Snacks and Lunch
Meals are served family style at TCC, with children serving themselves to practice self-help skills. Meals are a social time, and children are encouraged to chat about their day with peers and teachers. Milk and water are provided.
Snacks are served twice daily: around 9 am and 3 pm, and are provided by TCC.
Families have a daily choice of either bringing a packed lunch from home or signing up for our school lunch program. School lunches are prepared and delivered by Burlington School Food Project.
The Burlington School Food Project is a Farm to School program that connects students and their families with whole, fresh, and local foods to improve student learning and the health of our community.
School Year Schedule & Hours
7:30 am - 5:30 pm
We generally open the day after Labor Day and end our year in early June. We are closed for the week between Christmas and New Year’s Day. There are no other week long breaks during the school year.
Summer Program Schedule & Hours
8:00 am - 5:00 pm
We have limited openings for our summer program, which begins two weeks after the end of our yearly program and runs for 8 weeks.
Notice to parents:
Please be mindful about signing your child in and out each and every day, but also making visual or verbal contact with your child's afternoon teacher at pick-up.
Each classroom now has gates at both the front and back doors. These gates are to be opened by adults only, no children. Please help us keep everyone safe by reminding your child that gates are an "adult job."
Things to always have at school:
Pants and/or shorts
Rain jacket and rain boots OR
Snow pants and snow boots
Sandals and/or water shoes for outdoor water play (for our summer program)
Swimsuit and towel (for our summer program)
Please label all of your child's items with their name or initials - it is very difficult to tell one black mitten from another!
We go outside twice a day, everyday.
