Welcome to The Wizard's Wardrobe

We're glad you're here...get to know us!


  • At The Wizard’s Wardrobe children share time with a special tutor just for them — to read, write, and explore the wonderful world of books. 


  • We explore the world through reading books, play word games to learn to read and build our vocabulary, write stories, solve STEM challenges, and much more. 


  • We become strong readers, successful at school and life-long learners!
