Frequently Asked Questions – FAQ
How long is the each class?
Each group class session is 45 minutes every day. For the first 30 minutes, we will follow the pattern of Circle Time in a classroom where we talk about the calendar, weather, and seasons, followed by topics for that day. Most days, we end the session with music and movement activities. We cover Language Arts, Math, and Social Science with different themes each week. The last 15 minutes will cover Spanish or Art which are an integral part of our curriculum. On Fridays, we focus on a STEAM activity.
How many kids will be there in a group class?
Our online class sizes are limited to 5 so that each child gets individual attention in order to make their learning as fun and interactive as possible.
Do you offer Enrichment Classes?
We offer virtual enrichment classes along with our regular virtual preschool. It is a consolidated 5-day program that focuses on phonics, math, and writing. Please check our virtual enrichment programs page for more details
What is the fee structure/tuition?
Our monthly tuition for a group class is $250 (4 weeks).
Monthly tuition for Enrichment classes is $250 (4 weeks).
Is there a sibling discount?
Yes, siblings get a discount of 10% on the tuition.
Do I get a free trial class?
We do not offer a free trial class. Based on our experience, one class is generally not sufficient for a child to get accustomed to or enjoy an online class. We offer a paid trial week (for 5 consecutive classes/workdays) before you commit for the long term.
Enrichment evaluation is free.
What if I miss a day during my trial week?
That’s okay! You can attend the next class.
What if my child does not want to participate?
Children take time, consistency, and support to get comfortable with virtual learning. A trial week will help them to interact and socialize with other peers their age on-screen. Just like in the classroom, we advise parents to be supportive and consistent with introducing their child to their new preschool experience. We try our best to support them and go over their new routine repeatedly!
What happens after my trial week?
If you and your child like the virtual experience, you can choose to switch to the monthly schedule and continue with the classes.
Can I cancel?
Yes, you may cancel anytime! But we require a week’s notice at a minimum.
Can I get a refund?
We do not offer refunds, but you may cancel at any time with a week’s notice. We want to ensure you always receive the value you are paying for!
How do I login to join class?
We use Zoom for our virtual classes. We will email you the link when you sign up for a session.
Do I need materials for class?
While most of our curriculum and learning aids are delivered online, we also promote a hands-on learning experience. Our lesson plans are published through our childcare app “Brightwheel”. Any materials needed for the upcoming week will be published through the app. Most materials we use are common items that you are likely to have in your house such as markers, crayons, paper, scissors, tape, glue etc. Teachers will specify any special materials needed for their projects at least a week before the class.
Do you close on holidays?
Yes. We are a real preschool with real preschool teachers and follow the regular ISD holiday schedule. We want to ensure you receive the value you are paying for, therefore we prorate the tuition when we are closed during longer breaks (e.g. Thanksgiving break, Winter Break, and Spring Break).
When is the last day of school?
May 20th, 2022 is the last day of virtual school for this academic year. We will be offering a number of virtual summer camps including Kindergarten Boot Camp in June and July! Stay tuned!
Does my child need a computer to attend?
We recommend a touchscreen device (an iPad or a tablet) to attend classes on Zoom. Although you may also use the Zoom app on your phone, preschoolers find it difficult to engage with a live teacher and friends on a small phone-sized screen.
I have never used Zoom, what do I do?
Download the Zoom app on your tablet, laptop, or computer. Zoom will walk you through creating a free account with your email. From there, you can just click on the link we provide and enter the password once you login.
Are there classroom rules I should know about?
Our online classes are modeled around in-person preschool classrooms. Once you join, your teacher will welcome you and share online classroom protocols such as muting / unmuting your mic when called upon, raising your hand, being kind to your friends, waiting your turn, and so on.
Do I need to help my child during class?
Our goal is to encourage the children to be independent and to participate in the learning activities on their own. We may, however, sometimes solicit the help of a parent or an older sibling to assist younger children until they get used to the online format – for example, in assisting the child to mute/unmute their microphone, turning their camera, help in showing their projects on screen etc.
What age does my child need to be?
Our online students are between 2 and 5 years of age. We have different sessions and curriculum based on their age. Our teachers are skilled and are able to adapt to their their questions, handle discussions, conduct live hands-on projects, and provide directions to keep each child engaged depending on their age and their ability.
Is my child really going to get the preschool experience?
Yes! Your child will have a REAL and consistent preschool teacher engaging in live sessions every day. Children will socialize with their peers, practice raising their hands, answering questions, waiting their turn, building their fine motor skills, and improve their creativity, confidence, and problem-solving skills through STEAM projects, cooking, music, and Spanish lessons.
