    Due to precautions required because of COVID-19 and limited classes available, for the Summer 2021 semester we are limiting enrollment to existing families. We hope to return to a full schedule for the Fall session, 
    and look forward to welcoming new families at that time

    Three weeks will be field trips: June 11, July 9, and August 6.

    LOGYC, Learning Opportunities for Gifted Youth, is a place where children can learn among other gifted children and have the opportunity to work at ability level versus being age restricted. At LOGYC, children can feel accepted for who they are, without having to hide their strengths or weaknesses. They don't need to underachieve to conform or feel isolated in feeling "not normal." They receive support for oversensitivities and integrating into a group learning environment. But please keep in mind that this is a co-op, not a school, and parents are expected to fully contribute/participate.

    This unique community is a safe space to be gifted and to connect with like-minded peers, for students and parents alike.

    Registering for the co-op allows you to register for our many fabulous classes - check them out! 

    Many of our classes have flexible age ranges, as gifted kids often have asynchronistic development. If you have any questions about class details, whether a class would be appropriate for your kid[s], or the coop in general, please email us at

    • September 01, 2021
    • 9:00 AM - 11:00 AM (CDT)
    • Veteran's Memorial Park, Westmont

    The Westmont Daytime Book Group will wrap up its summer series of books with:

    Lifelines: An Inspirational Journey from Profound Darkness to Radiant Light

    by Melissa Bernstein

    Bring your favorite morning brew and join us for a lively discussion of the book, parenting, current events, . . . Read the book in depth, skim it, or take a look at the book cover on Amazon before your run out the door! The objective is to use the book to frame the discussion with other parents who face the same kinds of (parenting) challenges you do! Weather permitting, we will meet IN PERSON! Head to the center of the park near to the playground equipment. Kids welcome to come to play while we meet.

    In October we will return to our focus on parenting gifted.
