Enrollment Information

TCS is a year-round preschool with warm, talented staff, and low student-teacher ratios. Due to the intimate size of our school, and the high quality program we offer, we encourage families to indicate on their application all schedules they could consider in addition to their ideal schedule.  The number of openings at TCS varies from year to year, but one application is all that is needed to be eligible for enrollment until your child is kindergarten age.

Enrollment options include full-time (5 days per week) and a few part-time enrollment slots (3 or 4 full-time days per week) in our Bluebirds classroom. None of the classrooms offer half days.

Tuition is paid monthly and varies based upon the class and whether the child is enrolled full-time or part-time. For the 2022-2023 school year, the rates are:

  • Bluebirds (ages 2-3): $2,300 (5 days per week); $2,000 (4 days per week); $1,688 (3 days per week)
  • Stars (ages 3-4): $2,195 (5 days per week); no part time options
  • Rainbows (ages 4-5): $2,060 (5 days per week); no part time options

Tuition typically increases by approximately 4% each school year. TCS does not offer a sibling discount.
