[Kindegarten Pod] "My daughter has had the pleasure of being a kindergarten hero under Mrs. Maraya and Mrs. Kelly’s guidance and has flourished so much in the process. She grew in her confidence and made such wonderful connections with children from near and far. Our family members and friends are constantly in awe of how knowledgeable she is and that is all thanks to her amazing experience with Home CEO Academy. "

Sheila E.

[Kindegarten Pod] "As a teacher myself I wanted a program that didn’t just focus on academics but social emotional growth as well. Both of my girls love learning and discovering new things each week. This has been beyond what I could have asked for.”
