Pedagogy that makes us different:
Our teaching and learning philosophy is based on Multiple Intelligence theory developed by Howard Gardner, professor of education at Harvard University. A child can be taught in a wide variety of ways using music, cooperative learning, art activities, role play, multimedia, field trips, inner reflection, and much more.
Children at Tulip Kids are valued members of the learning environment, with their individual needs and interests helping shape the curriculum. Through thematic teaching, Tulip Kids brings together various aspects of the curriculum into meaningful association. Social studies, emergent literacy, mathematics, science, music, art and sports classes are introduced each day. Play and exploration are also vital components of the learning process. Each classroom follows a developmentally appropriate curriculum to strengthen and increase the skills and knowledge of each child.
At Tulip Kids we value parent communication and encourage families to play an active role in the educational process. Through daily emails, class websites, parent-teacher conferences and daily check-ins, parents are involved in every step of the learning process.
