Grasshopper classes are unique because of our integrated life tools approach. We believe it’s never too early to learn about real life and the necessary skills to be successful. This applied approach, along with our professional teachers and curriculum, makes our classes fun and engaging for children. Grasshopper is the best King County after school program.
Our classes generally meet once per week for 1 or 1-1/2 hour sessions for 6-10 weeks. Classes are tailored to specific age groups and curriculum adjusted based on class dynamics. Class sizes range from 12-20 students providing optimal instruction and learning opportunities.
Our instructors are professional teachers extensively trained in using the Grasshopper curriculum. They are encouraging, caring and motivated individuals who believe that all children can achieve great success. Every instructor has passed a background safety check through the Washington State Patrol.
