A message from Pamela Surber, Director:    

As the TLC Director, it is my goal to continue to nurture the growth of the TLC Program, ensuring that it provides children, families and community members with lifelong learning opportunities in a safe, educational and drug, alcohol and tobacco-free environment. 

In its 12th year, TLC has grown from offering a select number of programs at only four District 63 schools in 2001 to a wide variety of out-of-school time programs at all seven District 63 schools, the TLC Teen Center and at Culver School in District 71 in 2012.  Our very popular TLC Summer Studies and Summer Adventures Program welcomed 168 children from 20 different schools around the area!

We are continuing the expanded length of the TLC year for the 2012-13 school year.  We will begin on August 27, 2012 and end on June 3, 2013.  Parents have expressed appreciation for the longer TLC year and we understand that it is something that helps families.  We aim to please!

 I’d love to hear from you with feedback on the website or any TLC-related issue.  Feel free to contact me via the phone, (847) 827-4137, or email,  I look forward to hearing from you.

Pamela Surber, Director
