Before and After School Program at TCS

We are very excited to introduce a NEW program at Timothy Christian School — Before and After School Program, provided by Happy Face Nursery School (Williamsburg Location).

After months of work and planning, the NEW program is set to take off on Monday February 27, 2017.

Last year, we surveyed our TCS families and learned that there was a definite need for a before and after school program at our school. Partnering with a community respected, non-for-profit organization such as Happy Face Nursery School, we are excited to offer up this option as a way to bridge the needs for our part-time, full-time, or seasonal working parents in a safe and affordable program.

The before and after school program is available for all families – not exclusively TCS families. We are excited to open the facility of our school to serve the school community, and broader community of Dundas County and beyond. While TCS is opening the door of our facility for Happy Face Nursery School, it is very important to note that this is a separate option for any parent and is not connected to the school except for location.

The Before and After School Program is for any child that is 3.8 – 12 years old. Starting times can be anywhere from 6am to school starting time, and from school ending time to 6pm. Rates are $5.00 per hour per child. Children from other schools could have the busing option of being dropped off or picked up from the Before and After School Program at TCS. Happy Face Nursery School can also offer care to children on PD days (though not on stat holidays), March Break days, Christmas Break and possibly during the summer as well!

A huge thank you to Cheryl Firlotte, the executive director of Happy Face Nursery School for working hard with us here at TCS, to make all of this a possible enterprise.
