ONE month to go!

Click the yellow butterfly below to see how far our new building has come.

We're almost ready to welcome you to our GRAND OPENING EVENTS.

Tour after Emily Hanford sessions on October 6 or join us at our 

Community Open House, 10 a.m. to 3p.m. on Saturday, October 7, 2023.

 

Please consider a gift to help sustain our new school that helps children with dyslexia learn and grow.

The changes are even more sweeping now as we near completion next month.

 

Once you enter our new building for the first time, words like "breathtaking, "stunning," and "wow" will probably come to mind.  From the beautiful stone and brick exterior to the interior curved walls and stone columns, it is impossible not to catch our vision for educating children, parents, and teachers, beginning next month on October 6th and 7th.  

 

The Frank Lloyd Wright inspired building reflects the importance of Phillips Fundamental Learning Center's vision, desire, and mission to transform  education for children with dyslexia in Kansas and beyond.

 

For those of you who have supported and encouraged us in this endeavor, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.  If you haven't joined our mission, please consider supporting our quest for All children reading...All children succeeding!  Children who are struggling to read throughout our great state need you!

1 in 5 People IS dyslexic

What does that mean for education?

Imagine going to school every day feeling sick. Imagine knowing something is wrong,

but not having the words to express what that is. Children with dyslexia are extremely bright and excel in many areas.  Oftentimes, these smart kids learn early on how to "get by" in school.  However, until they are taught to read the way their brains understand, they won't be as successful as they could be.  That's where we come in.

That's where we come in.

Schools are for learning.

Every student should have a safe place to learn and that teaches them in the way they need to be taught.  Phillips Fundamental Learning Center is determined to create a school that empowers dyslexic children to learn to read, write, and spell.

Through specialized training and individualized programming, Phillips Fundamental Learning Center is able to help students excel.  We meet students where they are and create a plan to get them where they need to be.

PFLC offers a school that finds a child's Super Powers and uses those strengths to help him learn to read, write, and spell.

More than anything, we must make a place for reading.

Optimal instruction for dyslexic students is 1:4 teacher to students ratio.

Our current space allows for us to serve up to 60 students at a time. Our new home will make it possible for us to double our impact and serve up to 120 Superheroes!
