Tutor Time's Pre-K classes and early education program provides children with the skills they need for elementary school. Here, your child will learn effective communication, work in groups and independently, and develop a deeper understanding of their world.
Tutor Time’s Pre-K program guides children toward:
Our Pre-K classroom features eight learning centers designed to expand your child's skills, improve their understanding of important concepts, and help them explore their world.
This center uses a range of art techniques, basic color concepts, and group cooperation to develop a child's creativity, self-expression, and problem-solving skills.
This center focuses on practicing inventiveness, goal setting, and critical thinking while building hand-eye coordination through counting, sorting, and patterning exercises.
Children will develop their early writing and reading skills, expand their ability to express emotions, and learn about the world around them through cooperative, pretend play activities.
In this center, children learn basic math concepts, like addition and subtraction, along with sorting, ordering, and measuring.
By combining moving, dancing, and singing, this center helps improve each child's coordination, cooperation, and communication skills.
By studying classification, analysis, prediction, and experimentation, children learn about plant and animal lifecycles, physical sciences, and earth science concepts.
This center focuses on developing important literacy skills by emphasizing story reasoning, print awareness, and simple word recognition.
By combining letter and word recognition with lessons on segmenting words into sounds, combining sounds to make words, and word recognition and formation, children enhance their ability to communication through writing.
Our LifeSmart™ early childhood educational curriculum, inspired by the Multiple Intelligences theory of educational psychologist Howard Gardner, recognizes that children learn in different ways. We embrace every child’s unique “smarts” to help them learn best. With the help of our digital lesson planning tool, teachers can offer customized curriculum to focus on each child’s unique needs, and observe and assess their progress along these 10 development scales:
The ability to set goals, plan an approach, and interact with the world.
The ability to use music, movement, visual arts, and drama to express unique ideas and feelings.
The ability to use expressive and receptive vocabulary, conversational skills, and effective communication.
The ability to demonstrate phonological awareness, knowledge of the alphabet, and reading and writing skills.
The ability to understand symbols and their sequencing, as well as to use problem-solving and critical-thinking skills.
The ability to use and understand numbers, patterns, sorting, and ordering, plus using addition, subtraction, measuring, and graphing skills.
Desired Outcome: Child creates graphs of real objects making comparisons between groups.
The ability to understand, observe, describe, predict, and gather data about the natural and physical world.
The ability to develop a strong understanding of themselves, their families, their communities, and the larger world.
The ability to develop fine and gross motor skills, and to understand health and nutrition.
Get Moving, Get Learning
Get Moving, Get Learning
Active learning is one of the best methods for teaching children. When they move, they provide their brain with blood and oxygen, which is why playing and learning are perfectly paired. Tutor Time practices active learning every day, and now, you can do the same at home.
...children’s brains are more alert when they are moving. This is why it can be so important to incorporate movement into educational activities, such as practicing literacy skills.
The ability to show self-awareness, as well as offering respect and empathy.
Milestone: Learning about self.
Desired Outcome: Begins using emotion words (e.g., “I’m mad”) to get needs met, as opposed to simply acting out needs.
