It depends on what subject you are needing help with. Math classes meet Mondays and Wednesdays from 4:30 - 5:30 pm and 5:30 -6:30 pm. Reading classes meet Tuesdays and Thursdays from 4:30 - 5:30 pm and 5:30 - 6:30 pm.
How can my child enroll in the program?
Students must first be assessed to see what skills if any, they need help in. Reading students are assessed by Michelle Peeler and math students are assessed by Veronica Simon.
Where are Learning Labs located?
We are located at the Carondelet Rec Complex, Emerson YMCA and Bayer YMCA.
How much does this program cost?
This program is free to all students and families regardless if they are a Y member or not.
Do classes only run during the school year?
No, Learning Lab classes run all year long.
How will I know my child is on grade level?
Quarterly assessments are done to see how skills have improved over the course of the session. Parents are updated by the instructors after these assessments about their child’s improvement. When a child is on grade level they will graduate out of the program.
Can my school/organization host the Learning Labs program?
Our program is available to community organizations that show a need. Please contact Veronica Simon, firstname.lastname@example.org or 314-421-8889 for more information.
