Sunday Friends believes that children will be receptive to school learning if they believe that they have the capability to learn and if they have had the experience that learning is fun!
Most of the children who come to Sunday Friends have had numerous interruptions in their academic life due to the transience of their families. They have "gaps" in their education that lead them to self-concepts of being under-achievers. In Sunday Friends, we turn that around.
The joy and success of academics are interwoven into all that we do:
Families tell us:Our Program Evaluation demonstrates how successful Sunday Friends is with Promoting Academics.
"This program is very educational and teaches us parents. Some of us parents have never gone to a classroom to learn. We have never had a teacher. I love to go to a class and learn."
"Sunday Friends teaches the parents so we can be ready to teach our kids."
