Trusted, experienced educators, committed to the academic success of every child.
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, give them the opportunity to express themselves in a safe and nurturing environment, they would develop a 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 offer the best of today’s teaching practices, combining academic vigor with social and emotional support.
