Welcome to Okemos Tutor Time. My name is Angela and I am the school Director. I began my career in early childhood education with Tutor Time in 1999 as a teacher at this location, and recently returned to Okemos as the school Director. I maintain an open-door policy for anyone that would like to stop in, and I encourage families to join in on our numerous community events.
At Tutor Time, we offer well-rounded educational programs for Infant/Toddlers, Preschoolers and even School-Aged children! Our programs provide the perfect foundation for learning and development, while ensuring school readiness. We do this through intentional planning of lessons and developmental tracking for all ages. We also have enhanced our health and safety protocols, following CDC and state health department guidelines, like mask wearing and additional sanitizing procedures.
Our amazing teachers are highly educated and have many years of experience. Every teacher goes through annual CPR certification and bi-annual First Aid certification. To better serve the children and families, teachers attend ongoing training on child development and early childhood education. In addition, our School Education Manager Melissa Janetzke, provides monitoring of classroom curriculum implementation and support, along with the opportunity for an onsite mentor for teachers.
We're excited to offer new technology in our Preschool and Pre-K classrooms! Children have access to iPads with educational apps, and our Pre-K class features a SMART Lab with hands-on experiences. Our Inspire Plus interactive table allows children to collaborate on problem solving, math and science skills. Our state of the art STEAM Lab offers a space for children 2.5 years & up to explore hands-on concepts in science, technology, engineering, the arts, and math. Our STEAM lab even includes an interactive floor with developmentally appropriate games! Additionally, we will have WatchMeGrow coming soon, where parents can live stream into their child's classroom from any device.

Starting at the front door, our already robust health and safety procedures have been enhanced to ensure a clean, welcoming school environment. The well-being of your child is our top priority, now, and always.

Since I was a young child, I always wanted to be a teacher. As I grew, I discovered I had a passion for early education. After attending LCC for child development, I started my career teaching young children in 2009. Formally I have been a Pre-K teacher, and for many years I was the lead teacher for children 0-3 at CACS Early Head Start. I have been in my role here at Tutor Time Okemos for almost 2 years and have been excited to work with teachers to grow the young minds of tomorrow!
