WHERE HOMESCHOOLERS MEET
TO PLAY, SOCIALIZE AND LEARN!
PLAY: We believe that play is a vital component of child development. My Village gives homeschool children the opportunity to play a variety of games including gaga ball, laser-tag, ping-pong, 4 square and many, many others. Free play is also important to foster their imagination and develop their personal interests.
SOCIALIZE: We know that regular interaction with other children helps kids develop their social skills and builds lasting friendships with other children of various ages and backgrounds. We do our best to foster a loving environment where we accept each other's differences and learn how to communicate effectively with one another.
LEARN: We believe parents are the best teachers of their children since they are most invested in their child’s future. Our purpose is to provide learning opportunities that parents may not be able to provide at home due to space, materials, resources, or abilities. We also believe that providing children with learning experiences that foster their natural inquisitiveness creates life-long learners.
At My Village we value a hands-on approach to learning. Nearly every class has some kind of demonstration or student-led project. Here are a few samples:
HOW IT ALL BEGAN
My Village Learning Center was formed in 2018 by public school educators that decided to homeschool their own children. Our goal is to bless the homeschool community by providing classes, tutoring, evaluations, field trips, online classes, and an umbrella school as well as provide moral support to homeschool families.
