A large part of children's learning depends on their parents, immediate community, the values they're brought up with, the environment they're exposed to, the culture they consume, the speech they hear, and the ideas they're presented with every day. A child's education is a partnership between the parent/caregiver and school/mentor. Talk to any one here at BLC and that's what you'll hear quite often: our special brand of 'personalized' education won't happen if the people closest to the child aren't involved.
This is why we encourage our homeschoolers to come to the center every week—not just once a month, not once in a fortnight--so that we can regularly and personally check on their progress and recommend other avenues of learning that the children might enjoy. (And this is also why, barring distance and other concerns, we highly recommend our Blended Learning Program—the kids are here four times a week, albeit with shortened hours—for maximum interaction with likeminded kids, parents, and teachers who can definitely offer a richer and more rounded learning experience.)
** this post originally was an invitation for parents to notify us or our homestudy modules provider of any errors in the modules. However, our offers to edit such—free of charge and without taking any credit—were met with much resistance. No matter. Our teachers and staff, including myself, are committed to your children's positively unforgettable learning experience with BLC. We regularly suggest all sorts of activities, trips, and material that we believe your children will be interested in, and that will take his appreciation for learning higher. Let's all work together to make them soar :)
