Dalam bimbingan belajar ini anak-anak diberikan pengetahuan dasar untuk persiapan masuk sekolah dasar, yaitu mereka diajari menulis, membaca, berhitung, dan menggambar. Ini adalah kali pertama Program Bimbingan belajar diadakan untuk anak-anak pemulung di Cirendeu.

This tutoring activity is needed because of so many child from XSProject community who do not follow PAUD/ECD, so they had no enough source of knowledge to through life. Because the tests entering elementary school (Grade 1) in Indonesia now requires the children are able to read, write and recognize numbers. The Pre-School Class that is in Cirendeu every Tuesday and Thursday a volunteer only teach crafts, personality, and more to play around.

Bimbingan belajar ini diperlukan karena banyak anak-anak dari komunitas Cirendeu ini yang tidak mengikuti PAUD/ECD (early childhood education), sehingga mereka belum mempunyai bekal yang cukup.

Adapun Pre-School Class yang ada di Cirendeu setiap hari selasa dan kamis sukarelawan mengajarkan kerajinan tangan, kepribadian, dan lebih banyak bermain.
