Safely support parents juggling work and home responsibilities.
WORKING PARENTS ARE PERFORMING A NEARLY IMPOSSIBLE BALANCING ACT EVERY DAY.
Working parents have always had to juggle their roles at the office and at home. With many homes and offices now merged, parents are experiencing unique challenges including taking on new responsibilities, especially as it relates to their children’s care and education.
Recent reports show that 26 percent of working parents with children under 10 are considering leaving the workforce and another 30 percent are considering downshifting their careers. Over the past year, working mothers in particular have been affected, with 4x as many women leaving the workforce than men in order to manage child-related responsibilities. Research confirms that children have fallen up to a year behind due to disruptive learning, leaving parents overwhelmed and desperate for educational resources that support learning recovery to help their kids get back on track.

What parents are saying
This program made a huge difference in helping our son catch up in reading. Having patient, capable teachers work with him gave me confidence and let me know I had one less thing “to do” on Hoot days. I love reading and do not relate well to my son’s learning differences and it meant a lot that my company was providing a service to help working parents like myself during such a chaotic time.
This has been the most successful benefit we’ve introduced to-date. We’re hearing consistently from our employees that they can’t believe how phenomenal the program has been and the fact that our company has provided Hoot to them at a time they’ve needed support for their families the most.
My 4.5 year old son has been out of school since March due to COVID. My older son taught himself to read when he was 3, so I have NO experience with how to teach a child to read. I had anticipated just leaving it up to his Kindergarten teacher next year. Last night I read a book with my 4.5 year old and he was able to read half the words in the book independently. Hoot has been a game changer for our family.

THE HOOT EXPERIENCE
- By having 1:1 attention with hand-selected teachers who love to teach literacy (it’s why kids stay so engaged), parents see a huge difference in their child’s reading level at the end of the program.
- Levelled books are carefully selected to meet your child’s interest and reading level, but challenging enough for teachable moments throughout each lesson.
- Guided reading lessons include personalized instruction and assessments. The goal is to help students learn to use reading strategies like context cues, letter and sound knowledge, and syntax or word structure, and to eventually apply these strategies on their own while becoming independent readers.
Kids who did hoot reading advanced reading skills 152% more than kids who did not do hoot reading.
