frequently asked questions

Why offer after school programs that focus on intensive skill development?

  • We have found that the online escape room program is an excellent approach for dramatically improving children's core competency skills such as communication, critical and creative thinking and collaborative problem solving. Each term we break down a new topic into small drills, just like when children learn how to swim. Students practice the skills as they escape.

How do I form a team at my school?

  • Gathering a group of students from your child's school ensures that your child has other students to collaborate with at school.

  • Speak with parents at your school who may have children who are interested in participating on a team. Any Questions? Have parents contact Elizabeth at info@escaperooms4kids.com with their questions.

  • As students gain confidence in skills such as collaborative communication, decision making and the integration of creative and critical thinking, they will greatly enjoy collaborating on school projects with other students who are also developing these skills.

  • Have your child's class escape a School Escape Day session to see if there are students who enjoy escaping.
