Homeschooling guidance for parents and guardians

Homeschooling can be a daunting task.  We have compiled a guide to structuring the homechool day that may be useful to parents and guardians.  This is not intended to replace any activities or work set by your child's school, but as a complemetary guide to assist with structuring the day.

A structured daily plan can help guide children through the day. Try to include a range of different activities each day. Make sure you take time for self care and mindfulness. Fresh air and exercise is just as important as reading and spelling, plan some of this into each day in small blocks. 

Remember to schedule in a morning break, lunch break and an afternoon break.
