Early Hoots

Early Childhood Reading for 30-40 Months

What to expect at Early Hoots

Early Hoots classes build on developing the wonder of words and magic of reading at age 3, as children learn the skills needed as they embark on their academic path. Many of our Early Hoots have already started preschool, and our goal is to introduce and hone the skills necessary for them to succeed.

These 90-minute classes meet once a week and coincide with the school year (we offer rolling admissions and pro-rated fees).

What We Teach

Foster a Love of Reading

Each class is planned around a weekly theme such as zoo animals or life on the farm, and incorporates related books, music and art projects. We continue to foster your child’s love of reading at age 3 and provide parents with a curated book list that will be used throughout the year.

Begin Handwriting

After assessing your child’s handwriting ability, we focus on different skills each week. Children progress from being able to trace their name independently to being able to write their name independently. The “letter of the week” is used to teach children where to begin writing each letter and how to identify upper and lowercase letters.

Enjoy Storytime

We know that children love having stories read to them. At this level we stop to discuss pictures in the story and talk about their favorite parts of the story in order to build attention to detail, oral comprehension and visual concepts.

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!"

Foster a love of learning for a lifetime.

Everything in class is geared towards honing the skills necessary for preschool and kindergarten readiness, as well as gifted and talented entrance exams. We focus on higher-level thinking exercises, vocabulary words, pre-reading abilities, grip activities and more. We’re also building your child’s confidence and letting them know that they’re capable of these new academic challenges.

By the end of the year, our Early Hoots have mastered the overall concepts and have their a-ha moment – which makes for an easy transition to Pre Hoots classes. Our unique curriculum is created by our founder, Rina Collins, to meet the needs and learning styles of each child at this stage of their development. And our warm, inviting space instills a sense of magic in children from the moment they walk through our doors.
