#4 Why Home Educate?

Understanding what's best for your child With Gabriela Galasinska

On this fourth episode of the podcast, you'll hear from Gabriela, who's kids are educated at home.  Like many parents, when Covid hit, Gabriela started to teach her two children at home.  They were both much happier, as neither of them enjoyed the traditional system.  Once Gabriela realised the potential of home schooling, she enrolled both of them at UK Virtual School, and they haven't looked back.

During the chat, she talks about many of the advantages, including:

  • Flexibility - Her kids are much happier without the rigid days and times.  
  • Her kids felt like they were in a "jail" at their traditional school.  Because of the high fences, and the strict rules.
  • She feels home schooling allows the parent to play a bigger part in their child's education and ultimately get to know them better.
