School Notes

  • Promising Start Learning Academy is the PERFECT SOLUTION for:

  • Working Parents - Before and after school care is available
  • Advanced students - Keep them moving forward rather than "coasting" through public school and developing problem behaviors or habits
  • Students who "just miss" the public kindergarten cut-off for attendance
  • Children who have strong interests and/or areas of accelerated/decelerated learning - Promising Start individualizes instruction to cater to each child's strengths and weaknesses.
  • Parents who desire their child's first experience of formal schooling to be in a safe and nurturing environment - Promising Start's unique home-based classroom is the ideal first school for young children. Instead of florescent lights, hard tile floors and a noisy, disruptive environment, Promising Start offers a calm and cozy classroom on a dedicated floor of a private home.
  • Parents and children who think learning should be fun! Students at Promising Start help determine the subject matter of their educational studies. Hands-on investigations are a staple of the curriculum. Students have the freedom of pursuing their interests as teachers incorporate the basics of a solid education into favorite topics and explorations.
