They call her Frany911. Which would have been an excellent name for this business that finds ways to get problem children to learn (without medication). But, she hit some legal issues. So Fran Rubio-Katz and her business partner Alyson Young opted for the Learning Loft, an aftercare program that finds ways to get even the toughest kids to educate themselves. Fran and Aly are both school teachers and parents, and have seen how parental involvement, physical fitness, and emotional wellness contribute to a child’s education.
So in addition to offering customized, specialized programs for children, the Learning Loft also teaches parents how to keep the education going at home. They offer tutoring not just for academic needs, but also for emotional and social ones. Part counseling center, part aftercare program, the Learning Loft is helping busy, stressed out parents raise better people, and for that they definitely deserve our support.
