Why Choose TCDN Out-of-School Time Programs?
In our programs, children have fun and take control of their own learning, pursuing areas of interest to them during their time after school. We have excellent, professional teachers who develop warm relationships with children and families over years, and who model respect and equity as they engage children in activities.
An Easy Choice for Busy Parents
We know parents want convenience AND a quality program that your children love going to. Our sites are conveniently located in close proximity to the school that your child attends. We provide a nutritious afternoon snack. We are also open on many days that public schools are closed and offer extended hours on early dismissal days. (see our calendar for more information).
"My child seems to appreciate and use the homework opportunities the most." - ASC Parent
Our goal for school age children is to meet their individual needs by enriching their experiences outside of school. We enable children to feel as though the program is their place to develop relationships, be physically active, pursue interests, or do homework. We provide a unique opportunity within an informal learning environment, for children of varying ages to learn together.
Children may be enrolled for 2-5 days/week. Children may also be enrolled in the Before School Club and/or the Explorer (kindergarten complement) program. Attendance on school district early dismissal and school closing days require separate registration.
