new Inclusive preschool!

Our focus will strengthen relationships between the child and the important adults in the child's life. Each child is encouraged to have a lifelong joy for learning and respect for others. Our program is focused on these guiding principles: 


  Relationships are central

                       Play is primary context for learning

Learning is integrated   

                                                                            Intentional teaching enhances children's learning experiences


75% of all learning is visual. For a child with visual impairment, skills are learned functionally, developmental milestones are kept on track and independence is consistently promoted. We use sensory integration to maximize residual vision, strengthen compensatory skills and develop auditory perception. Four classrooms for up to 48 preschoolers were newly built in 2014 and are staffed by teachers of the visually impaired and child development specialists.

support center

A program designed for people with fragile conditions or who choose to do things at a slower pace for easier mobility. The Support Center was created,in 2002, due to a need to serve the individuals who were aging in place at TLC, and who told us what they wanted in a supportive, individually structured day program.


We retain the services of several professional consultants to design plans to support and teach clients the skills needed to maximize their independence and encourage family members to be involved in their loved one's plan and progress.

carr aquatic therapy center

Named for philanthropist Peggy Carr, the aquatic center has been a large part of TLC services since the early days of the 80s when it was an open-air pool.  In 2004, the Carr Center was remodeled and enclosed so that hundreds more (including infants, children and their families) could enjoy the therapeutic benefits of hydrotherapy, or water healing.  


We know that hydrotherapy is a recognized benefit for enhanced physical and mental development. With as little as 20-30 minutes in the water every day, one increases muscle tone and improved agility. This leads to: 

  • Greater flexibility and range of motion
  • More lung capacity
  • Improved muscle mass
  • Increased stimulation to the brain and nervous system

Nursing for intermediate care facility homes

Our residential program is built using the structure of intermediate care facilities, and this includes nursing services at varying levels, depending on our residents' needs.  We have a stellar staff of professional RNs, LVNs, CNAs and they do a wonderful job keeping us healthy at TLC.  An ICF living arrangement is a health facility that calls for 24-hour personal care and supportive health services.  One of our 12 homes is classified as ICF-DDN, which adds nursing supervision for people with developmental disability with intermittent recurring needs for skilled nursing care.  For more information, click here.
