What Do I Need?

I am sure you are wondering what constitutes a good online kindergarten curriculum. The curriculum should include core skills such as colors, counting, recognizing print, beginning phonics, word families, shapes and the like. Look for visual and auditory prompts in the lessons that guide the student, thus making the lessons easy for young learners to follow. The lessons and activities should be very engaging, fun, and highly educational for young children. Animated and interactive lessons are an easy and fun way to catch and keep the student’s attention. Check lesson demos and instructions to evaluate what level of participation you, the learning coach, will be involved each day.

Before committing to an online company, review their policies on price and payment procedures, refunds, attendance, record keeping, whether or not they require a contract, advancing to the next grade level if your child excels and moves quickly, discounts for multiple children (if this applies to your situation), procedures for canceling your account... Keep all emails you receive from the company (about the questions you may have) in a folder on your computer, Print hard copies if you like.
