Our Summer School for Mom series is aimed at all who educate children:
- If you are new to educating at home, you’ll have a very defined road map to help you think out of the box and serve your children.
- If you are a veteran home educator, you’ll come away inspired and encouraged and armed with new tweaks.
- And if you are a tutor, mentor, or other type of educator, you’ll pick up ideas that can be used when educating children in any scenario.
Get ready, get excited, go!
