Welcome families! My name is Toni Ann DeFranco and I am the center director here at Tutor Time Baldwin. I have been with the Tutor Time family for seven years, holding various positions including lead infant teacher, team lead and my current position as director. I am new to the Baldwin family but cannot wait to tell you all about our center.
During this time of uncertainty, Tutor Time Baldwin takes great pride in creating a safe, nurturing and educational environment for your child. We have many protocols in place to help make sure our children, families and staff stay as healthy as possible. Our first step of precaution is limiting the amount of people inside of our building- we are currently only allowing staff and children inside. We are taking temperature of staff and children along with monitoring for symptoms as they enter the building, we have stopped our family style dining and we have amped up our cleaning and hand washing.
When we get back to the basics of our center, it is through our unique curriculum that we nurture children's physical, social, emotional, and cognitive development. Our school offers various early education programs including Infant care, Preschool, Pre-Kindergarten and Before- and After-School care. Our Prep Lab program in School-Age helps bridge the gap between school years and support distance learning.
Our center also utilizes unique Smart Board technology in the Pre-K classrooms, which allows the children to have a hands-on learning experience through intelligent, web-based literacy and math activities. Children and teachers can manipulate information with a touch of their hand. For technology for our families we'll feature WatchMeGrow, a live-streaming camera system accessible through your smart device.
We have a wonderful team of teachers! They participate in training opportunities throughout the year to stay current in the field of early childhood education. We are one big family and we take great pride in our center.
Please feel free to call us at anytime to learn more about our school!
