  • Groups are composed of up to 12 children that meet together with the same teachers; forming a class on a virtual platform!

  • Led by experienced teaching staff from the A.S. Children’s Center

  • Teacher’s engage children by alternating Developmentally Appropriate active and passive activities

Parents will be provided with weekly Home Study- Guided Learning Plans to support collaborative learning through fun activities families can do with materials they most likely have at home.

Tips to help your child succeed in Zoom sessions:

  • Parent support during zoom sessions

  • Prompt arrival to sessions

  • Complete any eating prior to session so your child can be safe, speak, and socialize

  • Provide a set & safe space for your child to participate where they can sit, use a table surface, and have room to get up and move.

  • Please dress for “school”

  • Provide basic school supplies that you already have at home in a set & accessible space for your child to use during sessions

Daily activities will follow a routine that includes:

  • Personal Greetings & Warm-ups
