To make informed choices:
-talk to parents and children who are already in the schools you’re considering
-talk with parents and children who are homeschooling
-visit schools and try out programs to see if they fit with your family and your child’s learning style
-get involved: talk to teachers and friends, find out about programs, ask questions, make suggestions and offer help
Carolyn Weatherson says: I have taught yoga to kids in Catholic Schools, English Schools, French Immersion, Montessori, and more, and they are all good. In my opinion we need to support other parents and respect their choices. The only recommendation I have is: listen to your own parental instincts and don’t let anyone else sway you.
Sandra Wilson says she’s happy to talk about homeschooling and unit study materials: www.homeeducationresourceemporium.com
