We know child care and preschool owners are always looking for ways to add value to their programs. Looking for ways to stand out and be different from their competitors, to be unique, to offer MORE. After all, the more appealing that you are to prospective families, the more enrollments you’ll get and the higher your retention rates will soar.
That’s why we wanted to bring you this amazing resource on our blog today. So many of the owners we work with have been trying to put together virtual learning opportunities for their families since the whole COVID-19 crisis began in March of 2020.
And it’s been a little bit cumbersome for many of you:
- Teachers aren’t always comfortable being on camera.
- There are technical aspects that you need to learn and solve.
- You have to come up with the content, practice, and then record or go live.
- And that’s all on top of the regular, normal, day-to-day duties you and each of your staff members have going on.
Five Reasons to Add Techie Kids Club Enrichment Classes to Your Preschool
Byline: Dr. Corinne Muller
Enrichment programs are a proven way for preschools to appeal to new parents and engage current families. Plus, kids and teachers love them! However, even with their many benefits, some schools are struggling with including enrichment classes in their program due to the ongoing pandemic. In fact, some schools and enrichment providers have paused their onsite programs.
To address this growing need, Techie Kids Club has created a brand-new way to offer enrichment classes that’s safe, affordable and easy to add to your preschool program. I’m Dr. Corinne Muller, and I worked with our team of educators to design coding classes to be used in preschool classrooms.
Techie Kids Club’s School Membership gives you instant, unlimited access to On Demand video classes hosted by a virtual teacher. Ideal for kids 4-8 years old, each 30-minute themed class teaches skills such as sequencing, problem-solving and creativity.
