So you can rest easy at night, knowing your child will learn to read, feel confident, and have fun… all while saving time in the comfort of your own home!
Even though the past few years have been filled with stress, we’re here to give your 3 to 5-year-old the best reading experience around with our online reading classes!
Hi! I'm Ms. Maureen, and I've always wanted to be a teacher for as long as I can remember. I've been teaching for eighteen years! Kindergarten Prep and Beyond used to offer preschool, after-school care for school-agers, camps, hourly "drop-in" childcare, and date nights (all with tons of field trips and an individualized approach). You can see that I love all things kids-related! One of the things I love to teach most is how to read. I put our reading program together when my oldest son was four. He was my guinea pig and all the materials and books I use were tried and tested by him! He is selective and an idealist, which means you're getting the most fun and engaging program available! The reading program was included in my after-school program and preschool.
Now, I get to teach YOUR child online! I can't wait!!
Being Taught By an Experienced and Loving Teacher!
Gaining Confidence In a Protected, Safe Environment!
There’s no need to be afraid for your family’s health when your child can attend online!
Receiving Individualized Curriculum to Be Prepared for Kindergarten!
Regardless of where your child is at, we will help them develop all of their phonics skills so they’re more than ready for kindergarten, and beyond!
Being Part of a Leveled Class for Maximum Individualized Attention!
Your child will never fall through the cracks or be left behind in our self-paced classes! When they're almost ready to level up, they will have a video link created just for them to practice on off-days, so they can go ahead and advance to the next level!
Get Excited to Practice Reading Skills Just About Every Day!
On Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays, they'll stay engaged with a learning video they'll watch with their classmates. I will be in a breakout room assessing one child at a time. I track their progress, and update their video list they will watch on Mondays and Fridays at home.
Have Fun and Stay Engaged While Learning!
Children love doing things in community. When they see online friends watching the same video too, it encourages their interest even more. When friends level up, it provides positive peer influence to encourage your child to practice a little more to join their friends. After class, children are put into a breakout room to socialize if they like. Parents are required to supervise if they would like their child to socialize in the breakout room. They can otherwise sign their child off of Zoom. Our teacher will spark your child’s interest in such a way that your child will develop an endless love of reading.
Thrive with a Consistent Schedule!
Our preschool will never shut down due to an outbreak, so your child will have the same routine every day.
Make Close Friends!
The best part about an online program is the chance to make friends worldwide, and your child’s buddies on Zoom will soon be their best friends!
“My daughter started Ms Maureen's class during the pandemic while she missed preschool and friends. Then when she went back to preschool [in person] we continued with her reading program. Ms Maureen's program was very well structured for teaching a young reader how to master words. My daughter is not afraid to sit down with a 200 page book having no pictures for days --- not sure how much she understands but I am proud of what she has achieved in being comfortable with words. I love that Ms Maureen has a customized lesson plan for each kid and in the process I have also learnt a little on how to be patient and how to make sure my daughter has understood a concept by following up at regular intervals.” – Dina T. (Yelp)
“My son joined after school activity 3 month ago, i can see how his education level and attitude has changed, mainly because of the owner of the place, because she is very kind person, and deals with him as a mom not a teacher or owner, she is very helpful, open minded and set up a friendly environment for the kids...” – Nermeen L. (Yelp)
“This review is long overdue! Maureen and her program have been our family's saving grace. Our son is on the Autism spectrum and from day one, she treated him like one of her own children. He has learned so much academically and socially from her program that I give her all the credit in the world for his progress in both areas…” – Carina S. (Yelp)
“My daughter came here for Kindergarten Prep and I was not disappointed. Ms.Maureen was a phenomenal teacher…My daughter grew so much academically, just over a few months. It was incredible to see her transformation! Thank you so much Ms.Maureen! If you all are looking for a good place to prepare for your child for Kindergarten. I highly recommend it.” – Adam M. (Yelp)
