Many parents have been looking for alternatives to public school education. This, especially since the pandemic began.

Now in this “new” reality, homeschools and private learning centres are becoming more attractive. In this article, we will highlight…

“5 Reasons Why You Should Consider Homeschooling Your Kid”

1. Quality education/syllabus

Compared to the national syllabus, the majority of parents that homeschool their kids believe the IGCSE syllabus is a better option to prepare their children for the future. Universities or other international learning institutions recognize the IGCSE syllabus. This means you are preparing for your child’s future here in Malaysia and abroad.

2. Learning at their own pace

Homeschools have flexible schedules that can accommodate a child’s learning capabilities. Students can spend more time on subjects they are weak in, or move faster in subjects that they are good at. Homeschools focus on one or a few subjects in a day for better learning. This is unlike public schools, which cram several subjects in a day.

3. Wide range of subjects

The IGCSE syllabus has 70 subjects to choose from. You can choose the subjects that you feel will be important for your child’s future, not just in Malaysia but in any other country, should they wish to go on that path.

4. More time to pursue their passion

Children in public schools don’t have much time to pursue their passion like music, the arts and etc. This is because they spend much of their day in school and travelling time to and from school. By the time they reach home, there’s homework and no time to play. Homeschoolers have a balance of learning and time to pursue other activities.

5. Safe environment

One of the reasons why parents pull their child/children out from public school, is because of an unsafe environment. Sometimes there can be other students who are bullies or students that discriminate other cultures. Although public schools present an opportunity to learn about other cultures and religion, there could be negative influences surrounding the children. In Homeschools, these issues can be closely monitored to prevent any untoward incidents.
