Christian Homeschool Co-op - Villa Park, IL
We offer nursery for children ages 0-3. However, they are welcome to join their parents during Mom’s Hour if the parents prefer. We ask that all children ages 4+ are signed up for a class so the parents can speak freely.
*All Independent Instructors and babysitters are independent contractors. Homeschool Kingdom does not have any employees.
Homeschool Kingdom designates 1st hour as Mom’s Hour. Instead of having the members volunteer, we give them a break and have independent instructors* and babysitters* instruct the children. This is an hour when we offer karate, piano, guitar, ballet, and robotics classes. Children also have the option to choose a fun class or nursery managed by babysitters*.
Homeschool Kingdom Mom’s Hour is designed to help the “disciple-makers” (a.k.a. the members) do their best to guide their children to become disciples that honor God.
During Mom’s Hour we take prayer requests, pray together, have a fun 'get to know you' question, and then discuss homeschool help topics. We have coffee and treats to sweeten the deal!
The fall homeschool help topics are geared towards the "how to's" including various difficulties, logistics, and challenges.
Homeschool help topics may include: basics of how to homeschool, IL homeschool laws, tactics to handle difficult children, ways to keep little ones occupied, tools for teaching multi-ages, homeschooling through depression, grading & record keeping, help with transcripts, and alternative teaching ideas. We will try to offer advice and encouragement for your specific issues.
The spring homeschool help topics offer an in-depth look at each subject (and local academic co-ops) so members can thumb through curriculum and share reviews. We hope this helps when members select their own curriculum.
Mom's Hour is designed to be helpful, encouraging, and fulfilling. We want moms to feel supported by other moms who understand their needs and share their values. In addition, we hope this helps develop genuine friendships.
