From the Director:

Whole Child Education. It's Tutor Time's unique approach that nurtures and educates every aspect of a child's development - cognitively, physically, socially and emotionally. The philosophy concentrates on skills including early literacy, logical thinking, problem solving, social understanding, physical coordination, creativity and positive character traits, such as cooperation and self control. Whole Child Education allows your child to develop the critical-thinking skills and intellectual curiosity that fuel success in kindergarten and beyond. By nurturing all these areas of your child's development, we are creating good citizens with a strong intellectual curiosity. The heart of Tutor Time is our teachers and support staff. They come from a variety of backgrounds, but they all have a few things in common: love for education, a passion for teaching and a dedication to providing the best possible experience for your children. Tutor Time's teachers don't look at their class as a group, but as a collection of individuals, each with his or her own specific developmental needs. Ongoing assessment of each child's needs is an essential part of knowing the right type and amount of activities that will encourage continual growth and learning in your child. A low student-to-teacher ratio ensures your child's unique needs will be met. Our educators simply love their jobs, a commitment best demonstrated by our low teacher turnover rate. But don't take our word for it. See for yourself by scheduling a tour!

Quality of Teaching

Individualized Teaching: From the Director

At Tutor Time, we believe all children are intelligent. Our Whole Child Education approach focuses on nurturing that innate intelligence through hands-on active learning and opportunities for self-expression and peer relationships.

Our exclusive curriculum is based on the belief that children are intelligent in many different ways. Aligned with standards set forth by national accrediting associations, our curriculum helps children expand on their own unique gifts.

Our classrooms are arranged with more intention than a typical child-care environment. They include 11 learning centers full of ways for children to explore and investigate all eight of the ways they are smart, and to build problem-solving and critical-thinking skills. Heritage Learning Academy's teachers supplement these experiences with large and small group activities that give children the tools they need to grow and develop into the leaders of tomorrow.

Day in the Life

General School Mission

At Tutor Time, we believe:
- The social, emotional, physical and cognitive development stages of growth in young children are of primary importance in the nurturing, caring and learning environment that we provide.

- Children learn through play, through exploration, hands-on-activities, observation, and positive feedback from parents, teachers, and other adults who interact with them.

- In a safe, happy, clean and organized atmosphere, children can learn at their own pace from everything they see, hear, touch, taste and smell.

- Unhurried, non-threatening, non-competitive and non-judgemental learning experiences and a positive atmosphere can be most effective for the growth and development of young children.

- A child who can experience success will see himself or herself as a competent and enhanced learner, thus increasing his or her self-esteem and creating a desire to meet new challenges.

A Typical Day

Our preschool program is a combination of teacher-led activities as well as active investigation time for the children. Active investigation gives our students the opportunity to explore the various learning centers in the classroom, and work on-on-one with their teacher! This is where your child's teacher will get to know your student's academic strengths and weaknesses; tailoring the curriculum to fit those individualized needs.

Home-School Connection

Home-School Connection: From the Director

Communicating with families is an important part of our everyday routine. Our Infants, One and Two year olds receive a "Daily Sheet" letting you know what the focus of the curriculum was, when they were changed, how they slept and if they ate their lunch. In the Preschool and Pre-Kindergarten classes we use monthly calenders, newsletters, emails and learning boards.

  • Hold social events at the school to build community
  • Are able to visit the school anytime we want
  • Go on field trips
