1. Do I have to homeschool my own children?
Here at Kairos, we believe that homeschooling is a family lifestyle and is the most effective when parents commit to teach their own children. Students who need assistance for particular subjects may wish to outsource tutors or other learning devices for that particular area. The primary instructor, however, is still a role best suited for the parents of a homeschooled child.
2. How many hours a day do I have to spend on homeschooling?
As stated above, homeschooling is a lifestyle, and it is impossible to quantify a specific amount of time parents spend homeschooling. With regards to structured education, children at preschool levels may require a total of 1 hour per day of formal instruction while each additional school year may require another half hour to master newer subjects and topics.
3. Are there requirements for parents who wish to homeschool?
Kairos requires primary instructors of students to have graduated from a four-year college course completed with a respectable academic institution. Kairos also requires individuals teaching current students to attend at least 3 out of our 12 annual instructor seminars to continuously polish both parenting and homeschooling skills.
4. Can I work and homeschool at the same time?
Balancing work and homeschooling is an entirely possible endeavor, provided that one’s work requirements allows for a flexible lifestyle. Some parent instructors choose to involve their children at work or to pursue careers that allow for pliable work hours and locations. Young children’s lives are greatly enriched by parents who invest their time in their families and often benefit from high levels of parent involvement.
