About Us

TLC Early Learning is an integral part of TLC Healthcare’s fully integrated, intergenerational healthcare precinct; and it’s an Australia first.

TLC Healthcare was founded in 2015 when TLC Aged Care (est. in 1992) vertically integrated medical centres (TLC Medical Centres) into its residential aged care homes in addition to launching a Registered Training Organisation, TLC Learning.

TLC Healthcare is paving the way to fully integrated healthcare services that support entire communities. With well-documented benefits of integrating aged care, primary care and early learning, this is the first time in Australia that these services have come together, in one place, under a single provider.

TLC shares six core values: Respect, Accountability, Excellence, Collaboration, Integrity and Innovation. These values underpin our commitment to children's education, development and wellbeing, and our commitment to promote a love of learning that lasts a lifetime. 

TLC Early Learning offers a unique intergenerational program consisting of regular activities with residents of the co-located residential aged care home, Whitewater. Regular intergenerational connections help children attending TLC Early Learning strengthen their community ties beyond their normal experience. At TLC, we believe and recognise that children are competent, capable and curious. Our holistic approach to education and development fosters connectedness and engagement with different communities. We immerse our young learners in play-based experiences which enable them to explore, question, collaborate, think critically, problem solve, communicate and discover new things, all within a fun and supportive environment.

TLC Early Learning’s co-location with our community medical centre provides additional peace of mind for parents and caregivers. Our gym and fitness club, TLC Health Clubs, offers a range of classes, state-of-the-art equipment and kids swimming lessons. There is even The Village Café to enjoy a coffee and a meal, which is open when the Early Learning Centre is.
