Long-Format Classes (3+ hrs)

“My child… had a great time.  He was fully engaged and almost entirely independent. 
Whenever we checked in on him- it seemed the teachers were engaging and we constantly heard him sharing ideas, thoughts, and fun facts! This was a very clever and thoughtful week of programming. And reasonably economical- for which we are grateful.”

“It was a great day! [My son] really enjoyed it, we didn’t see him at all from 1pm – 3pm (score!!) …. he was totally engaged!”

“From the parent’s point of view, I thought all of the instructors had a ton of patience and are great with kids. I really appreciated that even though [my daughter] had to step away for her remote school class and missed a large part of her sock puppet class, Hope took the time afterwards to walk [her] through the puppet activity so she wouldn’t feel like she missed out.
From [my daughter’s] point of view, she enjoyed all of it. When I asked her if she had a favorite activity or least favorite she said she liked it all.”

“From our perspective, today was AMAZING. Our son was completely engaged, and back to his old self. The programming brought what school ‘remote learning’ has been sorely lacking.
Here’s what he/we thought went well:
– Small group of kids (allowed for interaction between the kids, and they weren’t talking over each other)
– Variety of activities (great that robot building was the foundation, with morning and afternoon session)
– Just enough time allotted to each activity (not too long), with short breaks in between
– Instructors were all terrific (we have to give a special shout out to Veronica…!)
– Kids could work independently (and great that you encouraged minimal parental intervention)
– Everything was extremely organized
Thanks so much for all the hard work on putting this week together!!!!”

Online After School Classes

“During this bizarre and challenging time your program has been the most successful at being thoughtful, creative and pivoting to keep the kids learning and enjoying. Your communication has been excellent too.”

“I would like to add that your program is one of the best classes over zoom we have experienced. Thank you and to the entire BRF team. Look forward to hearing about Summer..”

“The class on Thursday was great. I am SO impressed with how quickly you guys rallied and pulled virtual after school off. Bravo!!”

“I wanted to say thank you to you and your team for creating such an amazing class online (and also as it was in person)….. The one hour zoom class he now participates in is one bright spot in this troubling time. I very much appreciate all of the thought you have put into making the classes work and for all the communication you have provided.”

“It’s wonderful that you’ve been able to keep this going and [my daughter] loves it.”

“The teacher was amazing and loving with my son. He was able to build the robot with minimal help from me following the teacher’s directions. My son really like his robot and he is showing it to family members online. Thanks.”

“You are all doing an amazing job. Thank you so much for such incredible energy and versatility. It’s humbling. Thank you.”

“You guys have been SUPERIOR to any of our other after school programs. The word should be out that you stepped it up so much in this moment and are giving the kids an outlet [to] build their independence and confidence. We are currently working with Hope and she is a GEM.”
