Enrichment Programs

A series of engaging after-school and holiday programs for individual and small groups of children programs conducted by professionals at The Learning Umbrella. We call them Learning Curves.

 

An engaging activity is one that holds children's attention, awakens their imagination, and inspires them to want to learn more. Activities are not seen as ends in themselves, but as vehicles for creating values, building skills and solidifying relationships with peers and adults.

 

The various programs in Learning Curves focus on both academic and non-academic skills that are essential for school. Hence, these programs have a direct impact on how students fit-in, adapt and thrive in their school and classroom environments/routines, while also boosting their academic skills.

 

The Learning Curves programs:

  • Are taught in context through computerized and/or non-computerized programs;

  • Are suitable for children between the ages of 3 and 17 years;

  • Are conducted in age/skill-matched groups with a maximum teacher: student ratio of 1:4;

  • Are customized, fun and engaging.
