Given our current COVID-19 crisis, we have the unforseen circumstances of having to pause all of our preschool and enrichment classes.
Because Yak Academy, Redondo Beach believes in providing fun and engaging language learning opportunities for our students, we have decided to continue with our our virtual Yak 2 Home Connection until our students are able to return to their schools. Every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 10:30AM-11:00AM students and families (Yak student or not) are welcome to join us in a virtual learning experience.
As a small business, we are trying to find ways to continue supporting our staff, while keeping up with the day to day expenses of our facility, so that we are ready to open as soon as we are given the "OK".
We ask that you support us by donating ANY amount, so that we can continue creating, planning, and supporting students using this virtual learning experience. We ask that you consider donating, and sharing our donation link to anyone who you think would be interested.
Thank you! ¡Gracias! Xièxiè! Merci beaucoup!
