We offer a high-quality, individualized education in a supportive environment. The preschool program follows a Montessori curriculum, stressing choice, learning from peers, and the cultivation of concentration. The elementary program takes a modified Montessori approach, featuring small mixed-aged classes, technology, arts, and hands-on science. School-wide, we focus on teaching children to be gracious and kind to one another.

Students can begin at TNCS at age 2 years. We currently offer three programs:

  1. Bullet  Pre-Primary Program: ages 2–3 years

  1. Bullet  Primary Program: ages 3–K years

       Kindergarten is taught in the Primary Classrooms; new K students  

        may join for Kindergarten and continue into our Elementary Program.

  1. Bullet  Elementary Program: grades 1st–5th for 2014–2015

At TNCS, we strive to take full advantage of the sensitive period for language acquisition, the wonderful window that exists before about age 7 or 8 when a child can learn a second or third language with little effort. We begin with complete language immersion in either Spanish or Mandarin Chinese for the Pre-primary classes, then transition to partial language immersion and daily language classes for the Primary and Elementary classes.

TNCS is committed to providing each child the opportunity to become an independent, secure, and balanced human being. Each child cultivates his or her natural intellectual curiosity while developing leadership skills and the ability to think critically. We embrace the individual and design developmentally appropriate activities and lessons to engage and enrich.

Located in the wonderful, lively neighborhood of Fell’s Point in Baltimore City, TNCS occupies the former Mother Seton Academy and St. Stanislaus church buildings. Our location is convenient to the residents of Southeast Baltimore as well as to families who commute into Baltimore to work.
