Our Curriculum?

                                                           We Aim To:

  • Provide a homeschool curriculum that caters for your child’s individual needs and is fun and attractive. 

  • The children can work at their own pace and level in mathematics.

  • We want to help develop your child to their full potential without unnecessary assessments and content. 

  • Interactive experiments and activities for each science topic.

Developing skills that could bring in an income as an adult one day 


                                                         English & Social sciences:

  • South African, Story-based curriculum.

  • Developed by South African homeschool mom’s Shirley Erwee and Wendy Young.

  • Each theme is linked to a historical story about South Africa starting with the Khoi-San


Math-U-See assigns each book a level rather than a grade. Each level focuses on one main topic, with a few sub topics (money, time or measurement) mixed in. 

  • Gamma (3rd grade:) multiplication 

  • Delta (4th grade:) division 

  • Epsilon (5th grade:) fractions 

  • Zeta (6th grade:) decimals and percentages

This intense focus on one topic at a time ensures that the topic is fully mastered by the end of the level.

EACH CILD will write a placement test to make sure that they start on a level best suited for them. One on one - group touring. Own resources. More Info?


  • Every lesson has a hands-on experiment or activity.

  • Every lesson has three levels of review (youngest students, older students, and oldest students). We use it for all elementary ages.

  • Rather than concentrating on a particular topic each year, the courses cover science in a historical framework. This book deals with the beginning of history - creation. The student learns the science behind every day life, so by the end of the year, all scientific areas have been touched on.

  • The section will be tested to ensure consolidation of the content.

  • This is becoming the most in-demand skill across industries. We want to develop skills that the kids will be able to use and develop later on in life.


  • Helps unleash your originality, since it activates the right side of the brain. It also helps increase problem solving skills.

Touch typing:


  •  It is difficult to type something while reading it if you have to look down at the keyboard every other stroke to find your next key.



  • If you increase your typing speed from, say 30 words per minute to 60, you have effectively halved the time it would take you to do the same amount of work.


  • Typing is both mentally and physically exhorting to do for long periods of time. Learn how to type properly reduces both mental and physical fatigue.

Job prospects.

  • Typing is not an optional skill anymore. Many employers require computer skills and a certain typing speed to even be considered for some positions. 


  • When your typing with two fingers, your focus is split between finding the keys on the keyboard and the work you are doing on the computer. Leaning to type allows you to focus on one thing instead of two. This tends to increase productivity and make it easer to pay attention to the details of the project rather than having to focus on the keys.
