Special Education (CPSE)

The Support Children Need to Shine

TLC is a 4410 pre-school designed and staffed specifically to help students with special needs thrive.  Our expert, experienced team includes 11 dual-certified special education teachers and nearly 30 licensed teachers’ assistants who give your child the direct attention, instruction and support needed to develop to the fullest.

We have 11 classrooms, ranging from self-contained settings for children who need the most support to fully integrated, inclusive classroom settings. Our interdisciplinary team of early child experts works closely with your family to perform a needs assessment, create an individualized educational plan (IEP), and guide your child through the cognitive, social, and developmental milestones to be met on the way to kindergarten.

Providing Brooklyn’s Best Early Childhood Education for More Than 25 Years

The TLC approach to early childhood education is quite simple: we work with children where they are and provide them with the skills and support they need to grow.  When you look in one of our classrooms, you’ll see children playing together, working on projects with teachers and assistants or independently, learning to read, practicing social skills, and having fun. What we teach is based on the research-based tenets of the Creative Curriculum, a proven method that empowers children to become eager, enthusiastic, lifelong learners.

Children with special needs often require additional support as they achieve their early education goals. For this reason, TLC has built an interdisciplinary team of experts to provide any needed assistance as your child grows and learns:

  • Full Time RN on Staff
  • Speech/Language Therapists
  • Occupational Therapist
  • Physical Therapist
  • 2 School Psychologists
  • Licensed Social Worker
  • Music Therapists

Your child benefits from having a team of focused, devoted experts working together. You have the benefit of seeing your child’s full, true potential realized. Everyone who works at TLC loves what they do and it shows!

TLC is dedicated to providing a nurturing and child-centered environment. Our comprehensive early childhood education program provides your child with a strong grounding in pre-academics, science, art, music, movement, and activities to promote a happy, healthy lifestyle.

A Diverse, Dynamic Community of Learners

Our cheery, friendly, four-story TLC building is home to a rich community of students from diverse backgrounds and ability levels. You’ll hear many languages here, including English, Spanish and Arabic. You’ll also hear lots of laughter as children have fun while they’re building skills and form those all-important first friendships!
