works best for you
& we'll get you set up!
Hola! I'm Senora Kristen Smith, and for as long as I can remember, I've always wanted to be a teacher. I even got a Bachelors degree in Spanish Literature so I could teach High School Spanish. I also received my Masters Degree in Organizational Leadership to teach at the College level. I am currently a Professor Online for a Bible College and love it. I found my true calling, as a mother and I embraced my role of teaching our son Joshua. I started a language training business teaching Spanish to all ages 20 years ago and I have loved teaching in my community! I love being a stay at home mom and wanted to be with my son to teach him both English and Spanish. This is a prayer answered to not just teach him but now, I get to teach YOUR child online! I can't wait!!
The one and only that develops ALL of your child's skills
(social, emotional, cognitive, language, and physical) for
ages 3-5 year olds.
For 25 minutes each class day, your child will have a blast talking to, hanging out, and playing with me as well as 10 other preschool friends.
Our online preschool program is taught by an actual preschool teacher with real-life preschool friends! It's the next best thing to local preschool!
Think online preschool equals "educational" video games? Not here my friend! We loathe (with a passion) those mind-numbing and ADHD-behavior-inducing "educational" video games.
At our preschool, we use the FUNDAMENTALS Preschool Curriculum, an activity-based curriculum with developmentally appropriate activities that will prepare your child for kindergarten in as little as
1 hour each day!
There's no need for you to supplement curriculum at home!
Each class is 45 minutes in live virtual interaction, with a real live preschool teacher. Due to high demand, our classes fill up ridiculously fast. So register today!!!!
Class is FULL!!!!
Do parents have to be present?
No. You do not need to be present during class, but we would love to have you engage in your child's learning experience if you can. You do need to log your child into the online classroom at least 5 minutes prior to the start of each class, but then you can either stay or do other things you need to do, just make sure to teach them how to unmute themselves if you will be in away.
Do parents have to print things off or help outside of preschool class?
No. Our curriculum is designed to be hands-on and self-contained within our 2-hour preschool class each week so you don't have to supplement additional curriculum during the day.
Do parents have to buy art materials?
No. There are no supplies required. We do have a parent portal for you to access resources to engage your child outside of class.
Are there other costs besides my monthly tuition?
Yes. There is a one-time, non-refundable $100 registration fee prior to starting the to reserve your spot in our class for the school year. We will waive the fee if you refer another parent to our preschool in the first 7 days of your free trial.
Is this an online "learning" video game?
No. There are NO video games in our online preschool program... just real, social interaction between an amazing preschool teacher (that's ME!) and a small class of amazing preschool friends all around the world!
What's the difference between your online preschool and Hooked on Phonics or ABC Mouse?
The American Academy of Pediatrics suggests that preschoolers have no more than 1 hour of screen time. Would you prefer your child used that hour on high-intensity video games or on face-to-face social interactions to prepare your child in EVERY WAY to develop socially, emotionally, physically, cognitively, and linguistically? I believe preschool is a hands-on experience, and playing video games to "learn" isn't how we do things at our online preschool.
What if my child is shy, active, loud, crazy, etc.?
After 20 years of teaching in person and online, I think I've seen just about every type of child there is. I'm excited to teach your child and help him or her have a wonderful experience!
What requirements do I need to participate?
You'll need high speed internet and a laptop/desktop computer. You can use an iPad/tablet or a phone but we don't recommend it because it's too hard to see everyone's faces and actually socialize with them.
I'm not technical. Will you show me how to login?
Yes. We've put together amazing video trainings that will walk you through how to login in our parent portal. It's easy!
What platform do we use for class?
We use Zoom, a free platform to our parents. The links we use to join our online classroom are exclusive to our preschool families so no one else can access the online classroom and password protected. Plus, our online classroom is monitored by a teacher (that's ME!) at all times when in use.
I miss the friends I had with my child's local preschool. Can I connect with preschool parents in my child's preschool class?
Absolutely! After signing up, you'll join our private parent Facebook group of amazing preschool families from around the world. We're super supportive and excited to have you join us!
Please register soon to ensure your child receives a spot!
