'''The Learning Community (TLC''') is small informal school based on the understanding that life and learning are essentially an adventure, and the community at large is a school. The team of teachers and parents acknowledges that Auroville has already acquired a wealth of communicable skills in many fields, and anyone who has skills or enthusiasm to share, is invited to participate in the evolving project. Avoiding the concept of ‘classes’, TLC involves the children into the local environment, while the emphasis on outdoors and physical activities quite literally puts intelligence into the children’s hands. Children in TLC have informal ‘campuses’ spread out over several of Auroville’s communities.

The Learning Community (TLC) is a school for children aged 7-14 aspiring to offer a free progress integral education. 'Base Camp' at Dana includes 2 main classroom buildings, an art center, a kitchen and other spaces. In addition, TLC spends time in other communities and outdoor spaces in and around Auroville.

Some elements of TLC are: individualised curriculum for each child, uninterrupted time to develop concentration, individual pace of work, learning by doing, materials and experiences to offer Aha! moments. Weekly planning and reflection is used as a tool to help the children to get to know themselves ‒ their learning styles, time management, their strengths, needs and challenges. Parents' involvement is an integral part of TLC.
