Kids’ in-person learning programs

Micro-schools and Homeschool services for 3-8-year-olds

Skip the morning hustle and enjoy a calm school day morning without sleepy heads struggling to get ready for school by 6 am. This convenient service will eliminate dealing with breakfast battles, drop-off morning rush/bus drama, trauma, and terrible traffic navigation. Most importantly, the children will enjoy world-class learning in a nearby micro-school with a small group of 2-5 peer inquisitive explorers or individually in the comfort of their home when a private tutor brings learning to them.

Catch-up packages (5-10-year-olds)

Given that the education system isn’t well designed to meet the individual needs of each learner, this individualized one on one tutoring is meant for kids that struggle in mainstream settings for various reasons. E.g., kids with delayed speech development, immigrants from non-English speaking settings, hyperactive kids, and those with learning gaps in lower grades that are in need of extra support in reading, math, or science. Research has proved that the effects of tutoring programs tend to be strongest and relatively more effective among students in earlier grades, from preschool through third grade.

Kids tours + field trips

The explorative tours are the best way to allow students to experiment and experience the things they learn and gain in-depth knowledge about various subjects. Children are not only exposed to an external real-life environment, they learn to interact and communicate with others, as they explore new environments. Unlike the usual crowded school kids’ tours, these educational trips are intentionally designed to allow children to practically implement known concepts in real life and become SMART. Children are challenged to apply their knowledge in a given context, gather new information about various subjects and concepts and then learn creative ways of sharing their ideas, bridging their knowledge and skills gap. Older kids can also use their new life skills to come up with income-generating projects of their choice.

Playgroup + center (<6 years)

These monthly organized reading and science sessions will keep kids that are too young to formally start school sharp and engaged as they get ready for formal education. Schoolchildren can join for exploratory and social play purposes.

Community Library services (3-12 years)

Families and schools can become library subscribers and access kids’ book clubs, reading camps, and after-school clubs membership virtually or in a less distractive work and reading space, with great story books, and an explorative kids’ outdoor play area throughout the year.
