Winter Olympics 2014 at TCS!

The Winter Olympics have been in full swing at Sochi, on our televisions at home and in the classrooms at TCS!
Some of our kids stepped up onto the podium and we asked them a few basic questions about their Olympics; what country they were representing, their sport of choice, the equipment and any special food that they require to be the best athlete they can be.

We couldn't resist sharing this recent post by a TCS parent about our program - many thanks!  

My children have been attending TCS for 5 years, and they have been an amazing asset to our family and our children's development. This place is incredibly nurturing, their student/teacher ratio is unheard of for a preschool, and they also have the flexibility to transfer your student, if a longer day is necessary…My son will be in their Pre-K Program next year, and I'll truly be sad when our journey there is done. They have taught me so much as a parent, how to nurture my child, work through difficult developmental milestones, welcome in, learn, and implement from my son's speech therapist, etc. This place is amazing! I would love to gush more about them… Diana Nickel (Jan 2014)
