Philosophy & Approach

School Philosophy

General Approach to Learning: Play-Based

From the Director:

"Tutor Times premier full and part-time programs are shaped by our proprietary curriculum which is dedicated to developing the whole child. We focus on meeting each and every child's developmental and educational needs. Children advance through each program at their own pace. Classrooms include rich learning centers because children learn best when they are actively involved in constructing knowledge. Self directed investigations and play build problem-solving and critical thinking skills. Tutor Time teachers supplement these experiences with large group activities that encourage socialization. We give children the foundations that prepare them for elementary school and set them on a path of life-long learning.

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Tutor Time understands the importance of nurturing a child's love of learning. Activities encourage exploration, problem solving and discovery, providing the skills needed for elementary school and beyond. Tutor Time teachers foster your child's self-esteem and happiness, nurturing the confidence needed for success later in life. Full and part-time programs meet each and every child's developmental and educational needs, and we allow each child to advance at his or her own pace. With fun, educational programs for infants through school-agers, Tutor Time has something for every family."
