It's The Little Things

Tutor Time and the Great Pumpkin!

This October our Tutor Time schools called upon their creative side and generated some amazing pumpkins! We held two contests over several weeks to determine everyone’s favorite pumpkin out of ALL the pumpkins (and there were so many good ones!). We want to thank everyone for participating with us on Facebook. The children and teachers all had so much fun building these pumpkin creations. We are happy that everyone got to view and enjoy them.

Finally: a little predictability! Because...

Moving is a big hassle as it is. Children add a whole new element to the process that must be accounted for. However, like anything else, if you’re prepared it can minimize the stress and headaches. Here are some tips for moving with children. Be mindful of meals and snacks. A transition between homes will throw off the eating routine, which influences food, dishware, ingredients and more.
