Distance Learning Assistance Program (DLAP) BEGINS MONDAY AUGUST 17, 2020

Mission Statement

We are committed to serving our community. Our distance learning assistance program was created to assist parents with their child’s online learning.  This program will help working parents and essential workers by providing their children a safe, fun, and stimulating environment to learn and have distanced social interactions. We are extremely experienced in working with young children and capable of assisting with your child's online learning through their individual school's curriculum and instruction.


Goals:

• To provide a safe place for your children to distance learn.
• Run a schedule that not only allows children to attend class and work on their assignments, but to also be a kid and have fun!
• To support your children while acclimating to and navigating distance learning.
• Provide guidance when your child has questions about a subject.
• To help your child focus on the class material.
• Provide a reliable internet source for your child to complete online assignments.
• Allow time for arts and crafts, games, and activity breaks in the gym.
