Our unique Tutor Time LifeSmartTM curriculum, which follows a “Best Practices” approach to early childhood education, is based on extensive research and inspired by the work of respected development/early education theorists Jean Piaget, Erik Erikson, Lev Vygotsky, and inspired by Howard Gardner’s theory of multiple intelligences. We recognize that every child learns differently and every child is smart. LifesmartTM also comes with a set of well defined and detailed goals designed to build your child’s cognitive, social and emotional needs.
Teachers are careful to facilitate and encourage, asking open-ended questions, that spur literacy development and support emerging writing and math skills. Preschool and up classrooms include learning centers that are designed around eight “Smarts”. These well equipped learning centers invite children to participate in self-directed investigations that build problem-solving and critical thinking skills.
