What Parents Are Saying

  • My son started attending Jump!'s Summer camp when he was 2.5. I was nervous at first because he had never been cared for by anyone other than family. What I soon realized is that Jump! becomes an extension of your family. They were and still are absolutely amazing. The staff is incredible. They truly do care about your child and do anything in their power to make them feel welcomed, loved, and safe so that they don't even realize that they are in an academic environment.

    Erica Fresia
  • My preschooler has had a wonderful year at Jump in the Mandarin immersion class. She has greatly improved her Mandarin and acquired all the skills to be kindergarten ready. The teachers are all very nurturing and do a great job of tailoring their teaching to the individual child.
