The Centre - Overview
Home Learners Program
The Home Learners Program is run out of the Learning Centre at Hume Park, and it is a community-based, fully funded Kindergarten to Grade 8 program for families who choose to take an active role in the education of their children.
The program focuses on a three-way partnership between teachers, parents, and children, while respecting individual learning styles and family goals. The key to the success of students in our program is the hands-on and active daily involvement of parents in their child’s learning. Each of our BC certified teachers works with an entire family usually over a number of years.
The Learning Centre is located in the beautiful Hume Park, New Westminster, providing a warm and friendly learning environment, as well as access to the park, urban forest and the Brunette River. Students attend our Learning Centre in Hume Park part-time, to meet others and learn in group settings. While at the Learning Centre, students are engaged in teacher-led activities, based on the BC curriculum. Teachers encourage the child’s natural curiosity and love of learning.
The program includes face-to-face learning on Tuesdays and Thursdays, online workshops for students and parents, personalized learning plans, access to learning resources, and thematic family projects.
We typically offer a variety of programs and classes throughout the year, including Environmental Education, Applied Skills, Music, Art, Drama, Read-Write-Think classes, Exploring Words and Numbers, PE, French, Cooking, Showcase days, and our Family Camp in May.
