On-Site Education

The Loved Child (TLC Family Center) offers on-site education for expectant parents & those with babies, toddlers, and young children. TLC professionals facilitate workshops, classes, and/or consultation services in family-friendly locations such as health care practices, wellness centers, fitness centers, early childhood programs (daycare centers, preschool programs, & elementary schools), private homes, and community parenting groups.
