What are the benefits of Tuesday School?
Socialization: All classes have interactive, student-centered, group-based learning activities.
Portfolio: Teachers provide documentation for your homeschool portfolio, including photos.
Drop-off: You have the option to drop off your child.
Materials: Teachers will send home supplemental materials and a course outline so you can continue learning at home. Make-up materials provided for missed classes.
Instruction: Our awesome teachers are homeschool moms just like you. They have unique skills and big hearts to share with your child.
What is the Tuesday School philosophy?
Growth Mindset: Just because you haven't done it yet, doesn't mean you can't. Our goal is to give kids the confidence to try, even if they might fail. Mistakes are an opportunity to learn.
Group Learning: We believe our children benefit from cooperating with others, and learning in a group. Sometimes it's just more fun! Teamwork, self-awareness, and empathy are just some of the side effects of group learning.
School Family: A happy, relaxed child will have an open mind for learning. We encourage building a strong connection, among students, teachers, and parents, to create a safe space for our kids to be who they are!
Conscious Discipline: We are dedicated to helping children manage themselves, so we follow the principles of conscious discipline to teach self-regulation when the need arises.
