Setting up a home schooling program is going to take some time and planning and there are a lot of decisions that are going to need to be made. One of the important aspects of the planning is going to be the home school schedule.
Parents have the option of being able to set the schooling hours during the day to what works the best f
or both the parent and child as well as the rest of the family. While many like to try and follow the traditional school structure there are some parents that this doesn’t work well for.
Some parents find that their children learn much better in the morning compared to the afternoon and they may want to use this to their advantage for structuring the educational content according to the best attributes that the child is showing.
One of the other areas of importance is to structure the schedule so that it fits in with the calendar year of the public school students, as the children will more than likely have friends that are in the public system. By being on the same schedule it allows them to socialize with the other children when they are not attending school.
It is important that the parent follow the regulations that are in place by the region where they live as this will dictate what the curriculum for learning has to be. The parent also has to determine what resources are available to them for supplying these materials and those which have to be bought. This means sourcing out good resources for obtaining these materials.
While the parent has to set the schedule for the children they also have to set it for themselves. This means having no interruptions during the educational, time and being totally dedicated to what the requirements of the parent/teacher is going to have to assume. One of the keys to a successful implementation is to keep business/school and personal life’s seperate.
