“I have three kids. Two are in third grade and my daughter is a preschooler in the Earhart Thrive by Five program.
I would recommend the program to any parent. It is very good. My daughter has learned so many things. She is way advanced for her age. And she loves it! She is the first one to get up in the morning. It could be a Saturday or Sunday and she will say, ‘Mom, are you ready?! Let’s go to school!’
She really loves school. Her writing has improved and her language too. She is bilingual. She used to only speak Spanish and now more English.
I volunteer everyday and I have learned a lot. The techniques they use in the classroom, I use the same ones at home. I keep the kids’ nap time the same on the weekends so they stay in a good routine. It also helps me with my older children, who have ADHD. I have learned ways to teach and entertain them. I like finding other ways to keep them calm so I don’t have to give them medication.
Head Start is more than a daycare, it is teaching children what they need to know before they go to kindergarten.”
