Why Homeschooling?

We feel very strongly that the time has come for parents to seriously consider enrolling their children to this mode of schooling. This is informed by two major reasons:

  • Covid 19 – Since the wake of the pandemic and closure of the schools, majority of children have not received education. The first phase opening that involved class 4, class 8 and form 4, have left so many children and teachers infected and quite a sizable number are have died. We believe the landscape wont change much come January 2021. Covid 19 regrettably remains a big threat to children and teachers and there is no clear solution as of now. Homeschooling allows for proper education to continue in an environment that is safest – that is home.

  • Economic factors – Covid 19 has ravaged and disorganized many families financially, most parents have lost jobs and businesses, thus the need to rethink family expenditure. Our model is by far affordable when compared to traditional schooling costs. Some of our parents have reported 50-80% savings on school fees and transport costs. Homeschooling gives you a chance to give your children the same quality of education, with an affordable budget, and without exposing them to the risk of Covid 19.

What Is Homeschooling?

Homeschooling is a model of schooling where the child receives formal education within the home setting, and without having to attend traditional school/classes. In homeschooling, it’s expected that a guardian e.g a parent will offer requisite support and guidance to their children in learning. In our case, we set-in to assist the parents by offering the following:

  1. Quality education though online classes that covers the syllabus on time
  2. Classes are conducted by teachers that are fully qualified, widely experienced and fully registered by TSC and international bodies
  3. Register the children with the government for national examination
  4. We provide examination centers for national exams
  5. Set and certify assignments and exams
  6. We send the parents monthly performance report forms
  7. We support parents in acquiring learning materials

The Benefits Of Homeschooling

There are many benefits to home educating your child over the traditional schooling:

  1. Quality – We guarantee fully fledged, robust teaching and tuition services, and in full compliance with the curriculum of your choice. Our teachers are fully qualified, widely experienced and registered with Teachers service commission and international bodies for international curricula.

  2. Safety – in the light of Covid19 pandemic, our children will receive full syllabus as per the ministry
    of education guidelines from the safely from your home. It’s the safest model of schooling both for
    parents and teachers.

  3. Cost – You will save big on school fees and transport costs. Soo many familys’ income has been
    affected by Covid19 Pandemic, it’s a relief to note that parents have reported up to 80% savings of
    schooling costs with our services. Quality education does not have to be expensive!

  4. Convenient – Children do not need to wake up at 5am to catch the bus, or spend hours stuck in
    traffic. In traditional schooling, some students have been enrolled to schools that are 20/30km away
    from home. These children take 1-2 hours in the morning and again in the evening. The result is that
    the student is always tired and does not learn well given the exhaustion and lack of proper sleep.
    And, is still expected to do homework. In homeschooling there is none of this. The classes start well
    after breakfast and has enough breaks in between classes.

  5. Relaxed learning – Timetables are drawn to allow the children have relaxed class schedules and still
    cover the syllabus in time.

  6. Extra-curricular activities – Play time is very vital to child’s development. We are working on
    arranged schedules that will allow our students to participate in extra-curricular activities at least
    once every week, for different localities at different times. such will include sporting, dance, music,
    biking etc

  7. Holistic family benefits – In countries where homeschooling is largely practiced like USA, UK,
    South Africa, it has been reported that stronger family ties emerge.

  8. Child’s behaviors is majorly modeled by the parent which significantly increases the chances of
    children becoming well behaved, industrious and well balance members of society.

  9. Extra tutorship classes can be arranged for specific classes/subjects on parent’s request.

  10. We can assist the parents acquire learning materials on request.

Legal Status Of Homeschooling In Kenya

The law states clearly that it is the obligation of the parents and the government to ensure their children obtain basic education and there is no any law against homeschool your children in Kenya. In fact, there is a legal precedent that homeschooling is acceptable as the traditional schooling.

The government requires private students to register for national exams, and we ensure all students that are due for national exams are duly registered as such, we will provide certified examination centers and all along the education journey, we ensure parents and students are kept abreast with the policies in the education sector and always act as the link between the students/parents and the government.
