Everything you need to know about Bookends@Home programs
What is included in a Bookends@Home program?
A 6-week, interactive, teacher-led program delivered online to your home, including:
A Bookends@Home instructor to lead each weekly class session. Bookends@Home instructors are highly experienced, licensed teachers.
An age-appropriate book that provides a narrative for the course theme. The course instructor will lead the students through reading activities as part of each class.
Individually-packaged project kits for each class project. Project kits include all of the materials that your child will need to complete the projects at home. (Please note that any projects that require small quantities of water, milk, or eggs will need to be provided from home. We're not able to ship perishables and most liquids).
Access to our online course resource center with vocabulary, instructional videos for projects, and links to additional learning resources related to our session theme.
My child is only 6. Can she still sign up for Bookends@Home?
Our current Bookends@Home programs are designed for 7 to 9 year-olds. Six year-olds who are reading on their own or attend the program with an older sibling or parent may still find the program fun and engaging.
Can my child participate in the program with a sibling?
Of course! Simply select the number of students when you place your order, and we'll send the appropriate sized course kit. Course kits for multiple students in one house come with one book and multiple sets of project materials. Each child after the first child at the same address receives a 20% discount on the standard per child price.
How many students in a Bookends@Home course?
Bookends@Home courses have a minimum of 6 students. Most courses do not exceed 20 students.
What happens if I miss a class? Does Bookends@Home have make-up classes?
Unfortunately, we're not able to provide make-up classes for students who aren't able to attend. However, students will be able to access many course videos, project instructions, and supplementary materials via our online resource center.
Can I cancel my Bookends@Home registration? Do I get a refund?
We're able to offer a 50% refund on all Bookends@Home registrations for cancellations that we receive before your course pack has shipped. Bookends@Home courses are not refundable after your course pack has shipped.
This sounds like a great program for my son's/daughter's scout troop. Can you deliver the program to a larger group at one location based on our meeting schedule?
Yes, we can provide the Bookends@Home program to schools and community organizations. Contact us to discuss your specific scheduling requirements.
