Family Favorites: Parrish Learning Zone

While you may not think of enrolling your child into a tutoring center during the summer, it may be a wise choice. A phenomenon researchers and educators call “The Summer Slide” happens when children spend much of the summer disengaged from reading or academic work. This causes them to start the upcoming school year slightly behind grade level.

This sets children at a disadvantage since they will spend much of the school year attempting to catch up with their classmates, but as years progress, the educational gap widens in favor of students who read and expand their minds during summer.

In a post on her website, Nina Parrish, owner of Parrish Learning Zone writes, “All kids tend to forget some of what they’ve learned over the summer, resulting in losing on average 2.6 months of math skills. Some students may even lose reading and spelling skills depending on their activities throughout the summer.”

That’s why Parrish Learning Zone—a Fredericksburg Parent Family Favorite—exists. Their trained specialists and educators are equipped to help your child with overcome learning difficulties, strengthen reading skills, prepare your child for tests and more. This summer, the center is offering six opportunities for summer tutoring and workshops. You can find them all at parrishlearningzone.com/summer-tutoring.

If you’re concerned that your child may be affected by summer slump, or if you want to give your eager learner more opportunities to grow during the summer, Parrish Learning Zone is the place for you.
