In the classroom

Our classrooms include areas for playing, learning, sleeping, eating and diapering that create a safe and empowering environment. The classrooms are also divided into general areas that meet your child’s need to:

  • Move: Here children can use their muscles and bodies for crawling, climbing, jumping, dancing and playing games. This increases physical coordination skills and is a way young children make connections in their brains.
  • Explore & Express: Our area for sensory exploration and creative expression. We encourage children to explore their inquisitive nature by experimenting with open-ended materials such as crayons, paint, water, sand, and modeling dough.
  • Relax: Research shows that many behavioral problems stem from emotionally overwhelming social situations. Our child care rooms are quiet and cozy places where children and teachers can read books, tell stories or have conversations.

The Pre-K curriculum is based on extensive research and inspired by the work of respected development/early education theorists. The educational curricular activities are aligned with math, literacy, science, creative arts and social science.

Each month, Mrs. Barnes will choose activities based on the unique needs and interests of the children in her class. A Kindergarten readiness study showed that in just six months, children in our program made educational gains usually expected after a full year.

 

 

In the classroom

Our classrooms include learning centers full of ways for kids to explore and investigate all eight of the ways in which they are smart, and to build problem-solving and critical-thinking skills. Tutor Time teachers supplement these self-directed experiences with small and large group activities that give children the tools they need to grow and develop into the leaders of tomorrow.

We allow our students to have everyday choices of enriched activities, such as board games, seasonal activities, outdoor time, grade level books for reading and enjoyment, Art Activities, and Different Varities of music to enjoy.

This Link below is a video explaining the importance of putting your child in an after-school program. How children can benefit from being in an after-school program and how it can make a big difference in their self-esteem and who they are as a person.

 

 

In the classroom

We also think the environment your child is in is an important factor in his or her continued growth. Research shows that the classroom environment acts as a third teacher when it comes to being developmentally appropriate, engaging and rich with learning opportunities.

Our learning centers feature clearly defined areas for a variety of experiences. For example, books are displayed on a shelf in a comfortable area that encourages reading. And speaking of books, we supply materials at a variety of levels — books a 6-year-old will enjoy and those that will engage a 10-year-old. We also supply group and individual board and card games.

SUMMER PROGRAM
