Academic Success Philosophy:
We have an academically focused program because we take your child’s education seriously. Our Academic Success Program is designed to help your child succeed and to develop their confidence in their educational capabilities. TAS teachers support students with: time-management, study skills and homework. We conduct a daily homework check to help ensure not merely the accuracy and completion of your child’s homework, but also to check for their comprehension of it as well. Student are noticed and celebrated for their strengths and lovingly encouraged in their weaknesses. Our goal is that they will grow in confidence and take ownership in their educational journey as young, growing students.
Our homework program is designed for students who need extended homework time, or who have a high focus on academics. We offer one-on-one and group tutoring, as well as individualized academic plans based on the collaboration with student, parents, elementary school and TAS teachers. The focus is to complete all school- assigned homework every day. After homework is completed, these students will join in on outside time, free time, STEM, or art projects.
Stem gives children a chance to sharpen their academic and social skills through a variety of STEM themed activities. Students have a blast engaging with their teachers and peers in the STEM activity for the day. Our STEM program is well-rounded and is different every day of the week. We also alter STEM activities based on the children’s interest. We want them to enjoy the experience and be engaged in the experiments. Our goal is to make learning fun.
We will pick up your child at his/her school every day they have been scheduled. Booster seats will be provided for those kids who don’t yet meet the height or age requirements to sit in the car without a booster seat. We follow the state booster seat requirements that are as follows:
Washington's Child Restraint Law - Effective June 1, 2007, children less than 8 years old must be restrained in child restraint systems, unless the child is four feet nine inches or taller. A child who is eight years old or older, or four feet nine inches or taller, must be properly restrained either with the motor vehicle's safety belt or an appropriately fitting child restraint system. Children under thirteen years old must be transported in rear seats where it is practical to do so.
A daily afternoon snack will be provided to all kids at their arrival to TAS. Two snacks are provided on conference and half days. Along with providing a healthy and nutritious snack, we believe in using any snack or lunch opportunity as a chance to practice using appropriate manners. A teacher will always be sitting with the kids interacting and using the time to create healthy, caring relationships with each child. All kids will be reminded to say please and thank you, use appropriate language while others are eating, and ask to be excused when they’re done. We believe that, when instilled in young children, the ability to use good manners and interact well with others is a crucial aspect of healthy childhood development.
