Application & Tuition

2018/2019 School Year


TCS Registration 2019/2020 for returning families begins January 7, 2019. 

Enrollment for interested families who are new to our program will commence following our New Family Registration Open House Thursday, January 24, 2019. We require that all new families visit the school before any registration can be accepted.


Please read carefully to insure that your child is properly registered.

A Registration Form must be turned in for each child in the family who will be attending the 2018/2019 school year, including the registration fee. A form without a registration fee will be considered an 'incomplete' form, and no spot will be held for that child until the fee has been received. 

If any of the registration procedures present difficulties for your family, please talk to your lead teacher, or bring your concerns to our attention and we’ll do our best to accommodate you. Email will be used to confirm receipts of your information and payments. If you have any questions, email us at
