Welcome to TCS!

Takoma Children's School (TCS) is a progressive year-round preschool serving 2 to 5 year-old children and their families with part-time through full-day options. Our school's outstanding teachers and staff provide a nurturing, safe, and fun-filled environment that fosters creativity and a love of learning through play and exploration. We value each child's unique needs and contributions, as we foster social, emotional, physical, and thinking skills that children will need and use throughout their lives. Our TCS family is committed to celebrating and reflecting the diversity of our community.


Takoma Junction

The school is looking for a new home. One of the many options we have been pursuing is the new development that the City of Takoma Park has been planning at the Takoma Junction parking lot (located on Carroll Avenue between the firehouse and the COOP). The City released a request for proposals to develop the land earlier this year. TCS worked with several developers this past spring as they drafted their bids to the city, including sharing our requirements and needs for moving our school. TCS has not signed any agreements with the developers at this point in the process, but we are excited to see the school included in at least three proposals.

The Takoma Junction proposals are posted online - http://www.takomaparkmd.gov/hcd/takoma-junction-rfp
