Before & After School Care

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!
