SUMMER ACCELERATED INTENSIVE LEARNING PROGRAM

Dear Parents,
Namaskar.

The summer vacations are around the corner and we all are looking forward to them. For most of us it’s a chance to relax and work on issues which need inputs. For us too at Orkids, the summer is a golden opportunity to work with children in an intensive manner without worrying about their school syllabus, their homework or even the uncompleted class work.

Keeping in mind that in some children the gap between their actual performance and expected performance is large and can only be lessened by a sustained intensive approach, we are opening registrations for the summer program SAIL which would give the child the opportunity to learn at a time wherein no other pressure of studies is present. The child learns at a faster rate and has ample opportunities to apply what he/she has learnt.

The remedial intervention plan would include all areas which are a concern for the child. This would also include 1 session of speech language/ occupational therapy per week if required. Besides the actual areas of input in the form of remediation, the class syllabus will also be looked into. These areas of input could be reading, spelling, writing, comprehension, creative expression, memory enhancement and/or study skills.

The routine fee per class at Orkids Clinics from 1st April 2018 shall be Rs. 845 per hour. However, SAIL program fee is a 35% discounted fee for May & June only.

Monthly cost structure for SAIL Program –

Sessions Duration Amount
Thrice a week [ 3 hrs each] 36 hrs 19800
Four times a week [ 3 hrs each] 48 hrs 26,400
Five times a week [ 3 hrs each] 60 hrs 33,000
Six times a week [ 3 hrs each] 72 hrs 39,600

Kindly note that the cheque should be issued in favor of ‘Orkids Education Systems Pvt. Ltd’ before the start of the program. No classes shall be adjusted against regular Orkids classes. After the summer program is over, the child shall go back to his earlier time schedule at Orkids.
