The foundation of the Stone Soup program is getting homework done. Doing assignments after class prepares children to make progress in class the next day. It reinforces what is learned. Doing homework after school helps build a child’s self-confidence and mastery of new information and new skills.
Many Stone Soup parents work and commute long hours and may not have the time to take their children to the variety of cultural and recreational facilities that California offers. During the summer, the Stone Soup children are taken on educational field trips which are mixed with outings to parks and playgrounds for a change of scenery and new adventures.
