Give Back Tahoe: Tahoe’s Connection for Families brings us together

Special to the Sun

Families play with musical instruments during circle time in the Toddler program.

TCF is a nonprofit organization in Incline Village, Nevada, that provides education and support for families with children from pregnancy to age 48 months.

TCF was founded in 2001 to fill the need in the community for early childhood development in the North Lake Tahoe area, a place where many do not have access to the guidance and support that an extended family often provides.

TCF believes that strong, responsible, respectful parents shape strong, responsible, respectful children. TCF provides parents with the tools and support they need to be their children's number one educators.

TCF's programs are interactive, designed for children and an accompanying adult to learn together with the help from staff.

Children who have come through TCF programs have a strong sense of self, the ability to transition to preschool with confidence, and are prepared to be good citizens of the world. Parents are empowered to raise children through knowledge, skill, and hands-on learning in an atmosphere of support.

TCF offers an Infant Program for families with infants under the age of 12 months and a Toddler Program for families with children ages 1 to 4 years.
