World Schooling

We believe learning should be life-long and meaningful.

It should fuel the pursuits that our passions ignite.

We want to master the foundations so we can hone our ability to constantly grow.

“Tell me, and I will forget. Show me, and I may remember. Involve me, and I will understand.” – Confucius, circa 450 BC

As parents, we have taken a long, hard look at the education of our children and the education process overall, experiencing the broad spectrum between private and public options.

It is our experience that when children are in a real-world environment, guided by adults who see their potential and believe that they are capable, something magical happens . . . children step up to the challenge and take ownership and responsibly for their learning.  This provides an empowering opportunity to choose and thrive in their interests, on their time and within their developmental readiness.

“Education is a natural process carried out by the human individual, and is acquired not by listening to words, but by experiences in the environment.” – Maria Montessori

We know in our hearts, and based on ten years of experience in the education system, that removing our children from the traditional classroom to travel the world would be an education in of itself, one that no classroom could ever compare; welcome to “World Schooling”.

Our job now, as homeschooling parents, is to customize an education plan and real world travel experience for our three children that meets our provincial standards yet allows them each to grow into the human beings they are already striving to become. And by embracing their interests, talents and dreams while working with their developmental readiness to nurture themselves to be fully aware, contributing and joyful beings on this planet.

“I have never let my schooling interfere with my education.” – Mark Twain

We are grateful to live in a country that offers a good education and fully supports parents choice to homeschool their children. Can we offer our children something more?

We are certainly going to try.
