Start a Home Learning Centre
An exciting growing trend in the homeschooling market are home learning centres. These are where a responsible person acts as the business owner that sets up and manages the centre from their home. Typically these consist of up to 10 school going children that “attend” school from your home or other suitable premises.
As a minimum requirement you will need suitable premises to cater for each student, and each student will need a desk/workstation. You will also need a solid, reliable and fast internet connection that each student can access. Each student should provide their own laptop pc which they bring to the centre each day. You will also need to have the ability to network or market amongst your local community to attract the no. of students you require.
Generally non Cyber School centres do not work well for the following two reasons;
1. They are run by a teacher or willing parent that tries to teach numerous children of different ages and grades. As it is virtually impossible to attract students all for the same grade at the same time, these centres end up with a mixture of grades having to be catered for. This does not work except for those centres that use the Cyber School delivery methods. Here's why; each student needing to be taught at different grades simultaneously creates chaos and is totally unworkable. Instead, with Cyber School, each student will have his own headset and laptop and will work independently and will not rely upon the supervisor or other students for support. This means you can have any mixture of students and grades studying within the centre at the same time. This renders other centres unworkable and demonstrates that your Cyber School learning centre structure is ideally suited.
2. They are not run as businesses. This is firstly a business and secondly a learning centre. If the centre is not run as a business it will not succeed at delivering a suitable learning environment and will fail as a learning centre. Cyber School can provide the advice you need to help ensure your centre is a success.
