Why Choose Us?

IMG_3482.heic

This is not a school; this is a collaborative learning program which supplies everything that’s missing in standard educational settings. We are a community of  educators who care deeply about, and believe in, what we do.

 

Through our service, parents have the say in what their children learn, and what they don’t, with whom they learn and how often; outsourcing only what they choose - on days and times and in groups they choose, with like-minded people.

 

For example, many families will want to teach health and sexual development, home economics (including cooking) sport, music, religion, languages and/or arts and crafts themselves, interacting intentionally with their children; in their homes, with wisdom, purpose and love.

 

We support them in this through our mentoring sessions and resources. Then, using our like-minded service, you can elect to have your children attend skilfully taught and prepared group lessons, taught by qualified, experienced like-minded tutors, in groups which also foster their social/ emotional learning. 

 

Our service also provides parents access to experienced mentors-

to assist them in designing and meeting educational and personal outcomes at home. 

This can include promoting growth in social skills or in spirituality, and in developing personal character traits.

 

Parenting can be hard. The optional mentorship conversations to connect and build wisdom together, can be rewarding, engaging and a powerful tool. 

In short, our system allows you to:

  • Choose the groups your child participates in and the social influences upon them

  • Choose quality tutors with whom your child relates

  • Be involved in their learning yourselves 

  • Access mentoring for yourself as parents, or for your child at any stage

  • Control your finances by only booking what you need 

  • Choose the best and happiest environment for your children

- in real small-group and one to one learning situations so they are properly, individually and personally taught and cared for.

Be part of a like-minded, empowered community.
