Resource for Home Schoolers

Parents choose to home school for many reasons. Imparting a particular set of values, allowing their children to learn at their own pace, and providing enrichment activities not available in the public school setting are among them.

But some parents have concerns about home schooling as well. They want their children to spend time with other kids, especially if they have no siblings. They may not feel confident to teach all subject areas, or they can’t imagine spending all day every day with their kids.

A cooperative offers the benefits of home schooling while addressing the concerns some parents may have. A place where their children are encouraged and directed in many different areas through a variety of instructors and media is a great addition to the children’s home schooling experience.

By establishing our home schooling group at Growing Places Creative Learning Center, we become part of the Growing Places community. The Growing Places mission and expectations are like the roots of a tree providing nourishment to all of the branches or programs.

homeschool playThe blossoms on the tree, of course, are our children, families and community.

September approaches quickly, and at this point we seek the commitment of those families wishing to be involved so that we may formulate a tentative plan for the year. Please take a moment to contact us to let us know what your intentions are so that we may proceed accordingly!

As we begin:

Mixed age classes will emphasize science, social studies, language, and the arts within the context of the thematic projects and service activities.
