In this classroom at Stone Soup Fresno, both kids and parents are learning. Teachers say the skills taught here can easily be used at home. Bee Vang and her little ones have been coming for years now.
"There are so many teaching moments for my child."
Bao Chang says no matter what age, parents can and should continue their child's education at home, especially in the summertime.
"Everything that they learned is fresh in their mind and if you keep engaging them that knowledge stays with them."
According to the partnership for children and youth, there are many ways parents can prevent so-called summer learning loss. Read to your children and encourage them to read. Turn off the TV, limit video game and computer use and get kids moving outside. You can also play fun math and word games that turn everyday activities into learning opportunities.
"Something I do with my daughter is ask her what do you see, every opportunity is a teaching experience for the parent and the child."
Experts say parents should know they can make a big difference in their child's education, no matter how much money they have. And at a time when one in four kids in Fresno County live in poverty, that message seems all the more important to get across.
"Parents can do a massive amount of stuff in the summer, that will, without spending money, assist their kids into not losing the stuff they gained all year during the school year."
