Welcome to Our School

Welcome to Tutor Time on Old 28th Street in Grand Rapids, MI. My name is Ruth and I am the center director. I have been working with children for many years. I have an Infant/Toddler CDA with 21 credits in early childhood education as well as early childhood program administration.

Our school offers Infant Care, Preschool and other programs that provide the perfect foundation for learning and development.

All of our staff is certified in CPR/First Aid and engages in monthly training that is geared towards all aspects of early childhood education. We also participate in necessary training according to the policies and requirements of Michigan State Licensing.

We would love for you to come in and tour our center to see how we can meet your family's child care needs. Call or stop by today to schedule a tour of our Tutor Time educational daycare in Grand Rapids, MI.

Here's what people have to say

5 out of 5 stars
My child's school is wonderful! He has learned so much! I truly appreciate the time and effort the teachers/staff put into each child's learning abilities. I cannot say how thankful I am to have my child attend such a wonderful school.
The staff at Tutor Time does a great job taking care of my son. I know he is well loved, being educated and taken care of while he is at the center. Thank you Tutor Time staff, for all you do!
We absolutely love our school. The teachers and directors are wonderful and caring.
I really enjoy the brightwheel app, it makes me feel involved in my child’s day without actually being there and gives a nice summary of feedings, diaper changes, and naps.
We have been very pleased with our daughters care at tutor time. Ruth the director is fantastic. We have never had any issues. All of our daughters teachers have been very caring. They are constantly doing fun actives and learning lessons with the kids. The communication has been great. Nothing negative.
The Director, Ruth, and Asst Director, Becky are both amazing and engaging. They also welcome me when I come in and say good bye as I leave. They know my son and can tell me stories about him. I can tell they truly care about every single child in their center.
We love our school! Our son has grown SIGNIFICANTLY in the last 6 months academically and socially... so much so that we were going to enroll him in a young 5s program elsewhere next year, but decided he is ready for Kindergarten! The level of care and education given to him by his teachers is phenomenal. I am greeted DAILY upon drop off, and given a small chat at the end of every day at pickup. You
can tell that Mr. A TRULY cares about the education and care that he is giving each member of his class. Miss Paige and Miss Kasey are always up to date on how the day was in the event that we can't get a report from Mr. A. This whole group, front office included, at the Grand Rapids Old 28th St. location have been such a blessing to our family! Thank you for ALL that you do for our son, but also for every child in your care. Your excellence SHINES!

I have had the privilege of sending my youngest son to Tutor Time, not once- but twice. We love the family feel we get there, and how well our teachers have gotten to know and love our son. This school has been such a blessing to us, and we will continue to sing its praises even after we have to leave to go to Elementary school. Mr. A and the team of teachers in Pre-K and Ruth and the office staff
have prepared our son for Kindergarten so well that I feel he could go tomorrow and jump right in. This coupled with anyone who relieves the teachers, the lovely woman who makes such healthy food (that my picky eater actually EATS!). Coming from an elementary educator and mom of 3, I'm pretty picky when it comes to who cares for and teaches my kids in my absence. We love it here and thank them sincerely for the love, care, and knowledge that they have given our littlest man! He adores coming to school and seeing his friends and teachers. Your hard work does NOT go unnoticed! Thanks so much, Tutor Time 6690 Old 28th St.!

This center is AMAZING, my child has had many struggles with many other daycares at the young age of 3. Ms Ruth, Mr A. Ms Kasey Ms Paige Ms Beth and all her amazing staff have gone above and beyond on helping my daughter have a better opportunity in her upcoming school life. They have managed to come up with plans and many different ideas that included alot of patience love care detail and consistency
amongst the staff. This is not easy to find in a daycare. Other daycares have given up on my child and cared more about profit and then when they saw my child gave them a run for their money, they didn't want to put the work in for my childs needs nor provide the resources she needed, yet those centers considered themselves a school.Tutor time on old 28th will forever have a place in my heart. I know my child was in loving hands when I left and returned. I know my little girl will be a better person because of the incredible people who gave her all they could every day, consistently.
