Learning Through Play, Every Day: A Glimpse Inside

TLC Centre Inc. is a 64 space, non-profit, licensed child care facility located within the Town of Carman, Manitoba. We serve families within Carman and its surrounding communities in need of full-time, part-time, and casual childcare.

TLC provides children in our care with a well rounded nurturing atmosphere operating under the professional guidelines of a licensed child care facility.

Our focus is to provide high quality care and age appropriate programming in an environment that promotes growth, learning, personal development and fun to those children of working parents, those seeking employment, students, children with additional support needs, those in need of respite care, or for socialization and experience.


Hours of Operation: 6:45 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. Monday to Friday; excluding statutory Federal and Provincial Holidays


TLC Centre is attached to a gym, a wonderful space to develop and expand those gross motor skills on a daily basis along with our spacious outdoor play.

During the summer months, areas of our outdoor space are designated as foot-friendly to provide the sensory experience of having grass and sand between your toes.

Children and staff alike enjoy our harvest from the raised beds in our playground. These beds provide fruits and vegetables for snacking as well as regular baking opportunities to promote Math and Science at an early age.
