The Early Edge - Tuition

Our Early Learning program (ages 4 and up) is very unique and effective. We do not use a boxed curriculum. The curriculum we use is very adaptable to children’s individual needs and has been thoughtfully created to empower a young child with knowledge and a love of learning.

Our very small group format is the optimal environment for young learners. Children are very social. They enjoy each other’s company and are motivated by their peers. Small groups are very conducive to the use of games and other methods in accordance with our play with a purpose philosophy.

All young learners require a very specialized, dynamic and creative session. Our goal is that children should leave our sessions feeling empowered, confident and happy.

We offer:

  • Group Classes – highly interactive, effective, and FUN!
  • 1:1 – often used as a springboard to prepare a student to join an existing group class

Math and Reading are separate classes. However, parents often simultaneously enroll their child in a math class and a reading class.

Following each session, we will:

  • Meet with parents to share the exact techniques and terminology we used during the session. We are always available to answer any questions.
  • Provide carefully considered practice material. We do not require very much additional homework. However, so that your child can fully enjoy this new adventure in learning, it is very important that you follow the instructor’s recommendations. For example, for our beginning reading classes, we often just ask that you review class material/practice the given reading book. As the children advance, they will be given additional resources to enhance their practice time at home.

  • Carefully take the time to prep for the next customized session based on your child’s needs. We not only actively dedicate ourselves during the session times with the students, but we spend much additional time planning ahead and preparing the perfect resources to meet your child’s unique needs, interests and style of learning.

Duration

Group classes run weekly and the content builds on itself. The math classes are designed to run through the year in preparation for the next level. How long a particular reading level runs depends on the students’ comfort level with the content. Each reading level continues for a few months and a child can seamlessly transition into the next level of reading classes on a continuum.
