Learning support at Kids Gym Berkeley

Kids Gym Berkeley staff provide full supervision for children's scheduled online learning sessions. Trained counselors are adept at redirecting distracted kids and keeping them engaged in schoolwork. They will offer age-appropriate activities and worksheets to supplement what students are learning; provide homework help when kids get stuck; and supplement the remote school day with exciting hands-on STEM projects.
