Are your children starting a virtual program this fall? Maybe instead, you’re thinking about trying your hand at homeschooling. Whatever your situation is, you’re not alone! Many parents and caregivers have concerns and fears about navigating virtual programs. Similarly, there are many who are considering homeschooling their children this year and do not know where to start.
There’s a lot to consider either way, since both routes involve educating your child from your home, instead of a school building. Overwhelmed yet? Not to worry! In our upcoming workshop for parents and caregivers, Aubrey Hargis, M.Ed., will teach you all you need to know to create an effective and efficient virtual or home school system. Learn how to prepare yourself, organize a learning environment in your home, and get your child’s education schedule aligned with your family’s needs. Plus, be sure to come prepared with your questions, because Aubrey will be offering a live Q & A session at the end of her talk.
Aubrey Hargis, M.Ed. is a parent coach and educational consultant best known for her empathetic approach and appreciation for the magic of childhood. Her website, Child of the Redwoods, is packed with ideas for activities to do with your child, links to her podcast, and of course, lots of advice on homeschooling.
