Welcome to Tutor Time Childcare Learning Center in Lake Zurich, IL. We also serve families from Barrington, Deer Park, and Hawthorn Woods! My name is Nancy and I am the Center Director. I have 30 years of experience in the field of early childhood education.
At Tutor Time, we offer Infant care, Preschool and other early education programs that provide a strong foundation for learning and development. We have a curriculum that is designed to meet each child's developmental needs and goals, as well as enrichment programs that emphasize health and nutrition. We also have a Montessori preschool program!
Your family's health and safety is our top priority. We perform temperature and health screenings upon arrival for anyone who enters our school. We also provide curbside drop-off and pick-up service, in order to limit the number of people entering the building. We keep our classrooms clean at all times through our rigorous cleaning procedures. All staff are required to wear masks at all times in our school, and we encourage children age 2 and up to do the same.
We also provide you with access to our live streaming cameras in your child's classroom through an app called WatchMeGrow as well as provide you real time updates through the brightwheel app. These methods of communication keep you connected to your child's day at all times!
In order to bridge the learning gap created when local schools needed to close early this spring, we have created The Prep Lab - a program that compliments our current School-Age program with educational activities geared towards ensuring that learning continues even when children are not in school.
We have wonderful teachers, many of whom hold bachelor's degrees in early childhood education. They each receive ongoing and monthly training.
I encourage you to come in for a tour of our fantastic facility to see everything that Tutor Time in Lake Zurich, IL, can offer your family.
Our first priority is making sure infants both are safe and feel safe, in a nurturing, stimulating classroom. Toys and materials allow for freedom of movement within safe boundaries, so children can explore, develop motor skills, and engage their curiosity.Learn More

We’ve been recognized as a high-quality early education program.
Discover opportunities to be creative, engage your mind and body, collaborate with friends, and learn new things. Preschool and Pre-K classroom enhancements include iPads with educational apps; flexible seating options so children can move as they learn; hands-on STEAM activities; robots for early coding.
In this classroom, your child will make discoveries and think independently, as we prepare them for the future. The authentic Montessori curriculum enables children to learn in their own way, at their own pace, through the practical application of sensory-based and self-directed activities. Our certified Montessori teacher spends significant time with each child, helping them discover unique talents and interests. Plus, a full complement of Montessori equipment offers tangible, hands-on learning opportunities to develop children’s skills and senses.
This mixed-aged classroom (for 3- to 6-year-olds) also helps children to develop social skills and challenges them to learn to work together—while being mindful of the best interests of others.
Ask your school director for additional details.
Education: Early Childhood Associate's Degree
I chose to pursue the early childhood field because of the vast amount of growth and development that occurs during a young child's life. Seeing them grow and change is amazing!
Education: Bachelor's Degree in Child Development
I've been in the early childhood education field for the past 12 years. I love working with children of every age group. I enjoy being able to share helpful tips, tricks, and strategies with the teachers to help them to make their classrooms the best environments they can be!
