As a first time mom, the thought of daycare was scary. My husband and I toured Kids Connection and were so impressed. We decided to enroll our son and he began his journey in daycare in late April of this year. Well, it has been nothing short of amazing. He is so well adjusted and loved, he is all smiles when I drop him off and smiles when I pick him up. I go to work everyday confident that my son is being loved, interacting with other children, developing social skills and that all his needs are being met. The communication from the staff, the daily log of his feedings, diaper changes and naps is so crucial and has exceeded my expectations. The staff that work here are so special and we could not be happier.

At Tutor Time, our childcare and educational approach is designed to nurture every aspect of a child's development, while stimulating problem-solving and critical thinking skills. We focus on your child's unique interests and abilities through hands-on active learning and opportunities for self-expression.

Our LifeSmart curriculum is inspired by Howard Gardner's multiple intelligence's theory. Our teaching strategies are designed to maximize the full development of each individual child and recognizes how they learn different subjects in different ways, utilizing their intelligence's, or "smarts." Our rich learning centers are therefore designed around eight "Smarts":

WordSmart: Reading, writing and telling stories
NumberSmart: Logical thinking, patterns, and numbers
BodySmart: Expression through one's body, movement and physical activity
DesignSmart : Visualization, building, drawing, and design
RhythmSmart: Rhythm, signing, and creating music
NatureSmart : In tune with physical world and living things
PeopleSmart : Working in groups, sensitivity to others, leadership
SelfSmart: In touch with personal feelings and thoughts

We also know education is not a one-size-fits-all experience. That's why we created the School Readiness Pathway, to provide educational options, empowering parents to choose the best fit for their child's abilities, strengths, and needs. You'll find individualized lesson plans in each classroom, in every school, based on the specific abilities and readiness to learn of those students. The result: Customized early education that's perfect for your child.

Our Beyond the Classroom Curriculum: Weekly Push-In Programs include: Grow Fit: Yoga, Music with Miss Laurie, who keeps us singing and moving with her magical guitar, and Spotlight on Spanish in our Two's, Preschool and Pre-K programs. We promote sign language in our Preschool and Pre-K classrooms and delighted to have Classy Baby Sign ASL teach in our Infant and Toddler classrooms. Our Preschool and Pre-K classrooms are busy with Handwriting Without Tears and ABC Mouse on the classroom computers and Smartboards.

However, to truly understand what we offer, I encourage you and your little one to come in for a tour to meet our Administrative Team, our awesome, caring faculty and visit our classrooms and playground.
