School’s Cool is a short, life-changing program that has a tremendous impact on school readiness for children. There are skills that are critical to success in kindergarten (such as language, math, psychological, self-help and social skills). Children who attend a School’s Cool program increase those skills, on average, by over 50 weeks during this six-week program! Boards of education have seen that those gains are sustainable in higher grades, resulting in higher EDI and grade 3 testing scores. School’s Cool gives children self-confidence and puts them on a trajectory for success!
School’s Cool has a 72 hour play-based curriculum, skill building activities, and parent involvement strategies. Learn about our Developmental Checklist which shows exactly what skills each child has upon entering the program, provides a road map for building the specific skills needed for school, and measures the increases when the child finishes the program. Understand the philosophy which underpins everything we do. Find out how easy it is to get training online that allows you to run an effective School’s Cool program – or to put those skills you’ve learned into practice with your own children. Read more …
