The Foundations Developmental Level is for children who are not yet confident, independent readers. This group is appropriate for all students who are beginning to have an interest in basic academics, who are ready to learn how to read and write, and who are mature enough to attend on their own. (Younger students would benefit from attending the Parenting Foundations group with their parent.) Academic skills are learned as the group time is also focused on developing character, empathy, and heart. Most students learn how to read and write in a year or two attending this program. Games and tools are often sent home to be practiced when a child needs more time with a principle. Parents are encouraged to attend with their children whenever they can. We recognize that the best place for very young children is with their parents, therefore his group has a customizable schedule in order to ensure that children are not spending too much time away from home or doing their most important work, play.

Parent registers for this group with one or two children who they would like support in teaching these skills at home. This is also an opportunity to build parenting skills and culture in the home to encourage future success. A mentor in this group gives direction and practice for parents to teach their child their foundational skills that will lead to reading and writing. Registration is usually for one semester at a time, for 1 to 4 hours per week.
Children who are ready to learn how to read and write, and who are mature enough to attend on their own may join this group. This program is between 4 to 12 hours per week.
