Workshop Education

Enrichment Classes for the Next Generation

Workshop Education offers Study Skills and Innovation enrichment classes each school day afternoon at eight school locations in the Bay Area. It is a new Uber model for enrichment classes: parents can request a class by 4:59 p.m. the business day before, giving them flexibility to manage schedules around sports and other enrichment offerings

 

We design our enrichment classes by asking college admission advisors, principals, and employers: what skills are missing that children need in order to be happy and successful? We hear things like emotional intelligence, ability to handle setbacks, ability to work successfully in teams and so forth. The answers lead to the curriculum for our 360 unique classes each year. We think of it as essential enrichment ~ education for life. 

 

Our first enrichment class is a Study Skills enrichment class. We teach a daily whole group study skill followed by individualized study skills applied to daily homework. Topics include executive functioning skills, stress management, organization, and effective studying techniques.

 

Our second enrichment class is an Innovation enrichment class. We pose a math, fine arts, engineering, or science challenge. Children have active project time, and then present their work to their peers for feedback. Children learn to create, persevere, and communicate successfully.

 

Parents are only billed for the classes their child attends. We charge $20 an hour for our enrichment classes with discounts for siblings etc.

 

We began offering our award winning enrichment classes in 2009 and now serve nine elementary and middle schools at eight locations in the Bay Area.  We have been voted a Bay Area Parent Favorite for four years in a row, and have been featured in  The New York Times,  The Daily JournalUniversity of Virginia education magazine, and Design Thinking in Schools

 

Workshop Education offers enrichment classes with flexible scheduling. We are not a licensed community care licensing after school program that provides care and supervision. In our role providing enrichment classes, we do not provide snacks, administer medicine, provide transportation, or pick up or drop off students that attend our program. Children are free to come and go to other enrichment classes, sports or to child care on campus. When you register, your child is not obligated to attend any of the Workshop Education Study Skills or Innovation enrichment classes unless you request to attend a class.
