We're the teachers that founded Rye Reads and the Rye Book Club for Kids! We also developed the Learning League Homework Program for the Rye Library. We started with the belief that children’s learning should be affordable, age appropriate, structured and organized. If we could tap into a child’s natural curiosity and give them the opportunity to express themselves in a safe, structured and nurturing environment, they would develop the love of reading and an appreciation for all learning. We were right! To date, our programs have helped many children in Rye and beyond become better readers, better students and better community members. 

 

We pride ourselves on offering a variety of academic programs for individuals and small groups. We offer the best of today’s teaching practices, combining academic vigor with social and emotional support.
