TCPS Lower School

We designed this success-oriented program to be supportive and challenging, and to focus on teaching the student how to learn, so the students can continue to learn effectively beyond TCPS. Students feel safe to take risks in an atmosphere that nurtures their self-esteem and teaches responsibility for their own actions.

Inherent in our program is a celebration of the wonders of life and the excitement of learning. In-depth learning is encouraged, allowing for an exploration of both the abstract (theoretical) and concrete (hands-on) aspects of a subject. In addition to the acquisition of excellent academic skills, The Child's Primary School promotes the learning of life skills (such as communication and problem solving) and developing positive interpersonal relationships amongst the students and the staff.

We believe that a family should have a role in a child's school. Therefore, we welcome our students' whole family and consider them an important addition to the school. We guide each and every decision - whether it be in regard to curriculum, fundraising, or admission policy - by our basic values and philosophy... the child is primary.

The Child's Primary School curriculum includes in-depth study of the following subjects:

  • English
  • Mathematics
  • Science
  • Social Studies
  • Spanish
  • Physical Education
  • Music
  • Fine Arts
  • Research Technique
