Before & After School Care
NOTE: At this time, due to Covid-19 and our risk reduction strategy of cohorting students, we are not offering our before school and after school programs. We are providing the information below to give you a comprehensive view of what our programs look like under normal circumstances. We hope to resume these programs when state and local risk assessments and recommendations support our doing so.
Before School Care Program
Before school care is offered every school day morning beginning at 7:45 a.m. We offer a supervised, unguided program that gives children an opportunity to prepare for their day in a relaxed and playful environment. The program meets in the school library. Students may bring their own non-electronic games and books. The cost is on a per-day basis.
TCS periodically offers various after-school workshops, such as: chess club, running club and pottery. Workshops may be fee-based and restricted to students of a certain age level. When offered, workshops typically meet one or two afternoons each week. The number of participants in each workshop is limited and filled on a first-come-first-served basis at the beginning of each trimester.
After School Program "Kids Project"
Kids Project, our all-ages after school program, is an outreach program of Chicago Danztheater Ensemble, an arts and theatre-based performance company. Since 2006, Kids Project's working artists have brought their love of the arts to TCS every day, offering programming across a wide range of areas, including dance, theatre, photography, painting, yoga, acting, and art with a common thread of creativity. Cost depends on the rate of participation. The program runs every day from 3:15 - 6:00 p.m. and can be used as a drop-in program, weekly, or daily as needed. Click here to learn more about CDE!
