We help every child discover the adventure of books.

When kids enjoy reading, it improves all of their education

At Wise Wonder Enrichment, we believe that every child deserves to discover the wonder and joy that books can hold. That’s why we teach children the literacy skills they need to feel confident to read and understand every book they pick off the shelf.

Whether your child loves to read and wants more, or is frustrated every time they open a book, our calm and cozy space and expert teachers will help them soak up every wondrous word. You’ll feel confident that your child is building a foundation for their education – and loving every minute of the adventure!

The Wise Wonder Approach

Cozy Environment

Our magical, cozy space will transport you out of the city and into a world of books. Your child will feel inspired to dive into every book on our shelves.

Small Class Sizes

Our programming is uniquely designed to track your child individually, so they stay engaged and on track at their own pace, not on a set schedule.

Individual Benchmarking

Each of our class sizes are limited so that every child gets the individualized attention they deserve, tailored to what they need.

More than Reading

We use reading, art, and music to teach literacy and foster creativity for every child, so that they’re always excited for the next lesson – whatever it may be!

Happy hoots from parents and kids that love Wise Wonder

“My son started BN at 18 months old and now he's going into kindergarten. He's learned so much and I feel that Rina and her teachers have set him up for success.”

– Joanne S.


We've sent our older son to Wise Wonder since he was 21 months old. It was one of his first experiences with separation and we couldn’t have asked for a better more gentler way to introduce it. Wise Wonder brought him closer to the wonderful world of books and stories and with each week his confidence in reading, writing and storytelling grew. He always looks forward to his weekly classes at Wise Wonder and was so excited to bring his younger brother to class with him. He has been in Wise Wonder for close to 3 years now and our younger son has recently started there too."

"Wise Wonder is the most magical place for kids to learn and grow! Not only do children learn important reading and writing skills, Wise Wonder also teaches kids how to be kind and courteous in the classroom. It is the perfect place for students of all ages!"

Meet Rina Collins, Wise Wonder Founder

I believe reading should be fun.

As an elementary school teacher, I saw the gaps in learning that kids were working through. With today’s class sizes and curriculum, it was difficult for many kids to keep up – or give them extra challenges if they were already excelling. When kids aren’t given the space to learn to love reading, it feels like a chore. But I knew it didn’t have to be this way.

I was determined to create a space where reading would be fun so that kids are set up for success for the rest of their education.

That’s why we opened Wise Wonder in 2012. As a Reading Specialist with my Masters in Literacy, I developed the Wise Wonder curriculum that has changed the lives of our students – and made reading fun for everyone.
