best start when they reach school age.

The dilemma for many parents is the provision of care before and after the school day. TLC now offers an extended provision from 7.30am until 6pm if required.

Don’t delay! Give your child an excellent start in their acquisition of language, communication, literacy, numeracy, socialisation, physical, creative and emotional development – give them a TLC experience!

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.

TLC Holiday Programmes

 Summer School

Join us for 5 weeks of Fun, Action & Education

Monday 25 June 2018 –  Friday 27 July 2018  | 9am-1pm daily

Join us for five weeks of fun activities which can be linked with English language lessons. Choose from only intensive English lessons for adults or children or combine the two. For those whose English is perfect, just have fun in the sun for any period from one to five weeks with our qualified teaching staff who will ensure that from 9am until 1pm, your time will be filled with exciting activities for all.

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.
