Club Hour: Small Groups Focused on Exploration
At TNCS, we believe that learning should be fun. Club hour typically runs from 4:00 pm to 5:00 pm and is an exciting part of the regular After School Care program. Small groups explore a range of topics in an active child-centered environment. Themes vary by session and season; examples of clubs offered include:
- Latin American Dance
- Frisbee Club
- Picturing the Numbers: Data Visualization
- Mandarin Chinese Language and Culture Club
- Rangoli Art
- Space Club
- Chess Club
- Board Games Club
Descriptions of our new specialty program offerings—including a strings program—can be found on our Specialty Extracurricular Activities page. The fun starts at the beginning at the start of the 2016–2017 school year!

TNCS After School Care Mission
Our After School Care mission is to provide a culturally enriching program that promotes the physical, emotional, and social development of each child and that meets the highest quality child care standards.
Spaces Are Limited
To ensure that each child gets the support he or she needs, we keep the number of students per instructor low. Each After Care program has a maximum enrollment to maintain this ratio. Click below to sign up and secure your child’s spot in TNCS’s After Care program.
