Why Hils is Different- What the Parents Think

At Hils, our approach has always been to address the individual child’s needs. Our teaching methods, learning environment and interaction with the children all cater towards this. We’ve often been told that Hils is just…  different. This isn’t entirely surprising, since we’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 ‘Why Hils is Different’.

Here are some of the things that were said:

‘Kids are happy to come, learning becomes FUN! Hils has the awareness, understanding and empathy.’

‘Individual learning is a gift. It can reinforce a child’s confidence.’

‘Understanding that children have their own strengths, which are not sometimes demonstrated in a standard classroom situation.’

‘Learning through play.’

‘No fear- for parents and children.’

‘Quiet environment with no distractions aids concentration.’

‘Hils looks for the cause of the problem and helps rather than merely overloading the child with information they cannot cope with.’

‘Specially taught tutors who can understand how the child’s mind works. The teachers have more time to concentrate on the child.’

‘Thinking outside the box- looking at other issues in relation to learning.’
