Our vision is to create a solution for home educating families that allows the freedom of choice around their child’s education; one that fits around their child’s lifestyle and learning needs. Our school is built around children and families in mind.
We want to be different. We want the students to feel they can also be different and unique and this is something to be celebrated about. We embrace differences and diversity as part of our norm.
We don’t try to adopt the traditional school structure – we create our own! We run for three weeks at a time, starting with the first Monday of the month, with at least one week of holiday each month. This reduces zoom fatigue and gives our students and teachers a breather at the end of each month and also amazing flexibility to go on holiday.
We don’t tie parents in for the full year if they don’t want to. You can enroll from as little as a month’s commitment at a time. We know you will love us and want to stay longer!
We don’t mark homework, but instead we choose to instill a growth mindset amongst our students. We want our students to develop a love for learning and not feel like they’re doing it because it’s expected of them.
We don’t have huge classroom numbers – we have a maximum of 10 students per class. Our virtual classrooms are large enough to simulate a classroom-like feel, yet small enough to make sure individual support is accommodated.
And it works! It’s efficient and is centred around families. We’re able to bridge that gap between home education and online learning.
