TCH Lunch and Additional Childcare Information


The website address for the OrderLunches program is https://childrenshouse.orderlunches.com.


Welcome to our online ordering program. Start by going to https://childrenshouse.orderlunches.com and click on "Register.” It will ask you for a school password which is TCH1. Follow the instructions for setting up your family’s profile. The website functions like a typical shopping site with a virtual cart. Please be sure to check out & pay or we will not receive your order. Do not close your browser prior to receiving the confirmation display or your order may be interrupted and not fully processed. If you wish, you can print your order by clicking the print icon.


Review your student’s profile(s) and class assignments. If you do not see a menu listed when you log in, it may be because your child is not in the proper classroom. Go to “My Account” and click “User Profiles”. The “location” box has a drop-down menu with all of the classrooms. You can update the classroom there.


The lunch menu will be available two to three weeks before the start of the semester, and the lunch program will begin on the first day of the semester. Lunch may be ordered by the day, month or semester. Lunch orders must be completed by midnight two days before the date of the lunch.

Childcare not included in your tuition agreement (Early Care 7:30-8:30am and Friend’s Club 3:30-5:30pm) may be ordered through the Early Care & Friend’s Club tabs at Orderlunches.com by the half hour. Early Care reservations must be completed by noon the day prior to the care. Friend’s Club reservations must be completed by noon the day of the care.


The semester ordering for the Nido and Young Children’s Community lunch program will be ready for you to place your orders two to three weeks before the start of the semester. To place an order:

  • Open the Nido/YCC menu and select the days of the week your child will participate in the lunch program and put those days in your “cart.”For example, if your child’s schedule is Tuesday and Thursday, click on the menu item for the first Tuesday and Thursday your child will attend and put those in your cart. This will register you for lunches every Tuesday and Thursday throughout the semester.All semester lunch orders must be in and paid for by the first day of the semester.
  • Due to the very low cost of this program, there will be no refunds for missed lunches.

*Nido - YCC childcare reservations are not currently available online. Please discuss your needs with your classroom guide.


Families will be allowed five forgotten lunches before getting “locked out” from forgotten lunches. If your child incurs more than five forgotten lunches, you will receive a phone call from the front desk asking you to bring a lunch to school. Alternatively, you can log on to OrderLunches.com and satisfy your bill to clear the five forgotten lunches. Additional details about our lunch program can be found on the Program Info page on Order Lunches.
