We chose the Upper West Side when we first opened Wise Wonder because this neighborhood is as family-friendly as you can get. Central Park and Riverside Park ensure you don’t need a backyard, and the American Museum of Natural History and Lincoln Center provide plenty of culture. Wise Wonder is conveniently located near the 81st Street subway station via the B or C train and the 79th Street station via the 1 train. We offer our reading enrichment classes during the school year and a fun, educational summer program - learn more!
Please note - Schedule is updated at the start of each month. We offer rolling enrollment unless the class is full. Please contact us to see if we can accommodate any scheduling conflicts.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is Wise Wonder Enrichment?
Wise Wonder is a unique literacy program for children ages 6 months - 10 years of age. We teach children the literacy skills they need to feel confident to read and understand every book they pick off the shelf. Since 2012, we’ve served thousands of children to do just that; so that they can feel confident in the classroom and be inspired to keep learning!
How many children will be in my child's enrichment class?
Wise Wonder 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.
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?
Wise Wonder 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!
