A Complete List of Grasshopper Services and Programs
IN-HOME 1:1 SESSIONS
! OUR BEST - SELLER !
Bring our education to your home with personal lessons from Miss Jennifer, our In-Home Specialist. Each session is customized to the needs, interests and skillset of the child and the set-up of your home. Your child will receive a 1:1 lesson focused on educational well-being while uncovering his/her natural joy of learning. The parent will receive consultation on academic benchmarks and ways to translate each child’s behaviors/needs along with ideas on how to set up your home to make it conducive to your child’s education and independence. We provide all materials, lesson plans and inspiration. This is not a tutoring program. It is a customized education service based upon the goals, schedule and budget of each family and includes our unique Grasshopper Academics Sight Word Curriculum. This option is open to all families, including those not enrolled in our school. Does your child attend a play-based preschool and need a little educational instruction? Is your child in elementary and in need of extra help or additional challenge? This customized approach is perfect for you. Invite a friend to join our sessions and split the rate between 2 or 3 families. This option makes for a budget-friendly experience!
