CLASS INFORMATION


   

Upon completion of a selected morning program, the afternoon program can be added to create a full day experience for your child. The full day provides children an opportunity to learn and play with children from other classrooms while engaging in a variety of enrichment activities.   This program includes lunchtime conversations, a period of rest or quiet time and extended learning opportunities through playful interactions.   Parents provide a sack lunch.

 Before / After Care:    7:00am – 8:50am / 2:00pm – 6:00pm

TCS Children have the opportunity for continued playtime in the same, comfortable environment with our professional, caring teachers/staff while you work or run errands. Snack is provided.*

* Families with children with allergies are encouraged to provide an appropriate snack for their child(ren), as needed to ensure a healthy school eating experience.  In accordance with the Arizona Empower Program and in the interest of TCS parents, every attempt is made to provide a protein, nutrient rich daily snack for our children.  To help maintain competitive tuition costs, parents are asked to provide a portion of the snack in their child’s classroom, one day of each month.  Families may opt out of the snack contribution by paying a $25 per month opt-out fee.

School is in session Monday through Friday with half day, full day and before and after care options available.

Half Day Program:   8:50am – 12:00pm

Full Day:                     8:50am – 2:00pm

      

The school is divided into four to five groups of children according to age, each with a teacher, an assistant(s) and helping parents.
