HOMEWORK HELP AND TUTORING (YEP, YOU’RE OFF THE HOOK ON HOMEWORK DUTY!)

We take pride in being the only before and after school program that offers one on one tutoring for daily school homework. Our before and after school teachers are trained at practicing Dibels, supervising math minutes and answering various mathematic problem solving questions. In addition, we also time every student’s assigned nightly reading work.

CURB SIDE PICKUP: LET US TAKE SOME STRESS OFF YOUR LONG TO DO LIST

Many of our parents worry about dealing with prolonged daily drop off and pick-up at local elementary schools. In fact, due to open enrollment, no charter schools in Chandler or Gilbert have bus services at all – so parents are left struggling to find reliable transportation for their children. Our curbside bus service gives our parents the advantage of beating the morning rush with our super easy a.m. and p.m. bus service.

HELP TRANSITION TO ELEMENTARY:

Elementary schools are intimidating to young students – especially our new kindergarten grads! Being dropped off in the morning or picked up in the afternoon with their friends takes a huge weight off their little shoulders. Older students in the program become role models and buddies who look after our little ones throughout the school year and help them with getting around and simplifying the order of their individual school’s curbside pick up which can become overwhelming for newbies to elementary schools.

Our transportation bus leaves the center at 8am and depending on which elementary school your child is transported to, the drop off at the school’s curbside is between 8:05am-8:15am every morning. In the afternoon, our buses arrive well ahead of time and prepare for pick up as soon as the bell rings.

Kids get a snack when they arrive at our center and begin homework by 4pm. Depending on the school and the work involved, homework time usually lasts between 30-60 minutes. If the child does not have any homework assigned, the tutors provide reading assignments that last no longer than 30 minutes.

Following the completion of work, fun and creative stations are assigned while free play is offered after 5pm.

Every year, our schedule of drop offs and pick-ups varies according to demand. Currently for the school year of 2018-9, we transport to:

  • Jane Dee Hull Elementary
  • Fulton Elementary
  • CTA Independence campus (Chandler Traditional Academy)

Schools that we have served through the years: Basha Elementary, Jacobsen Elementary, Carlson Elementary, Ryan Elementary and Navarette Elementary.

We offer a Fall, Spring and Summer Break Camp for all of our elementary students. This is an additional service and not covered by the BEFORE/AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAM. Spaces are extremely limited, and for this reason release spaces to our before and after school aged students before accepting students from the general public.

Our transportation vans are licensed for 13 passengers in total.

We have two transportation vans and only insured and bonded facility directors have access to the vans.

We do have a classroom unique to the before and after school program. Children have their own hooks for their backpacks and assigned seating. Interaction with the preschool children is limited only to extended care hours.

Ms. Stacy | Director

Premier Learning Academy has played a huge part of my life since 2010 as I have seen our amazing preschool grow into one of the best in our State! I have been so proud to be a part of its wonderful journey as a mother and volunteer from 2010 to 2012, teacher from 2012 to 2014 and now director from 2014 to current day. I am a mother to a very spirited 10-year-old boy named George who I love hanging out with in my spare time. In addition to gaming, I am nuts about animals – my husband and I have fostered 3 rescue dogs! Though I have a degree in Art History, Early Education has been a passion of mine. Growing with our family of amazing educators at Premier Learning Academy has never been work but a second home surrounded by little ones we inspire to make the world a better place!

I have been at PLA for just under 2 years and it has been amazing! I’ve worked with so many different ages it’s unbelievable. Each age brings me so much joy, being able to put a smile on their faces and receiving so many hugs makes everything worth it. My hobbies include drawing,

painting and photography. I spend most of my free time helping my family with anything they need. Family always comes first. Working at PLA has helped me grow as person and a teacher/tutor. I am looking forward to continuing working with these wonderful kids
