TLC Programs


Dear TLC Family: We appreciate your continued patience as we go through these trying times. TLC continues to re-evaluate the situation. In the past we have gathered information weekly from parents and staff in order to determine whether it is feasible to open. We have also taken into consideration the stringent requirements by Social Services for social distancing among children and staff, as well as the general supplies that would be needed to operate: masks, disinfectant, gloves, baby wipes, paper towels etc… Currently we have a limited supply of these products in this area. Governor Northam issued the stay at home order through June 10, 2020 except for going to the grocery, pharmacy, bank, or if you fill an “Essential Job”.

In following Governor Northam’s instructions to accept children of parents who fill jobs of “Essential Services”, we estimate between preschool and school age children we have 28 families who fit into those job categories. In continuing to speak with TLC families who fill essential jobs over the past several weeks many indicated you would be sheltering in place to ensure the safety of your children. Taking our TLC families health & safety into consideration as well as the health of our staff and their families TLC remains closed.

* TLC will remain closed thru the MONTH of April (closed thru Friday, May 1) and re-evaluate Thursday, April 30. Parents of TLC will not be charged tuition during this period.

TLC will continue to monitor updates from the governor and other health authorities and will contact families with any updates as soon as they become available and bring you up to date on changes in our status. I am committed to keeping in contact with parents by phone or e-mail on a regular basis as we go through this pandemic.

Please contact me at with any questions or concerns. We look forward to seeing our TLC children and families once the Covid-19 danger has passed.
