At Hils, our approach has always been to address the individual childâ€™s needs. Our teaching methods, learning environment and interaction with the children all cater towards this. Weâ€™ve often been told that Hils is just…Â different. This isnâ€™t entirely surprising, since weâ€™re here to help children who themselves, learn differently!
At our very first Homeschooling Parent Support Group Meeting last week, one of the things that the parents had discussed was â€˜Why Hils is Differentâ€™.
Here are some of the things that were said:
â€˜Kids are happy to come, learning becomes FUN! Hils has the awareness, understanding and empathy.â€™
â€˜Individual learning is a gift. It can reinforce a childâ€™s confidence.â€™
â€˜Understanding that children have their own strengths, which are not sometimes demonstrated in a standard classroom situation.â€™
â€˜Learning through play.â€™
â€˜No fear- for parents and children.â€™
â€˜Quiet environment with no distractions aids concentration.â€™
â€˜Hils looks for the cause of the problem and helps rather than merely overloading the child with information they cannot cope with.â€™
â€˜Specially taught tutors who can understand how the childâ€™s mind works. The teachers have more time to concentrate on the child.â€™
â€˜Thinking outside the box- looking at other issues in relation to learning.â€™
