Being a parent is arguably one of the toughest jobs there is. We want what’s best for our children and strive to put their needs first. But parents also need to balance their own growth and development. Read the letter below we received from a mom who is also going to college full time.
“Being a stay-at-home mom and full-time online college student myself with ASU, I started to worry about finding a school for my son as his kindergarten year approached because times are different. When my own Success Coach told me about ASU Prep Digital, I did not have a doubt in their learning platform because it was in the name itself—they were trained for online learning for KIDS.
It was flexible, advanced lessons, yet they were taught in the simplest and most fun ways, and had the most engaging staff such as their teacher, specials teachers, clubs teachers, and their own Learning Success Coach.
While there is no in-person interaction, there is still a lot of social learning that is introduced. I have noticed how the teachers call on the students, making sure everyone takes a turn. The success coach hosts homeroom every week, and our coach hosts story time every week with each grade. Additional activities online are open for students to participate in with other kids like fun, live walk-through (kid-friendly & safe) experiments, before or after live-lesson clubs, and small groups where 4-5 kids work with the teacher in mini-lessons. Relationships definitely have grown with the students, teachers, parents, and coaches throughout the year.
It really has been a remarkable year where ASUPD has set the standard for us in our kids’ education. We have learned to adapt, set new routines, and take on a lot of patience with the learning process. It got easier as the year went by where my 6-year-old no longer needed me to direct him with the software and his work.
Online learning sounds intimidating, especially for children, but ASU Prep Digital has proven itself to be the simplest, most educational, and wholesome schooling that the future is ready for.”
