School Delay Program Hours  

If school is delayed before 6:00 a.m., TC Childcare will be open starting at 7:30 a.m. to receive students.  However, if school is delayed after the 6:00 a.m. opening time, TC Childcare will still be provided until the start of school (beginning at 6:00 a.m.)  An additional $5.00 fee will be applied for this service.  In the event that school is canceled, you will be called to pickup your child.  The additional $5.00 fee will be charged is your child is in attendance during any of the time from 8:30-10:30 a.m. (i.e. session fee plus a $5.00 additional fee).


Scheduled Early Release Program

TC Childcare will be running Early Release Day childcare for school aged children (5-12) at MacNaughton Elementary during the school year, for each of the scheduled early release days.  Parents will be required to register attend separately, and will need to indicate if transportation from another school building is required (Sand Lake to MacNauhton, etc.).  The cost for the program is $25.00 for the 1st child, and $21.00 per child for each additional child.  A non-refundable deposit of $10.00 will be required per child/per date.  This $10.00 fee will be added to the child care account upon requesting care.

This option is available even if you do not use TC Childcare on a regular basis.  Parents wishing to use this "Drop In" service must have all required paperwork completed and on file prior to using this service.  Cost for the "Drop In" service for early release days is $30.00 for the 1st child, and $26.00 per each additional child.
