With the school year starting out virtually, we want you to know we are open and ready to support with our new Prep Lab program designed specifically for elementary school students to bridge potential learning gaps between virtual and in class instruction. Our teachers have been trained to support the local school district’s distance learning so children stay on course with their studies. With our brightwheel mobile app, parents can receive real-time photos and updates about their child's day, sent straight to their mobile phone or email! We’re also excited to share that coming soon, our school will offer live video streaming for our families through WatchMeGrow!
