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.

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, month after month. 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 and can vary from group to group. 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 the Fall. New classes also start up during the school year. Please contact us to let us know you are interested. Given availability, you are welcome to join a class that is already in progress at any time. If you would like to join a class in progress, we may recommend some 1:1 sessions for your child so that they feel comfortable joining the class.

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

*55 minute sessions; **4 weeks/month

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 students’ unique needs and styles of learning. Our lessons are not dependent on a set packet of worksheets. We use creative and dynamic methods and materials to keep your little one engaged and enjoying their new adventure in learning. We team with parents by keeping them informed as to their child’s progress and how to best support their child at home. We are always available to answer any questions.

There is a one time annual curriculum support fee of $150 per subject (reading or math). This fee is valid for the current school year from September to June and includes all of our customized worksheets, our lending library, manipulatives, and other customized tools/games used to enhance your child’s learning experience during the sessions. Students may seamlessly transition between levels as they progress during the school year with no additional fees.

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

Early Edge 1:1 Tutoring for Preschool – First Grade

We not only dedicate ourselves during the session times with the student, but we spend additional time planning ahead and preparing the perfect resources to meet your child’s individual needs and style of learning. Our lessons are not dependent on a set packet of worksheets. We use creative and dynamic methods and materials to keep your little one engaged and enjoying their new adventure in learning. We keep parents informed and also take the time to communicate with the students’ teachers. We believe in fostering an integrated team environment to support each child and we work hard to make that happen.

We can always recommend skills to work on between sessions.

1:1 Tuition per child – Preschool to First Grade Customized Curriculum
Packages Half Hour/ Week One Hour/ Week
Tuition Per Month**$180$350

*55 minute sessions; **4 weeks/month

We strongly encourage a commitment of at least two sessions per week, especially for beginning readers. At such a young age, just half an hour a week is often not enough. Children need regular repetition to learn effectively and gain confidence. Meeting only once a week can lead to frustration/disinterest in the child if they need to repeat the same lesson over again. Group classes for beginning readers work well once a week because the sessions are twice as long and the group environment is more motivating for our youngest learners, enabling them to stay focused for a longer period of time.

However, we do recognize that busy schedules sometimes do not allow for meeting twice a week. On a case by case basis, the instructor may approve meeting once/week (always on a month to month trial basis).

We always encourage parents to work with us as a team and support your child’s learning at home.

Our instructors spend a lot of personal time customizing our curriculum and communicating with parents/teachers to meet each student’s personal needs. We do not just rely on a boxed curriculum or a set packet of worksheets. We use creative and dynamic methods and materials to keep your little one engaged and enjoying their new adventure in learning. There is an annual customized curriculum support fee of $150 per subject (reading or math). Fee is valid for the current school year from September to June and includes customized worksheets, our lending library, manipulatives, and other customized tools/games used to enhance your child’s learning experience during the sessions.  Students may seamlessly transition between levels as they progress. The summer customized curriculum support fee is $30.

We may recommend any additional materials/workbooks for your purchase based on your specific goals for your child.

Please contact the center to schedule your session times. 1:1 times are dependent on tutor availability and cannot be scheduled online.

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