I believe that school is an integral part of our kids lives. For learning, socialization and problem solving, they get it all in one single day... add 4 more and they get a week of growth right before our eyes. I've got one child in college, another one graduating in 5 months and another graduating next year. I also have 4 others still in elementary school waiting to take on the world that is provided for them.
Now, I don't believe that schools are the only teachers around, even with our kids in school we still need to do some extra work at home that isn't always required. Because not all kids are created equal and without parental interaction they can't make it in a fast moving school.
That being said I'm always looking for new ways to help my kids navigate through school and get the core essentials that will build a stable foundation later on in life. So I am turning to K5 Learning.
