WHY WE HOMESCHOOL
- WE are a close knit family and thrive in that dynamic
- WE have created a holistic learning environment
- WE structure school so our days are only 2-3 hrs a day, 4 days a week
- WE do most of our extra curricular activities during work hours so we can utilize evening time as a family
- WE love the benefits + freedom it affords us
- WE are Waldorf inspired, interest lead learners + explore a wide variety of topics that would not be available at to us at traditional school
- WE are able to pursue any promising passions
- WE believe that being free to play outside + imaginatively is an important childhood gift.
IT was never my intention to homeschool my children, at the time I was working as a photographer and honestly the thought of educating my (then) only child seems daunting and scary. With a lot of research, a bit of nervousness and no hands on educational experience- we tested the waters. We started our homeschool journey nearly 5 years ago with a smidgen of info from people in real life and a whole lot of concerns, I can happily say that today we are grounded and have found a rhythm that works for us, even now with a busy toddler in tow.
I have since explored several approaches, types and styles of home education, I have relied on my own intuition alongside what is grade equivalent for both of my girls. I have never bought fancy, expensive, yearlong curriculum. I map and plan our school year every fall. I have learned that simpler is better and easier. I am thrilled to say that our children are well-adjusted social beings with a vibrant vocabulary and a knowledge of things that light them up. This year I was able to create a small Co-op with other like-minded homeschool families to learn with, adventure with and connect with.
Its really not a scary as you think. I promise.
