The only comprehensive after school program in Russian language in Silicon Valley. At Rossinca, children will not only receive academic knowledge in Russian language, development of speaking skills and math, but will also have opportunities for social interaction. Children will be surrounded by care and attention of experienced teachers; they will find new friends and constructively spend their after school hours.
Our program begins at the end of your child’s school day. We partner with a company that provides transportation services to bring your child from his/her school to Rossinca Heritage School. Each group has a homeroom teacher. Each child is placed in classes of Russian language, Russian literature and math according to their level of language and math knowledge. This approach ensures the best learning results. Academic subjects taught during our after school program are not a review of what the child has already learned at school, it is completely new material; for example, math classes are taught using Russian curriculum which is more logic oriented and encourages active learning and is not a mere repetition and memorization of facts.
Upon arrival, the children are offered a hot lunch that is cooked daily using fresh, quality ingredients in our specially equipped kitchen with a healthy snack offered later in the day.
During breaks, the children can play with friends, rest, or read. We also offer help with their homework. Besides our regular after school classes (see below), we also offer a variety of extra-curricular activities.
