What families say

Parents of Recess kids

"When I’m home to see her come out of her room after recess - she’s got pep and becomes more talkative. Last week, she let slip the words 'I like building things.'"

Melanie, Mom, Canada

"Jack “can’t” miss Recess. This has been life changing."

January, Mom, U.S.

Theo is seriously “addicted” :-) to Recess so in case of summer break there would be trouble. I am happy you operate through the summer. Thank you.

Mirka, Mom, Czech Republic

Crystelle absolutely loves the class, thank you SO much 🙂

Toby feels like he is an important helper to the Recess guides. His friends wave to him as soon as he logs in.

S

Sadie, Mom, U.S.

Let me just say that I have never seen Liam so enthused about a class! He woke up Monday morning and informed there were only 2 days left until class.

J

Julz, Mom, U.S.

He was really excited and grateful for the class time. I’m glad that you’ll be opening more. We’d love to grow with the course offerings.

K

Krystle, California

I think my self care at the moment is finding recess.

Anonymous, Mom

During the first part of cohort I looked and she was actually smiling. When I asked later how it went she said she really liked it (high praise!).

Lisa, Mom, Europe

I love when he sees the value in skills. These activities have helped tremendously in Math; he doesn’t complain about it anymore.

He was so stoked on his cohort this week the energy was contagious. He was so empowered and proud of it!

I want to thank you all at Recess for being so welcoming and encouraging to Sarran. His confidence has really grown over the past few months.

Kizzy, Mom

Recess has helped me connect with Nate in so many more ways and I am very thankful for all the hard work you guys do for my kids 💕.

M

Melody, Mom, Canada

I can’t begin to tell you how meaningful this is. It means the world to me to know that she feels so SEEN by the entire Recess community. You’re changing lives for these kids.

E

Emily, Mom, U.S.

It’s really important for Ben to have mentors like you and an environment like Recess. We really appreciate everything you’re doing.

Jack brings a computer on every vacation, he “can’t” miss Recess. This has been life changing.
