We asked many homeschoolers what they were looking for in a co-op, and overwhelmingly they answered that the number one reason they made time for their family to attend co-op was for fellowship.
That is why we are here! We have a fun and interesting schedule planned for next year. Our daily schedule includes 2 class periods and a recess of 20 minutes between periods. This reduces the amount of effort and stress moms have to put out, and maximizes our time together.
We have just the right mix of learning and fun.
The co-op morning ends with an optional brown bag lunch. Everyone is invited to stay, eat, and fellowship.
In addition, we have three special Mondays during the school year that are scheduled for Field-trips instead of co-op.
So now you can have field-trips and co-op too!
