Education Starts At Home
- One key to raising a well-rounded child is to establish a solid support system at home so that they grow up satisfied with their achievements and ambitions.
- The goal as a parent is to help your child feel competent and confident; to help them develop a sense of passion and purpose. To encourage their interests, curiosity, creativity and natural gifts.
- As parents we want to help our kids succeed in learning the things that they may struggle with. Everyone needs a helping hand from time to time.
- As parents we want to help our kids mature emotionally and live healthy, balanced lives. The end goal as a parent is to develop well-rounded kids who become well-adjusted adults.
- We can assist you with this for as little as $0.25 a day.

Our Children Deserve Every Opportunity To Reach Their Full Potential
Worksheets Meeting Standardized Test Standards
Math and vocabulary skills in a child’s early years help them to connect ideas, develop logical and abstract thinking, to question, analyze and understand the world. This knowledge is basic to a child’s success in school and life. These skills are the building blocks to learn the rules of the “reasoning game.” Young children show an impressive ability to think inventively. Through problem-posing and problem-solving kids learn to express their inventiveness. They build connections between mathematics, language, and creativity — the essence of learning to think.
Fun, Engaging Science / STEM Projects
Discovery is the most effective way to learn the skills and concepts necessary to become an adult. Through experimenting we learn the ability to express ideas and present ideas in a clear and logical order and to use language that is appropriate for the audience and occasion. Science experiments instill the abilities to observe, measure/use numbers, communicate, infer and predict, analyze, use deductive reasoning and evaluation, use processes, or skills in new situations and generate ideas. Science experiments teach kids to think and use critical thinking skills to find solutions.
Reading comprehension is one of the most complex skills to learn. It is also indisputably the most important. Reading comprehension sets the foundation for success in other subject areas and develops a lifelong habit of reading for pleasure. This foundation must be entrenched. Many factors go into the development of reading comprehension such as an extensive vocabulary, asking questions, making connections and visualization. When kids are robotic with reading they have trouble understanding the meaning of the words and phrasing or understanding the theme or moral of the story.
Social Skills – Manners and Hygiene Videos & eBooks
Kids need to develop good manners in order to succeed in life. Socail skills coupled with behaving appropriately can help kids succeed in reaching their goals – be it better grades; getting a job and a promotion; or getting invited to social events. If we truly want to give our kids every opportunity to succeed, we must stress the importance of acceptable, desirable behavior that will help them get and keep jobs, friends, and family. It’s not just our children’s future that is affected by manners; it’s a parent’s reputation and ultimately the civility of the culture and society in which we live.
Magic is the pairing of science and math with observation. Magic tricks assist in learning the ability to develop insight and problem solving skills. They boost confidence, self-discipline, and critical thinking. Magic tricks help develop fine and gross motor skills as well as concentration, following simple and complex directions, task follow-through and socialization/interpersonal skills as well as concentration and communication skills. The idea of asking permission before performing a trick helps develop impulse control. Magic tricks nurture natural curiosity.
Executive Function Development
Executive function is self-regulation skills that require three types of brain function: working memory, mental flexibility and self-control. Self-control enables us to set priorities and resist impulsive actions. These functions are highly interrelated, and the successful application requires them to operate in coordination. Children aren’t born with these skills; they are born with the potential to develop them. Providing the support that children need to build these skills at home and in other settings they experience regularly is one of society and parents most important tasks.
Fun, Active Play Games and Exercise Videos
We learn best and retain the most information when we engage our senses. Play and exercise allows children to be in complete control of their actions and experiences, which boosts their confidence in decision-making and inspires their eagerness to learn and experiment. Play teaches kids about cooperation and collaboration. As kids work together or side-by-side, they learn to understand someone else’s viewpoint. For kids, exercise means playing and being physically active and they are better able to handle physical and emotional challenges.
Sensory experiences provide opportunities where the process is more important than the product; how children use materials is considerably more important than what they make with them. Arts and Crafts allow us to think creatively in order to solve problems or engage in imaginary play that helps us express creativity and build self-esteem. Arts and crafts teach bilateral coordination, fine motor skills and self-regulation. They are self-esteem boosters and most of all a fun, bonding time. An added benefit of Arts and Crafts is your child’s increase in curiosity and creativity.
Nutrition and Recipes
Cooking can help kids learn and practice some basic math concepts and build language skills. The experience of creating meals can help build their self-confidence and lay the foundation for healthy eating habits. Kids are notoriously picky eaters, and bringing them into the kitchen to cook can help get them to open up to new tastes. Working in the kitchen provides opportunities to gain a sense of accomplishment and foster an interest in food and cooking that will last for life. As children learn to cook, they are learning a powerful tool to take control of their own health.
