Child with project

Jo encourages us to be ourselves. She works hard to let us have a good time in learning. She teaches us how to manage our time and use our resources.

Margaret Horn

The Little Explorers program helped prepare both my children for elementary school. My daughter was reading prior to starting Kindergarten and my son was exposed to educational concepts that prepared him to begin school. In addition to the educational benefits of the program, it also helped my children to develop their social skills as they were learning with a group of other children. They came to think of their fellow students and especially Josephine as an extended family.

My son had some issues with math concepts.  Jo has given him extra work that has helped him reinforce his math skills, and has been a great help to him when completing homework and school projects in her After School program, which begins at the kindergarten level. Her assistance and encouragement has helped my son, now 9, learn good study skills.

Jo is a little “out of the box.” She teaches them anything and everything, bringing in an all-inclusive point of view to such topics as holidays, religion, and politics.

JoJo is the greatest teacher I’ve ever met in my whole life. She works very hard with me and we both love Harry Potter, Star Wars, dinosaurs and being creative.
