By Tutor Time
No matter the situation, Tutor Time International Nursery and Kindergarten aims to provide learning without compromise – anytime, anywhere – either at any of their international preschool locations in Hong Kong Island, Yuen Long and Kowloon Tong, or online via their newly launched E-Learning System. Through innovative changes to their curriculum, with new lessons uploaded daily, Tutor Time’s students and families can access lessons remotely at any time. Materials for the weekly lessons can be picked up at any of the five Tutor Time campuses. Virtual classrooms provide the opportunity for students to interact socially with their peers and their teachers.
Tutor Time provides a full-immersion Mandarin-English bilingual curriculum either in-person or online. The curriculum also incorporates S.T.E.A.M. and Learn from the Start programmes, with the understanding that each child learns differently and needs to be supported as they progress through their education journey at their own pace.
From the beginning, the Tutor Time teaching method has drawn inspiration from the Reggio Emilia philosophy and the works of Howard Gardner, Rudolf Steiner, Maria Montessori and Jean Piaget. Drawing on these different pedagogies ensures that students enjoy a curriculum with a balanced mix of self-directed and experimental learning paired with a focus on the integration of intellectual, practical, and artistic development.
The curriculum is supplemented by the Tutor Time’s Enrichment Programme, which offers a wide variety of language, sporting, creative and reading programmes. These programmes help students further develop crucial coordination and cognitive skills that will help them now and in their future.
Tutor Time’s campuses provide safe, spacious and age-appropriate spaces in which children can learn and explore. With 8,000 to 20,000 square feet of creative space, for children aged six months to six years, their campuses include indoor and outdoor playgrounds, as well as gardens, to ensure the best learning experience for students.
Tutor Time families come from all over the world. Their varied backgrounds, languages and cultures combine to create a truly international educational experience. Because of this, Tutor Time graduates show ready acceptance of others, confidence in themselves and are prepared for the diverse community that is our world.
