Tuition and Schedule

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.

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.


Early Edge Group Classes for Preschool – First Grade

The classes that we are currently offering for enrollment are:

  • Reading, Steps 1-5 and Advanced Readers with Spelling
  • Intro to Math
  • First Grade Math

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. We strongly recommend our small group classes as an ideal model to develop a love of learning.

You are welcome to try a complimentary class!

We may have a class running that suits your needs or you may form a group with friends and propose a class.

You may simultaneously enroll your child in a math class and a reading class. Group classes run once a week 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.

New classes typically start up in September and then at various times during the year. You are welcome to join a class that is already in progress.

Teaching early learners requires a very specialized/creative approach and a true passion for helping little ones discover their love for learning. All of our small groups are taught exclusively by our founder, Anu Jain. See what our parents have to say about her.

Tuition per child – Small Group (2-4 children)
One Session/ Week
Tuition Per Month*$250

*55 minute sessions; 4 weeks/month; tuition/fees are non-refundable

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.

Above and Beyond… 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. We team with parents by keeping them informed and we are always available to answer any questions.

There is a one time annual curriculum support fee of $99 per subject (reading or math). Students may seamlessly transition between levels as they progress during the school year (September to June) with no additional fees. The summer curriculum support fee is $30/subject. All tuition payments and fees are non-refundable.

This fee includes:

  • materials/worksheets, carefully customized each week for your child in order to –
    • maximize their potential
    • keep them engaged
    • fill in any gaps
    • regularly review important concepts
  • our lending library
  • manipulatives/customized tools/games used to enhance your child’s learning experience during the sessions
  • verbal/written progress reports
  • individualized instruction for parents on how to support their child’s learning style and needs at home
  • communication with school teachers

New student specials apply to the first month of tutoring. All tuition/fees are non-refundable.

We have very limited space. Sign up today! You are welcome to try a complimentary class.
