At the TCEE, we have a variety of high-quality, developmentally appropriate programs available, most  with flexible schedules which can meet the needs of busy modern families.

Early Drop-off

  • Early drop-off is available for all TCEE students from 8-9 am.
  • Drop-in is available with 24 hours’ notice, space permitting.
  • Children begin their day engaged in quiet play, emphasizing sensory activities.
  • Mixed-age grouping supports children in separating from parents and building self-help skills and independence.


  • Enrichment programs are available to TCEE and BEEP on Beacon students from 1-3 pm each day.
  • Drop-in is available with 24 hours’ notice, space permitting.

Extended Day
An arts-based focus promotes children’s self-expression, imagination, and communication skills.  A mixed-age grouping supports our older children’s ability to be peer models and to further master skills by “teaching” younger peers. Younger children benefit from learning from older ones.
