Q: What age groups are right for SkillTrek?
Many families start as young as 5 years old. The content covers a wide range of developmental levels, up to about the mid-teen years.
Q: How much of a time commitment does Skill Trek require?
Reading the PDF and viewing the video will take about 15 minutes, but the real learning magic happens in the application.
The simple lessons can be completed in 30 minutes, including instruction and a little practice. Other lessons, due to the nature of the topic or the keen interest of your child may extend further. However, getting the hang of a new skill is not a one time event, and many families will practice a new skill for one or two weeks before moving to the next one.
Q: How much supervision is needed?
Many of the lessons can be learned and practiced independently, depending on reading level and maturity of the child.
Other lessons require supervision to ensure wise and safe practices are followed. Even if your student starts by reading the lesson and watching the video independently, lessons will be more fruitful with your involvement.
Your interest and attention communicates the value of these skills. Your students will appreciate your warm affirmation and encouragement as they develop new skills.
Q: How can I be sure the skills are right for my child’s developmental age?
SkillTrek is designed to accomodate a wide range of developmental levels. All memberships include access to our full curriculum. If you find the skills are too easy or too hard, it's easy to select other skills from our library.
