Registration will be available for the 2022-2023 school year starting July 1, 2022. To register, please review the Parent Flyer. 
TK Childcare is designed to provide students with social, creative, recreational and life skill development.  It is a tuition-based program that is offered to all Thornapple Kellogg students in Kindergarten through Fifth grade.  Please see our Childcare Handbook for more information.  
TK Childcare Before and After School Program is offered to all students in Kindergarten through 5th grade. Child care will be in the new Early Childhood Center located at 3316 Bender Rd., which is scheduled for completion by the beginning of the school year. We look forward to our new facility.  TK Childcare opens at 6:15 a.m. to the time that school starts and from the time school ends until 6:00 p.m.

Hours of Operation

Monday - Friday
6:15 AM – Start of school day
End of school day – 6:00 PM
Childcare does not operate on vacation days.  We are open at our regular time (6:15 a.m.) on fog or snow delay days. We are open during days closed due to weather, unless otherwise posted along with the school closing.
Shuttle-bus transportation is available to and from the elementary buildings for both before and after school sessions, however we have a one-drop policy and childcare would count as your one-drop.
