The Learning Child [TLC] in Nebraska provides you affordable, research-based, educational programs, and resources. Information in each program is based on research from faculty right here in Nebraska. Our goal is to empower all adults who care for young children by providing high-quality professional development that sets the stage for lifelong learning, discovery, and success. We’re here to help you take what you’ve learned from training and research and put it into practice!

To better serve all Nebraskans, Nebraska Extension has organized Extension Educators into Accountability Regions. Each Educator has a group of counties where they are expected to connect with clientele in their focus area as well as businesses, organizations, and communities to provide a strong linkage to Extension programs, products, and training.
