(see below for more info)

 

Here's what parents are saying about our Virtual Program:

 

"Miss Lisa’s Virtual class is amazing. She always brings some activities which are doable for little kids to older kids and interactive that keeps kiddos' attention. During this difficult time, this class has been saving my family. My little girl could stay connected with people other than her family which could develop her social skills."

 

"Miss Lisa's Virtual Fun Class helped give structure to our day after schools were closed due to Covid-19. The kids were excited about crafts and experiments we did together. Miss Lisa helped guide the parents at home about how to prepare and the kids enjoyed playing games together, singing, and listening to stories, all over Zoom. Miss Lisa has a big heart for the kids and helped each child participate and feel heard and allow them a chance to connect while we are apart." 

 

 "Miss Lisa's Virtual Fun class really was perfect for our stay-at-home summer. Every week Miss Lisa covered interesting and fun topics and tied it all together with games, songs, and crafts. My daughter had a great time learning about the ocean and different sea creatures, playing carnival games, camping (her favorite subject), and art. Miss Lisa’s enthusiasm for learning really showed in this."
