Home-schooling program

Home-schooling program

Our home-schooling program (which is split into two five week modules) has been specifically designed for you (a home schooling parent) and your child/children.

Our small class sizes, discussion based learning and positive emotional response content, creates a safe and supportive environment where children have the opportunity to meet other children their own age, to build friendships, express thoughts and ideas and explore creativity in an enriching and empowering space. Your child, and fellow class mates, will learn all about the natural world and explore all the ways each of us can do our part to protect Earth now and into the future. 

This gives you some time to sit back with a cup of tea, immerse in a good book or catch up with other home schooling parents.

The program is designed to supplement the NSW Geography and Science Syllabus and supports the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
