Homeschooler Mondays

Homeschooler Mondays 2017-2018

Come join our education staff for an hour of self-directed learning in our galleries followed by an hour-long school program.  Afterwards, we are pleased to open our Atrium for homeschooled families to eat their lunches and visit.

We recognize that homeschooled families often have children of a variety of ages, so each Homeschooler Monday we will offer a primary program for ages 5-8 (grades K-3) and an intermediate program for ages 9-12 (grades 4-7) simultaneously.  We ask that parents of multi-child families attend the program with their youngest child.

Registration is completed on a first come-first served basis.  Registration may be completed the morning of the program, but we strongly suggest pre-registering to guarantee your child has a space reserved in the program.  Registration is limited to 24 children in the primary programs and 30 children in the intermediate programs.  Fees must be paid at the time of registration to hold your child’s space in the program.  Fees are $4/child for museum members and $5/child for non-members.

*February is our last Homeschooler Monday of the school year.  We will resume in September.  Please check back closer to September for that schedule.

Primary programs are geared towards grades K-3, and intermediate programs are geared towards grades 4-7.

Our programs are aimed at the Science K-7 curriculum as laid out by the Province of British Columbia Ministry of Education.  You can find more information on how our programs link to the BC Ministry of Education here.
