The idea is simple: instead of children going to school, the school goes to them. Teaching teams, comprised of early childhood educators, travel to pre-selected community locations where they set-up, conduct, and facilitate the program. Each team serves two communities, one on Mondays and Wednesdays, the other on Tuesdays and Thursdays. The program runs for 2 hours twice a week. Tūtū and Me targets an enrollment of 50 children and their caregivers at each community location.

Tūtū and Me provides learning opportunities for children's social, linguistic, cognitive, physical and emotional development, and meets the needs of anyone directly involved with them and their development. The program emphasizes activities that promote growth in the following areas:

  • Cognitive: to assure/develop average intelligence as measured by standard tests
  • Social: to develop social temperaments that bring positive responses from others
  • Language/literacy skills: to give children a strong start to assure that effective reading skills will be attained by fourth grade

The Tūtū and Me program is free, is conducted in public places and provide entry points into needed health or social services for families who otherwise might not know where or how to get help. The program will also be a point of identification for children with special learning needs. Below is a list of the current Tūtū and Me Programs:
