Our Mission & Goals
“Tulip Kids, Tulip After School, and Tulip Kids Academy (Child Development & Pre School Center) were founded upon our passion for nurturing children and families. ‘ Your children light up our world ‘ is not a slogan we found in an anthology of aphorisms about kids. The words are from our hearts and a true expression of how we feel. We never grow tired of working in our schools.” — Ms. Deepti & Ms. Sneha
The two most important jobs in America, and everywhere else, are parenting and teaching. Our most valuable national treasure is our children. Within them lies every possibility for a brighter future and a better world in which to live, work, and play. Therefore, the thoughtful education of every child must be viewed as a critical priority, second only to keeping them safe and healthy, and giving them a solid foundation of self-worth, strong social values, and ethics. Contributing to any child’s development is a joyous privilege and a serious responsibility. Children energize us and make us better than we ever thought we could be.
The Tulip Centers exist for the purpose of serving the families who entrust us to care for and to educate their children. Parents and teachers have a bonded partnership in their common goal to raise up each individual child to be a happy, productive adult, who is well-prepared for the responsibilities of meaningful work, informed citizenship, and community/global engagement. We recognize that each child has a unique set of cognitive, academic, physical, social, aesthetic, and emotional needs and our programs are intentionally designed to educate the whole child. We and our staff are committed to providing an environment which is safe, caring, respectful, and orderly, in which children may trust that the adults will assist them thoughtfully to learn important concepts, to develop skills, to discover and nurture new talents/interests, to enjoy their time spent in Tulip Centers, and to incrementally develop responsibilities and autonomy. Learning should not be dreary for children so teachers are chosen who will make lessons exciting and fun. We will maintain high-end standards and expectations for ourselves and others, including the children, because it sends a message to children that we believe in them and in their ability to succeed. All aspects of our programs are child-centered and mindful of individual learning styles/preferences, in order to more fully realize our underlying daily goal for each child to feel happy and successful as a result of their time spent with us.
