FORT LAUDERDALE, FL (March 26, 2020) – The Study Lounge, a new and unique collective space centered on education and socialization for kids and teens, is set to open in Summer 2020 and is located at the Delray Marketplace, at 9089 W. Atlantic Ave, Unit 112 in Delray Beach, FL.
“The Study Lounge is set to be a vibrant and welcoming environment that encourages positive socializing while creating a safe haven for students to gather, complete homework and receive tutoring assistance as needed,” said Holly Steamer, owner/co-founder of The Study Lounge.
“A combination of educational programming and social activities will be offered in a dynamic atmosphere to better students’ lives in multiple facets and serve as a pillar of the community, furthering education and child betterment,” continued Duke Steamer, owner/co-founder of The Study Lounge.
The new 4,000 square foot facility – designed by cutting-edge and globally renowned architect Danish Kurani – will offer a variety of study and social spaces, from small study rooms and classroom style settings, to comfy couches and communal seating to inspire engagement. There will also be a small café area that provides a variety of light meals, snacks and drinks – including a youth-friendly, self-service coffee station featuring decaf coffees on tap, variety of creamers, hot chocolate and specialty coffees – so kids can refuel.
“The lounge has different spaces so all kids can feel comfortable. There’s small study rooms where kids can work alone or with a group of friends. A snackbar and kitchen island that resembles home. A swerving wood countertop where kids can work while facing an indoor garden. Even a carpeted mountain for lounging with pillows and working while laying down, or even upside down, on the terrain,” Danish Kurani.
Roaming tutors are available to assist with homework and school projects, and several classes and one-on-one tutoring sessions are available to be scheduled to help with subject-specific matters, SAT test prep and more.
“Whatever method suits the child’s educational advancement best, is what we’ll strive to offer, with programs and teaching methods continually evolving,” said Holly Steamer. “As an educator myself with more than 20 years in the public and private education industry, I know the importance of these programs being adaptive to support confidence and learning. I think the social programs we offer are just as important in fostering these healthy habits in young teens.”
