Avoid summer learning loss with K5 Learning
Kids deserve a break from the classroom, but not from learning. Countless research shows that students who stop all studying during the summer suffer a significant loss in knowledge and academic skills.
We encourage parents establish a regular summer study routine for their kids. 30 minutes a day will avoid learning loss and place your kids well ahead of the curve in September. Equally important, it reinforces to your children the importance of learning – it’s not something done just at school.
