Getting Ready for Kindergarten

Detroit Moms Blog thanks Tutor Time for sponsoring this post and providing helpful tips to use when selecting a preschool.

“Is my child ready for elementary school?”

If you’re the parent of a young child, or children, chances are you’ve asked yourself this question. We all want to make sure we’re giving our children every advantage and opportunity we can. That means ensuring their education begins early—and gets off to the right start. So how do you choose a preschool?

There are many factors to consider, such as:

  • Curriculum and learning experiences

  • Building safety and security

  • Physical fitness, indoor and outdoor activity

  • Healthy food selections

  • Extracurricular learning opportunities

  • Communication with families

Of course, it’s not just about checking all the boxes. Every child is different and so they all have different needs. Tutor Time® knows every child is unique. They embrace that individuality to nurture growth, learning, self-esteem, and imagination.

Curriculum at Tutor Time is inspired by the pioneering educational psychologist Howard Gardner and his theory of multiple intelligences. This philosophy recognizes that each child learns in different ways, so it’s important to recognize each child’s unique “smarts” to help them learn best. This approach focuses on children’s individual needs and strengths, resulting in a well-rounded child, prepared for school and future success. Embracing and nurturing little learners starts early, with their Infants and Toddlers programs, and progresses through Preschool, Pre-K, Junior Kindergarten, and into their before- and after-school clubs for school-age students.

As a committed partner to busy, working parents, the school features flexible offerings such as full- and part-time enrollment options. Plus, they’re dedicated to the complete well-being of your growing child through healthy food choices and plenty of physical activity. The best part? You won’t miss a single precious moment. With the brightwheel mobile app for parents, you receive regular updates of your child’s day, including photos and videos.
