Book a birthday party with Team ELM
You should book a party with Team ELM because we are the best Staff team and have the upmost positive energy you will ever need! Us as staff are very creative, commutative and super helpful. We offer a whole bunch of different themes parties. For example, Spa beauty/ dance and show. That is a popular choice. We have Fashion/dress up where the children could make there imagination turn into reality. Sports and outdoor games, Arts and crafts which the kids enjoy because they get very creative, cooking, slumber party, as well as swimming and pool games.
Arts and Crafts is a theme we have done quite often! We supply the canvas's, the canvas holders, a couple bins of acrylic paint, smocks, plates and cups, paint brushes, and a finished board of the picture we are recreating. Team elm staff really chimes in as a helping hand because we want your children to feel great about what they painted. We do not only instruct, but we get just as involved as the children teaching them new painting techniques and how to blend properly. There is no right or wrong way of doing this, we encourage them to let loose enjoy themselves and create some magic!
Team ELM offers additional services such as face painting and balloons! Another fun favorite would be cooking. You would pick what we would cook or bake with the kids and we will have the recipe ready. Of course we have staff for supervision. if its an in office cooking party we would just microwave and use a hot plate, Anything requesting "in home" there would be more cooking options to work with. If we bake cupcake we could make them colorful, have the batter be rainbow for example and thats not only something fun to look at but would be fun colors to eat! Each kid could decorate using frosting and sprinkles. Contact Team ELM to book your party you do NOT want to miss out!
As a babysitting and tutoring company we LOVE to catch moments of the kids working hard as well as having fun. As babysitters we like to get involved in activities, games, art and crafts etc. As tutors, we feel very proud to watch our students achieve the lessons we teach. Capturing moments for example, drawing Halloween pictures in the fall time or writing with chalk outside in the back yard. Whatever we do, we would love to click and share with the parents and other kids we work with as well. Everyone who follow our Team elm socials get to see what we are about and can get a glimpse into a babysitting day.
For us tutors it is very important for us to make sure the children are learning and understanding the work they were given, but are not stressed and confused as we work along. We like to provide a comfortable and fun environment. Of course we have to respect privacy we need parents permission. After signing a "post consent form" we would capture awesome moments like your child completing and understanding an assignment, and or seeing them working super hard! Posting could provide an easy way to connect with other families as well.
At birthday parties the face painters would like to take pictures of the silly and cute art they created on the children's faces. We have painted spider man before, a fairy, flowers, puppy dogs and cats, and so forth. Glitter tattoos is a popular choice, the kids love them. Whichever one your child picks out they do come out really really cool looking and are so much fun to do. We have tons of glitter and colors to play around with, as well as the games and crafts we get ourselves involved with. Its nice to capture those moments as well and share with the our social medias so everyone gets an idea of all the amazing activities Team elm has and how much fun we all truly do have.
Why tutoring is so important.
Why is tutoring so important you might ask? Well, let me explain. In my opinion i strongly feel that tutoring will help build skill and educate children to where they are able to use their knowledge on their own outside and inside of academic places. Here at Team elm, we do offer tutoring as well as homework help, test prep and all core school subjects. We are such a reliable team your children could count on our help 24/7! As great as your child may be doing in school, say about an hour of extra help and time of some more background knowledge of whichever subject being taught, can only be beneficial.
We work with children of all ages. Now, with one on one tutoring children will get the motion that they are truly being heard out and understood. Your child is able to receive feedback of their strengths and weaknesses to where we could identify how we could have them build in the best way possible! Having a tutor is defiantly a positive role model to your child as well. we want to build there confidence and self esteem. We aim to turn their struggles into accomplishments and personal growth.
Whatever is most helpful to the parents that will benefit your child, we have certified teachers who tutor in home, in office and over zoom as well. Team elm will teach your child how to become an independent leader, gain trust in themselves and believe they are capable of anything they set there mind too. Tutoring will motivate you to want to do well in class and on assignments and most importantly, it will help encourage higher level thinkers to succeed in the future!
Homeschooling vs In Person
Are you still deciding over homeschooling and public schooling? Lets talk about it!
Homeschooling is providing a better learning environment for children avoiding negative treatment from other students as well as peer pressure and distractions. We have New Jersey certified teachers who specialize in every subject to offer. Us as teachers have an amazing way of building confidence within your children's work and self esteem. We always make sure to remind the kids that they are doing great to keep a healthy and positive attitude and work flow. Parents will be able to relax not stress about their children missing the bus or any public transportation not being reliable. On another positive note, Being taught online is very flexible and allows your children to have a strong sense of self and an amazing work ethic.
Being home schooled is allowing the children's education being less impacted by the distractions of life. For example, if your daughter had an unexpected type of appointment in the AM to attend during public school hours that would not be practical for her to make because the timing would be interfering with school work hours. Now, being home schooled and having a situation like that come up, there wouldn't be a dilemma. Choosing and discussing your own hours with your teacher, would make it sufficient for your daughter to arrive on time to her appointment. She would be able to take her English test at a later time rather then missing it and falling behind if she were to leave public school then coming back falling behind.
Home schooled children could work at there own pace. Sitting in an big classroom with 10+ kids staring and trying to cheat and whisper around you is distracting and not fair. Feeling the anxiety and pressure of who is going to finish first and do the better job is not a satisfying feeling. Children get upset when they are the last to finish a test or quiz. Some schools and teachers unfortunately do not offer that extra time to finish a test that your studying so hard on to pass, just to lead you to fail over not enough time.
