At more than 900 learning centers across the world, Sylvan offers kids a leg up through personalized, one-on-one programs prescribed by an in-depth skills assessment. Students build on past lessons to learn progressively, and sessions may hone in on different disciplines, granting kids the confidence to interpret literature and the rhetorical skills needed to negotiate a later bedtime. The positive mindset of personable, invested instructors helps to inspire kids to greater academic feats, as does a prize program that rewards hard work with CDs and gift cards.
Huntington Learning Centers help students of all ages build the skills, confidence and motivation to attain better grades. Whether your child is struggling in school or simply seeking a more enriching academic experience, our individual, personalized programs will make a difference. Our ACT/SAT prep is all one-to-one.
Smart Sprouts fosters creativity and imagination with academically focused activities and research-based practices, while maintaining a clean, playful environment. The experienced and educated staff members undergo rigorous training in childcare before earning their crowns as play-care leaders. Children ages 1–6 can take a break from solitary sessions of cartoon watching and finger-painting to spend up to four hours romping, learning, and amiably debating teddy-bear ethics with their peers in Smart Sprouts' green-hued, toy-laden play space. Never more than 14 tykes fill the bright, vibrant room, and two play-care leaders team up with groups of four children or more. During play-care sessions, wee ones can expand their social maturity with other children and amuse themselves with an array of books, stuffed toys, blocks, and invisible dragons.
The Scrap Room stocks hundreds of craft and scrapbooking materials that help creatively preserve memories. Scrappers can lay their foundation with 12"x12" patterned paper ($0.69–$1.50/sheet) or cardstock ($0.75/sheet), and scrawl calligraphic narrations or fashion criticisms with a roster of pens and markers ($1.99–$9.25). Myriad stickers and embellishments ($1.49–$7.99), as well as stamps ($1.99–$23.99) help to garnish flashbacks, such as cartoon reindeer that bolster Christmas photos or cover up Santa’s beard slip. More advanced crafters can manipulate paper shape and texture with Tim Holtz or Sizzix dies and embossing folders ($11.99–$29.99) that help solidify the ephemeral past.
