The Education Department at AAWL is committed to serving our community and assisting with the current education and social needs of families.

When you leave your child with us, you can be sure there is supervision, safety and socialization throughout their day. We will remain in compliance with current health guidelines and regulations and follow a sanitization schedule each day on all common surfaces (tables, doorknobs, counter tops, light switches). There will be a strict maximum of 12 students and 2 instructors per classroom. Temperatures will be taken upon arrival each day for all staff and students.

Our classroom is 900 square feet and well ventilated with three ceiling fans, two opening windows and three doors. A maximum of two students will be seated at each table so that a minimum of six feet will be maintained by students during their online work.

Each of our instructors has a background and experience in education and will help your student with their online courses as needed. Students will eat snacks and lunch in a separate lunchroom, allowing time for socialization and a chance to “get their wiggles out”. During break times, students will have the opportunity to help our zookeeper with some light zookeeping duties, work on a craft, play games with others or help our shelter dogs by reading to them.

AAWL reserves the right to cancel our Guided Learning program if the minimum number of 5 registrations are not met 48 hours prior to the class. You will be notified via email if the program has been canceled.
