DLC Nurse & Learn provides year-round high quality education, nursing care, and therapies to children of all abilities so that children and families have the opportunity to reach their maximum potential.
Explanation of Services
We serve students ages birth to 22 years of age. Children ages birth to 6 may attend our full day and preschool inclusion program and students ages 3 - 22 can attend before/after school for educational activities, therapy, and medical care. Any child with a disability or medical problem that prevents them from attending regular day care or other developmental preschools is eligible for our services. Our children have a variety of diagnoses including Arthrogryposis, Tuberous Sclerosis, Tay-Sachs disease, Cerebral Palsy, Down's Syndrome and Seizure Disorders which cause multiple disabilities. In addition, many require nursing care for medications, tracheostomy care and gastrostomy tube feedings. We are located on the Westside, but serve children all over Jacksonville and North East Florida.
DLC Nurse & Learn is a special education school dedicated to meeting all the needs of special needs children in a Christian, loving atmosphere. Our program is based upon the idea that children with handicaps are children first and their potential is ours to discover. We strive to help each child reach this potential by providing normalized activities geared toward individual skill levels. We believe this is best done when therapies are incorporated into daily activities. At DLC, our attitude gives your child the opportunity to say “Yes, I can!”
Our vision is to serve all children in Jacksonville that need our services, regardless of their families’ ability to pay. In the future we hope to have DLC programs in all areas of Jacksonville to be more accessible to all children with special needs.
