About Us

We are a progressive, play-based early childhood program for children ages 2 years to 5 years of age, inspired by the Reggio Emilia philosophy of early childhood education. Our school is open year-round and provides high quality preschool for working families. 


TCS creates a place for children where spontaneous and joyful experiences abound and where teachers stimulate and embrace each child's desire to learn. Play and skill-building are the cornerstones of the curriculum. Each activity and learning center is designed to support children's ideas and their developmental growth. The curriculum is reflective of and responsive to children's needs and interests. Children are empowered to solve problems in their interactions with others and with a variety of sensory experiences. Mistakes are viewed as learning opportunities, generating lessons that help children to succeed.


We treasure our staff and teachers and value the role they play in our community. We offer competitive salaries and good benefits. Through participation in professional development each staff member continues to add to his or her experience, skills, and knowledge of early childhood education. Fairly unique to other full-day preschools, teachers are given time to plan with their colleagues to create a child-centered curriculum. It is our goal to retain our outstanding staff and teachers for as long as possible.
