Homeschool Enrichment

Pencil & Dirt is a Homeschool Enrichment program in Fountain Inn, SC.  We keep our program small to make sure all our little learners can get the attention they need.  Our program is designed to bring out creativity, curiosity, and movement.  We follow a curriculum that includes nature based learning mixed with hands on exploration and creativity.  We also include age appropriate reading, writing, math, science and social studies according to South Carolina standards.  Our program is currently designed for

ages 5-8.


Our piano group classes are once per week for 40 minutes.  Children will learn piano theory, notes, and how to play simple songs through our use of games and fun activities.  This is a great way to introduce piano to your child.  We have 2 age groups for this class, ages 4-6 and ages 7-11.


Our reading group class is designed for children who can already identify letters and sounds but need help connecting letters and start reading words and short books.  We use fun games and hands on learning to help make reading fun for kids. 


Our private piano lessons are for ages 4-14.  We are currently accepting beginner piano students.  These lessons are one on one and include fun games and activities to help kids learn to play piano.   Lessons are 30 minutes long and students are encouraged to practice the assignments given each week
