No. Any mother, father, or bright, interested babysitter is qualified to handle preschool level material, thank you.
Here’s an email I just received from a 2009 Abacus Guide Preschoolers’ Prep Program client (details obscured to protect client’s confidentiality):
Just wanted to provide you with an update. <Child’s Name> got <top ERB score>. Your advice was key in setting up her ERB prep program with my wife and her babysitter. <Child> went up <huge number of points>.
Thanks again for all of your help.
To learn more or call 212-712-2228 9am-9pm EST. Limited enrollment available so reserve your child’s space. We are now working with parents of children who will take the ERB in 2010.
