Reading isn’t a chore – it’s an adventure!

But too often, kids aren’t excited about finding the wonder of words. 

Reading is the foundation for all education, and we want to help spark their imagination for learning like never before. Our weekly enrichment courses for ages 18 months to 12 years will get your child excited, confident, and curious to read every book they pick off the shelf.

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

- Tara F.

"We've sent our older son to Book Nook 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. Book Nook 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 Book Nook and was so excited to bring his younger brother to class with him. He has been in Book Nook for close to 3 years now and our younger son has recently started there too. We absolutely love Book Nook and would highly recommend it to every parent who wants to give their kids a headstart in many academic areas and help provide a strong foundation for the work they will do in school."

- Preeti S.

“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 B.

Frequently Asked Questions

How many children will be in my child's enrichment class?

Book Nook classes have always been small group, to ensure our students are receiving individualized attention from the teacher.  Our student to teacher ratio is 6:1.  The maximum number of students in our tiered learning classes is six students.  Our Big Hoots will be a ratio of 3:1.

Can I try out a class?

Sure!  We'd love for you to experience a class with us before signing up.  You can choose a free, 45 minute trial or a full trial for a $40 fee which will be later applied to your tuition, should you choose to enroll.  Please email the studio to set up the trial class.

What if I miss a class?

We believe that consistency is key when it comes to learning; however, we understand that your child may need to miss a class from time to time. We will accommodate one makeup per semester for illness only.  This will be scheduled at the end of the semester.  If you miss a class for another reason, we are happy to send home your child's folder so they can complete it at home!

Do you offer weekend classes?

Book Nook classes meet Monday-Friday between 9am and 6pm.  We do not offer weekend classes, but our studios are open for events, storytimes and birthday parties on the weekends!  Check out our social media to see the upcoming events!

Are teachers certified?

All of our teachers have experience working in early childhood teaching.  We go through an extensive hiring process to bring the best teachers to Book Nook!  All teachers complete training in our Book Nook curriculum and complete ongoing professional development and training throughout the year.
