A Tale of Three Kindergartens – Part 3

    All children need a good, basic education. Flexibility in starting age for starting Kindergarten is very important as illustrated in this article. The child’s basic learning style and temperament should be considered when enrolling your child in Kindergarten. Public schools, charter schools, homeschool or boarding schools can differ widely in the atmosphere and academic materials they offer your child. Matching the learning style of your child with the right teacher can make the difference between school success or failure. Parents know their children the best so they should decide which kind of school atmosphere is best for their child. If they are not sure, they can obtain school counseling or visit different school settings themselves. Once the choice is made, the parents job is to support their child’s learning by encouraging good work habits, helping with homework if needed. All this said, if the parents are in a position to homeschool their own children, by all means, talk to other homeschool moms, get motivated by following a home school leader who will help guide you through the set-up homeschool phase and beyond. You will be surprised how rewarding and fun it is to teach your own child in a home setting. “There really isn’t any place like home” in my humble opinion.

      If you are going to try homeschooling, Lisa would be a great resource as she has had a lot of experience in this area and shares her ideas, methods, research, and experiences with homeschooling her own three children. Thank you, Lisa, for helping other moms to have the confidence to start homeschooling their children.
