One of the key strategies for helping children succeed in school is by making tutors available every day to help them finish their homework correctly. The U.S. Department of Education states that, “From third through sixth grades, small amounts of homework, gradually increased each year, may support improved school achievement. In seventh grade and beyond, students who complete more homework score better on standardized tests and earn better grades, on average, than do students who less homework.”
Based on child development statistics across the country, we have developed five focus areas that we help each child accomplish at the Learning Center.
Children who attend the Learning Center are provided a daily devotional and encouraged to develop a personal relationship with God. Children are also encouraged to attend regular worship services.
Every individual is God’s creation and a valuable member of our community. We help children to build strong character and recognize their dignity and leadership.
Homework Reading and Math
Completing homework is the first step toward success in school. We teach children the importance of successfully completing their homework not only to improve performance in school, but to teach them responsibility in daily life.
Reading is the number one skill used every day. We help students develop strong reading skills, grow their confidence, and use their imagination to explore the world through books.
Math skills are also critical to student success. We provide our students tutoring in basic math skills, including money management, to build a strong foundation for the skills they need to succeed in school, in their career, and in life.
Health & Fitness
Good nutrition and overall health are important in establishing a strong foundation for a child’s future. Children who attend the Learning Center are fed a hot, well balanced meal and participate in physical fitness activities every day.
Gardening is one way to teach God’s glory through creation. This hands-on activity offers the opportunity to reap the rewards of hard work and a good work ethnic, and also teaches children the importance of giving back and sharing with others in their community
