Frequently Asked Questions

Is the Reading Skills Program right for my child?

All 4 year-olds and entering kindergartners benefit from developing beginning reading skills. During live online classes, the teacher provides guidance for each child and shows parents how to support reading development. Every child makes progress during the program.

What happens during the live online classes?

Each live online class lasts for an hour and is led by a trained, enthusiastic teacher. Students can see, hear, and interact with each other and the teacher in real time. You’ll attend all classes with your child. Every class includes phonics and sight word instruction, games, reading aloud, comprehension-building discussions, and enrichment activities in great picture books. Classes are engaging, positive, and productive for students.

What kind of internet access do I need to participate in the program?
A broadband internet connection with a common provider will work fine. Prior to the start of live online classes, you’ll receive an email with setup and login instructions and a link to join the class.
What kind of computer or equipment do I need for the live online classes?

To participate in live online classes, your child will need access to a computer (Mac or PC), Chromebook, or tablet (Apple or Android) with working web camera, speakers, and microphone. We do not currently support Kindle. While it is possible to access class on an Apple or Android mobile phone, we recommend using a device with a larger screen for the best class experience.

What will my child do between classes?

Between classes, your child will complete sessions of interactive online lessons and activities, including phonics and sight word lessons and reading enrichment activities. The lessons are easy for children to follow and complete on their own.

Can I attend class with my child?

You’ll attend all classes with your child and learn easy and fun ways to support your child’s reading development. Parents enjoy attending class and learning helpful reading techniques they can use.

Is it possible to make up missed classes?

Yes. In the event of a scheduling conflict, you’ll have the option to take a live online make-up class at another time or with another teacher. Enroll now in the class with the most convenient schedule for you, then simply call or email us if you need any make-ups.

What is the class size?

To ensure that all children have a great experience, we cap enrollment at a maximum of 18 students. Your child will get personal attention from the teacher and have a chance to actively participate in class activities.

Family Discount: After enrolling one student, you will receive a $20 discount for each additional student you enroll in a summer program. This discount only applies to family members at the same mailing address.
