All of TLC’s classrooms are designed to provide the appropriate amount of support for your child’s needs. Self-contained classrooms provide a cheerful, nurturing environment for children with special needs who still require great support from an instructor or teacher assistant.
Self-contained classrooms come in two sizes: our 12:1:2 classrooms contain twelve children, one teacher and two teacher assistants, while our 8:1:2 classrooms contain eight children, one teacher and two teacher assistants.
Children who attend TLC in one of our self-contained classrooms receive the same high quality pre-academic, science, math, early literacy, and music instruction as children in integrated classrooms. Additionally, the same fun activities, social skill building, and other pivotal experiences all take place in self-contained classrooms.
Many visitors to our building comment that they can’t tell the difference between our self-contained classrooms and our integrated classrooms. We think that’s exactly how it should be!
