Welcome to Learning Trek Academy
Learning Trek is a reading readiness program
for children ages 3 and older.
A child's education begins long before they enter Kindergarten.
Research shows that learning begins before birth,
and that the experiences and interactions children have
from their first days create an intellectual and emotional foundation
for how they will do in school.

What is Learning Trek Academy?
Learning Trek Academy is a privately run program that provides both math and reading readiness/early literacy instruction to children ages 3 and older.
Instruction is child-directed and includes lots of
FUN and PLAY!!
Fun and play are necessary, critical components for any preschool age curriculum.
All instruction takes place in a small group format.
Class sizes are kept to six students or less.
This is done in order to better address the individualized needs of each child.
Each week YOUR CHILD is given a special take home FUN packet with hands-on activities and games to reinforce the concepts and lessons learned.
Each week YOU are given a note that explains what we did in class, along with tips and suggestions for fun at home activities that you can do with your child to help them build a strong foundation for learning!
Understandably, parents can be at a loss as to how to assist their child with reading or math skills. At Learning Trek we are committed to giving you the information and tools necessary to help your child discover a love of Math and Reading. Of course- all of this is done through PLAY! A few extra minutes at home- while driving in the car- these are great times to play some fun and enriching games with your child. Let us show you how!
All Learning Trek Academy Reading instruction is based not only on the Developmentally Appropriate Practices as researched and outlined by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC), but also on the Best Practices as outlined by the International Reading Association (IRA).
Our Math Curriculum correlates with the relevant national curriculum standards for the Pre-K-2 student set by the National Council of Teachers of Math (NCTM). Our complete program curriculum also follows current Learning Goals and Standards set out by the state of Illinois.
Learning Trek Academy is a private, educational enrichment program created and taught by Denise Tenyer, a State of Illinois certified educator, who has more than 15 years experience teaching young children.
