TCS Extended Day Programming
TCS Before-Care Program
The Before-Care Program provides a convenience for parents to drop off their child before 8:10am. Parents are required to walk their child into the building and sign in each morning. This program is held daily in the Art Room, from 7:20 to 8:10am and runs from Wednesday, September 7th through Wednesday, June 7th.
Cost: $8.00 per day or $40.00 per week.
TCS Homework Club Program
Homework Club provides a quiet supervised environment where TCS students can work quietly to complete their homework. At least one TCS staff member along with several UD undergraduates are available to assist our children with homework help, as needed. A healthy snack is provided at the beginning of each session. An outside recess will take place on the backyard playground (weather permitting) after 4:15pm. Up to this point, students are expected to work on completing their daily homework assignments. When a child completes work early, supervisors will have “optional” activities. Students should also bring a book to read. Although we cannot provide 1:1 daily instruction, there is designated supervision throughout to provide academic support and encouragement. To effectively staff Homework Club and ensure the necessary support for our students, indication of your child’s enrollment is required. PLEASE NOTE: Parents are financially responsible for each Homework Club session their child is signed up to attend. Exceptions to this are an unplanned early dismissal and/or an absence from school. Cancellation policy requires 24 hours advanced notice. Homework Club is offered Monday to Thursday, 3:00pm to 5:00pm from Wednesday, September 7th through Monday, June 5th
Cost: Up to one hour — $14.00 per day Up to two hours — $20.00 per day
This service is offered on a space-available basis. Please contact Mrs. Bachman as early as possible in the event your child will need to stay. We will do our best to accommodate. The cost is $20 and must be paid in cash at pick-up. Parents will be provided a receipt upon payment.
Friday After-Care Program
As NO Homework Club is offered on Fridays, we offer after-care services from 3:00pm to 4:00pm to accommodate parents who cannot arrive at regular dismissal. After-Care begins with a snack and 20-minutes of silent reading. The last 40 minutes include indoor/outdoor games and playtime.
