Early Childhood at TCA

At TCA, we are committed to quality instruction from the earliest years. Considerable thought and attention have been given to identify the foundational elements needed in order to give young children the best possible educational start. Our experienced faculty provides excellent research-based early literacy instruction, and the teachers, administrators, reading specialist and literacy coach work together to implement and utilize an exemplary literacy program that helps develop a love of reading and a foundation for academic success in our students. 

We’ve designed our curriculum and classrooms to complement how young children learn and experience the world. Through multisensory learning centers, hands-on manipulatives, role-playing, current technology and the finest instructional strategies, our students enjoy a stimulating learning environment.
