Getting Ready for the New School Year
Orientation day is September 6! Here’s the link to our Back to School page to get ready:
Working with us can be very rewarding as a parent. All our regular staffed positions are full, but we're still looking for substitutes! These positions are coop positions and earn credit toward your student’s tuition. They are flexible and give you a glimpse into the inner workings of the classrooms as well as getting you involved in the TCH community. Email Kim Gallagher, email@example.com if you want to know more about either of these opportunities!
Bus transportation is available for children every day between The Children’s House and the Hall Street Station. Cost is $1.50/ each way. Zoom Cards are available for purchase at the Hall Street and Cass Road Transfer Stations.
