Before and After School Care (for preschool children only) is changing for the 2016-2017 school year. Please note these important changes: Parents are responsible for notifying the school staff on a monthly basis if there are any changes to your child’s schedule. Please remember that before school care is an additional $5 per day and after school care is an additional $10 per day. Failure to sign up in advance for Before and After School Care will result in a $1 charge per minute that the child is attending either program (i.e. if you did not sign up, but your child stays at school until 3:48 you will be charged $18). It is important that you notify staff if your child will be in attendance so that we can accommodate our staffing schedules accordingly. A sign-up sheet will be available at the end of the month for the following month’s scheduling. The 9-hour limit for maximum number of hours in our care (a best practices policy for early child development) still applies for all TLC students.

About Before and After School Care at TLC

TLC offers two options for families of preschool students in need of extended childcare hours through a Before and After School Care program. This program is held in a preschool classroom. We request that parents sign up for the extended day options each month so we can provide appropriate staffing for the number of children who will be present. Please note that while both options are available to parents, children may be at TLC Learning Center no more than nine hours total on any given day. This limitation is to ensure children receive adequate time with parents and caregivers outside of school, and is part of our research-based best practices services for serving children.

Before School:

$5.00 Per Day

Available Monday through Friday, 7:30AM - 8:30 AM

Families who need extended care in the morning may bring their child to the center prior to the start of preschool. Children will participate in child-directed activities in a multi-age classroom environment. Teachers will pick up your child at the start of their school day and escort them to class. You are welcome to send your child in with a light breakfast snack. TLC Learning Center is a nut-free facility, and a microwave is not available.

*Parents must sign up in advance on a monthly basis to ensure that we provide appropriate staffing for the children.

After School:

$10.00 Per Day

Available Monday through Friday, 3:30 PM - 5:30 PM.

This program is available to families whose children attend the full day preschool program. Children will participate in a multi-age classroom environment. A variety of structured and child-selected activities will be provided daily, including free play, literacy, fine motor activities, music, and movement. Due to the fact that snack is provided in the afternoon for full-day students, the after school program does not provide a snack.

* Parents must sign up in advance on a monthly basis to ensure that we provide appropriate staffing for the children.
