Creativity is a Chameleon

It’s the most versatile skill. From entertaining ourselves to making a piece of art we use creativity in different ways. At TYO our kids not only utilize this skill in the class but also on their own. We provide them with ideas and let their creative minds work. Check out the creativity in the classroom here at TYO! –Lila Lila is a Fall 2012 intern.

When We Grow Up…

As kids, we have dreams of what we want to be when we grow up. From realistic dreams to some more outlandish ones, the possibilities are endless and everything feels like it is possible. At TYO we encourage such aspiring and positive thoughts in children in order to urge them forward in making their dreams realities! Take a look at some of the professions our children see in their futures. -Lila Lila is a Fall 2012 intern.

Two Heads are Better than One!

Sports, group projects, and homework with a friend—what do they all have in common? Teamwork!

At TYO children learn to work together in many capacities:  passing the ball during soccer to a teammate, helping each other with homework, and so on. Check out the pictures below that showcase TYO children using the valuable skill of teamwork while having a blast doing it! -Lila Lila is a Fall 2012 intern. Related Continue reading…
