Innovation Learning is the only before school, after school and summer camp provider developed and operated by teachers and former school administrators who also happen to be parents. Collectively, our team has decades of experience both in the classroom and as parents. We have worked to combine this know-how by providing a program that offers academic support and skill building while also incorporating fun and excitement. All our programs have been designed to improve the academic achievement of the children we work with. However, we also know that they can be our pickiest customers and if they are not having fun, we will never get the opportunity to truly make a difference. This knowledge and understanding is the foundation for all our programs.
Our founders have experience developing extended learning opportunities throughout the country. We have worked with close to 100 schools and day camps in over 15 states and Washington DC. However, our programs began with our own schools where we were teachers and principals. Because children are our most important customers, we highly value their opinion. If the program was not good enough for our own children then it would not be good enough for anybody else’s children.
Build strong relationships with our partner schools
A curriculum that focuses on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) in such a way that children have fun while they learn.
We use a Project Based Learning (PBL) approach using the Buck Institute’s Gold Standard.
Proven pedagogy that is tailored to the needs of each school we work with.
We will teach important 21st Century skills such as creativity, collaboration, communication and critical thinking as part of a program deliberately designed to provide opportunities to learn and practice these skills.
Caring adults who serve as coaches and facilitators of inquiry and reflection, in a teacher to child ratio that is much smaller than what they experience during the school day.
Access to academic support and homework assistance provided by licensed educators who check homework for accuracy and provide guidance when difficulty is encountered.
A connected learning partner who supports the mission and vision of the schools we work with.
A morning program that includes physical fitness (which has been proven to increase student energy levels and achievement during the first 3 hours of the school day).
Students will be better prepared for school the next day having completed their homework, engaged in fun STEM activities with their peers and having had the opportunity to burn off steam.
Our programs offer customizable learning schedules that allow schools and families to provide their children with hands-on opportunities that go far beyond a traditional “child care” option. Schools and parents now more than ever expect more from their extended day provider. In this age of academic accountability, schools and parents are both expected to successfully navigate a variety of challenges for producing results in the areas of social/emotional learning, academic achievement, health and wellness (just to name a few) an are no longer content with simple care. They both want a partner that can serve as a resource for helping with these things and Innovation Learning was created to do just that!
That’s why we created an ecosystem of extended learning programs that engage children, meet parents’ needs, and support schools’ goals to prepare children for the future. We are passionate about providing every family and school with options to extend learning beyond the classroom by offering a variety of experiences within the safe, secure, and convenient environment of their school building. To achieve this, we:
• Build strong relationships with our partner schools
• Tailor learning solutions to each school community and student
• Construct a variety of activities for every learning style
• Meet parents’ needs
• Create opportunities for all children, no matter their background or limitations
