      Additional Services

      Our Homework Help program is delivered in small group tutoring sessions and aims at helping your child catch up with missed skills and lessons, as well as, helping them get a head start on their current assignments. Through personalized instruction and brain-based teaching methods, our staff is able to assist your child with difficult assignments.
      Our educational assessments can help if you want to define your child’s strengths or weaknesses, determine if your child has a learning difference, or simply determine if your child is performing above average. After a free initial consultation, our staff determines the extent of testing that needs to take place, schedules, and administers a norm-referenced assessment. Prices for educational assessments vary based on the need of the child and typically range from $50 to $150.
      Enroll your toddler in a safe, educational environment where children receive fun, age-appropriate instruction through games, art, and role playing. Toddler programs include early math concepts, music and movement, sensory and science, and social skills.
      Shop, go out to a nice dinner, see a movie and drop off your children (ages 3 and up) for a Parent’s Night Out!
