Small Groups in the Studio

We offer enrichment classes for children ages 3 to 5. The early childhood classes are specially designed to feel fun and engaging for small children yet are full of opportunities to develop critical pre-reading and foundational skills.

Kickstart for Kindergarten: PreK Enrichment

AGES: 4 – 5 YRS. | GROUP SIZE: 6 | PRICING: $35 P/60 MIN. CLASS or $50 P/90 MIN. CLASS

Our preK friends are invited to join us for a motivating class to prepare them for kindergarten. This class will adjust to meet the needs of the various students enrolled. Some children will be working on identifying letter names and some will begin to sound out words. All children will have ample opportunities to be exposed to print, play with sound, elevate their oral language, and improve their fine motor skills. Our methods are engaging and developmentally appropriate. Learning is a delight and we will send these learners off to kindergarten eager for more.

Little Learners: Ages 3 to 4

AGES: 3 – 4 YRS. | GROUP SIZE: 6 | PRICING: $35 P/60 MIN. CLASS

Our preschoolers are invited to join us for learning sessions that go beyond a traditional read aloud.

Frequently Asked Questions

ABOUT OUR SMALL GROUPS IN THE STUDIO

It depends! Most preschools in the area are play-based and focus on socialization, early learning concepts and themes, and practice routines. This is very important for your child. Yet, it is also important that your child have specific experiences to develop their pre-reading skills. Groups at the studio are led by a reading specialist who knows the continuum of skills related to literacy. In order to be successful in kindergarten children need to develop specific skills related to print and sound in early childhood.

Nope. Toddlers and preschoolers learn through play, conversation, and read alouds. We accomplish our academic goals through those means. Learning at the studio should feel delightful!

No way! We believe in play-based learning, too. In fact, our early childhood sessions involve much play and creativity. Sensory bins, imaginary play, paint, finger puppets, etc. We are very creative in how we accomplish our educational objectives.

Dyslexia affects nearly 20% of our population, regardless of socioeconomic status, gender, and how much parents read to their children. We can identify the early signs of dyslexia by age four. If we do see the early signs, we can intervene right away and work on closing the gap before it even opens. Whether you have dyslexia in your family or not, it is reassuring to know that you are giving your child the very best chance at succeeding with learning to read when the time comes.

It depends. Some preK children are older because of their birthdays and are on a different end of the developmental continuum. It might be appropriate for them to begin reading in our Kickstart program. Yet the goal is not to push preschoolers to read before they are ready. Rather, the goal is to provide children with critical pre-reading skills related to print and sound. These skills lay the foundation for a deep understanding of the structure of the English language so learning to read and spell happens with greater ease.

Allow for open ended play, converse with them everyday beyond giving them directives, and read often. Read to them, let them “read” to you, and let them see you reading by yourself. Follow our blog and Instagram for more tips.
