Classes for Kids Provide Learning Edge

Local kid classes provide an antidote to the dreaded academic summer slide!

The school year is over and your child couldn’t be more excited. He’s had a rough go and struggled to keep up. Don’t let the summer pass him by without any help. Instead, sign him up for a program that addresses problems in reading, comprehension, math, study skills and more. Some are even one-on-one or small groups, which is less distracting than a full class setting. Here’s a round-up of places to get the additional help your child needs to prevent the summer slide and give him the edge he needs to stay on track … or even get ahead!
