PILGRIMS AGAIN

The year 2020 marked the 400th anniversary of the Pilgrims landing at Plymouth Rock. The picture below is of a portion of the National Monument of the Forefathers, commissioned in 1820 to commemorate the guiding principles of our Pilgrim Forefathers. Carved in granite, this lady's name is "Education." While personally seeing education in the context of the entire monument, it is clear that the lady is a learner, not a teacher. The knowledge is in the books, not the teacher. This explains why a library of more than 400 books were on the Mayflower with the 102 Pilgrims when it landed at Plymouth in the winter of 1620.

Motivations for home schooling are as individual and unique as your child:

• Can my child get a better education?

• My child is a quick learner and is bored at school.

• My child is struggling in some subjects and is behind.

• Bullying has gotten out of hand.

• What ever happened to traditional values?

• In a country founded for religious liberty, how is it that the Christian faith

is restricted at school?

 

Concerns about home schooling are usually centered in the parent's mind:

• How can I teach subjects that I do not know well?

• I am not sure where to start, or what a day of home learning would look like? Is there any validity to the “socialization” and “real world” arguments against home learning?

Beginning the home learning journey does feel a little like the Pilgrims may have felt as they boarded the Mayflower; hopeful but apprehensive. But history has proven so much good has resulted from their brave action. The Pilgrims did not journey alone. You do not have to journey alone either, as you partner with Waterbrooks Institute to, “Reclaim your child’s future.”

LATEST NEWS

Any time is a good time to begin Homeschooling.

Spring is the best time to begin the Homeschool transition. Giving yourself time to prepare reduces stress on you and your children. Having time to make informed decisions about curriculum, methods, and all the little practical matters will pay off in a huge way in the Fall.

Beginning now with Waterbrooks Institute, you will be able to steadily prepare yourself to guide your children into a smooth transition to Homeschool. There is time for Diagnostic Testing, Educator Training, ordering materials and setting up your learning center at home. Time to mentally shift gears from the Public-School culture to the “real life,” family centered learning experience of Homeschool. Now is the best time to pre-set for a successful new school year.

While starting now to prepare for a new beginning next fall works well. We recognize that some circumstances demand immediate action. Your child may need you to begin Homeschooling now. Waterbrooks Institute can help that happen quickly. Request an Application Packet on our Admissions page. Any time is a good time to begin Homeschooling.
