Virtual Learning Assistance is your answer to "What am I going to do?"
Is your child's school going to virtual learning temporarily? Or is your child's school open, but you don't feel comfortable sending them with large groups, all day, every day of the week? Are you wondering how you're going to do all of this? Do you want to give your child, and yourself, a bit of a routine during this non-routine time? With FTKP's drop-in VLA, we offer affordable care, tutoring and e-learning assistance during this time!
Drop-in camps for Granger, South Bend, Mishawaka, and the surrounding areas!
If you are already a registered FTKP family, please call 574-204-2677 to schedule your child if you prefer to save a space.

**The School's Out Camp Passes are the most flexible during school days off. These are for children ages 5-12 and hours can be used any time Tu-Fri. Best of all, you can just DROP-IN! Please note: these hours are only good on school days off (spring, winter, fall, PTO days, etc.) and not good during the summer breaks (see Summer Camp Pass for those hours). All unused hours expire one year from purchase. If you'd like further hours or hours that don't expire, please see our package options. SIBLINGS CAN SHARE THE PASS!
No! You do NOT have to be a Member to have your child participate in VLA, however, you do have to be a Member to purchase our Pass and to get the best rates.
Reservations are not required, however highly recommended.
If all assignments get completed quickly during the time they are in our care, or if additional tutoring is needed outside of the VLA we will provide that additional support.
If they have to log on for a live session, please let us know the time and the program they will be utilizing. We will do what we can to have them logged on during that time frame. Please provide headphones for your child.
Quite possibly. We have reserved enough space for the VLA group with adequate space. We also will assign another VLA assistant when needed. Each child will have their own small cubicle that we have set up.
Please click here for our Covid-19 precautions. Please know, your child safety, along with our staff, has been, and continues to be, our TOP priority. Also note, we have set up cubicle walls to divide each child's area.
Outside laptops/Chromebooks ARE allowed, and even RECOMMENDED for ease of transition. We will provide you with a disinfectant wipe at drop-off for you to sanitize before we use.
We have tablets for use if needed, but please be ensure all your child's programs can be used on Fire tablets.
