How will I know if my child is learning?
Each week your child will complete tasks that are designed to show their understanding of concepts that are being presented. Hands on activities and work samples are perfect opportunities for you as a parent to gauge their grasp of new concepts. If you notice your child has not fully understood the new information, simply repeat the activity.
Is there any special equipment required?
No. The activities presented use the type of resources that are available at any supermarket or stationary store. Each week starts with an outline of the resources that will be needed for the upcoming week.
Can we individualise the program?
We are dedicated to ensuring the program is a great fit for every child. We do this by adding particular subjects as needed.
Begin by downloading and looking at the free week sample online. This will help you select the core Grade for your child. Then, we can add a higher or lower Grade subject as required. For example, if your child is in Grade 4 as a core Grade but needs extra support in English, we can add Grade 3 English (valued at $50) free of charge to your program. If however your child requires extra extension, we can supply Grade 5 English (valued at $50) free of charge. We are very flexible and you can adjust the core Grade at the end of any Term.
How long per day will the program take?
The time each child spends on learning activities will vary. There is no hard and fast rule. The program outlines the number of lessons for each subject, each week, and allows families to write up a timetable that suits their personal needs.
We ensure that our program leaves plenty of room in each day to pursue activities that the student has a desire or talent for. Our program is designed to be a part of family time, not separate from it.
What support is available?
We provide online support by qualified teachers. We are here to guide you and your child through their learning adventure.
What happens after Grade 10?
We will not be providing Grade 11 and 12. We find that completing Grade 10 via home education and then moving into TAFE to complete a Cert 3 or 4 in a chosen field to be far more beneficial. This allows direct entry into University and in most cases credit for many first year subjects.
The result is that your child is not only able to enter university earlier, but often has a lighter workload, and a better grounding of the subject matter than those coming from school. There are other options where the university runs their own entry college programs. These accept home educated students
Be assured your children actually have an advantage being home educated, when it comes to higher learning and opportunities.
