We pick up from selected local public and private schools and can assist you with transportation if your child’s school is outside of our area. All children arrive at our facility promptly after their school dismisses. Our program begins with a light snack and afterwards children immediately begin his/her homework. Children work in groups divided by grade that are assisted by one or two counselors.
Homework assistance is the focus of our program.
All children are grouped by his/her grade and work with one or two counselors until all homework is completed.
Counselors are knowledgeable in all subjects and current curriculum's across all of the grades that we serve.
Your Child's Teacher assigns homework so that your child can better understand the work given in the classroom; therefore we make sure that every child understands his or her homework before the end of the day.
Our staff is equipped with all materials and tools to complete every assignment given from kindergarten through 5th grade.
