Philosophy


Next Step Learning uses successful educational techniques to instruct children. We believe that many children do not learn well in traditional institutions and  that a child's strengths and natural abilities need to be the foundation of learning.  At Next Step Learning, your child is seen as an individual and natural strengths are identified and built upon.

Focus

Next Step Learning focuses on building confidence, motivation, focus and problem solving skills. Kira shares successful strategies with students so they can succeed on their own. Our friendly, warm, and enthusiastic teachers create a safe and supportive atmosphere for your child.
