Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT AGE IS THIS FOR?
Typically, ages 3-5 years old. Harmony’s virtual program is designed to meet the needs of each individual preschooler. How did we accomplish this? We have two curriculum tracks! Our Early Preschool virtual curriculum is for children who are two years away from entering kindergarten. Our Preschool virtual curriculum is for children one year away from kindergarten. Just as a three-year-old is vastly different from a five-year-old, their circle times should be as well.
BUT, many ages enjoy watching our circle times! Children as old as second grade can be captivated by our science experiments, games, and more.
We also invite daycare centers to purchase one account with us to share our circle times with your children. Virtual teachers can also purchase an account to learn some tips for teaching in their own online classrooms.
WHO IS THIS FOR?
Our virtual curriculum has been enjoyed by:
- Families who are not ready to send their preschooler to a traditional on-site location
- Homeschooling families
- Families who live large distances from on-site schools
- Daycares and on-site preschool classrooms
- Parents looking for a supplemental curriculum or enrichment curriculum for their preschooler
- Parents looking for a way to bond with their child through a shared learning experience
WHAT MAKES OUR VIRTUAL CURRICULUM DIFFERENT THAN OTHERS?
Most virtual curriculums do not include an option for live interaction with a real teacher. Our curriculum provides online learning centers where our teachers can communicate with your child and with you! We also have the option to participate in weekly Zoom class calls. These are so fun! We play games, take turns sharing ideas, and make lots of good memories with other preschool friends. Additionally, our circle times build on each other as the year progresses. For example, during week two, we learn about Letter L. Then during week three, we learn about Letter F, but ALSO include review activities for Letter L.
WHERE CAN I FIND THE VIRTUAL CIRCLE TIMES?
During the registration process, you will create a password protected login so that you can access our secure membership website.
DO I HAVE TO USE A DESKTOP COMPUTER?
No! Cell phones and tablets work as well.
WHEN DO I WATCH THE CIRCLE TIMES?
Anytime you want! The circle time videos and additional curriculum for the week is posted on Monday mornings. You pick a time that works for your schedule. And the videos and curriculum are there for you to repeat as many times as you would like.
WHAT IS SEESAW?
Seesaw is an educational platform used by teachers all over the world. Your family will create an account in our private Seesaw classroom. Virtual learning activities will be placed in your preschooler’s account. The activities correlate with our circle times. Your preschooler can complete the activities and submit them back to Harmony Learning. Our teachers will review your preschooler’s work and provide audio feedback to your preschooler. Your preschooler can complete activities as many times as they would like.
HOW LONG WILL I HAVE ACCESS TO THE VIRTUAL CURRICULUM?
If you learn with us for all nine months of the school year, you will have access to the curriculum you purchased until July of 2022! If you decide that you need to cancel your subscription to our curriculum (we understand; life can be unpredictable), your access will end the day after the curriculum is provided for which you already paid.
CAN I SHARE THE CIRCLE TIMES WITH MY FRIENDS?
We have worked hard to provide this quality virtual curriculum and appreciate you understanding that your account is for your one family. Day cares may only share their account with their day care. Teachers may only use our curriculum and videos with their one class.
WHAT TIME ARE THE ZOOM CLASS CALLS?
Our class zoom calls are Thursday afternoons at 1:00 pm. Each class call is approximately 30 minutes. Enrollment sizes may require additional class call times. All class calls will be in the early afternoon on Thursdays.
WHAT DOES IT COST?
Prices vary between our Early Preschool and Preschool curriculums. We also offer different packages at different price ranges. You can find out prices here: https://www.harmonylearning.com/virtual-registration/
WHAT IF I NEED TO CANCEL AND NOT PARTICIPATE FOR THE FULL 9 MONTHS?
Just send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. It’s that simple! We will provide you with the remaining curriculum that you have already paid for and end your subscription when your next payment is due.
