Prepare Your Child to Enter School
Enroll to our free in-home tutoring program
Are you a low-income family? Do you live in San Mateo County, California? Do you have a child who is two-and-a-half to three-and-a-half years old? Would you like your child to enter school ready to perform well?
Learning Home Volunteers can help. We offer a free tutoring program where a volunteer comes to your house for an hour each week. The child plays with learning toys. You and the volunteer work on those skills which help the child get ready for school.
Research shows there are three easy things you can do to help your child excel at school: (1) talk with your child using meaningful conversation, (2) read to your child and (3) play with your child. Our program is based on these proven methods. You and the volunteer teacher will be trained on how to use these methods with your child.
Your family will be provided with a teaching kit and a core set of children’s books which you will add to throughout the two year program. The learning toys will be checked out from our lending library of toys based on your child’s interests.
