Radiance Learning has been great for my daughter as it's been helping appease her curiosity, be it with arts/crafts, robotics, scratch or math problems/puzzles. We have checked out several other after school programs and this has been our favorite. She has a lot of fun, so much that she doesn't want to be picked up early. The teachers really know the kids well, truly care about them and give them a lot of one to one attention which plays an important role in the kids development. They focus on explaining concepts and motivate kids in different ways. Overall, it is a great, well-structured after school program with positive environment encouraging kids to have fun with STEM. We highly recommend it to anyone interested in enrichment programs for their kids.
