Has anybody out there used Calvert School for your kids? Particularly for Pre-K or K?
My big kids will be enrolled in Epic Charter School next school year. The little ones (pre-k and k) can also enroll if we want them to. I'm currently considering all of our options.
With Epic you can choose your child's homeschool curriculum from several that the school has made an agreement with. With this program you use your child's "learning fund" (the funds that would have gone to the public brick and mortar school) to pay for your child's education. We'll have about $1000 a child. Most of that would go to pay for the curriculum. Some can also go to provide technology for learning (like a laptop, internet, etc.). Finally, you can use the money to enroll your kids in extra-curriculuar activities like dance or choir or football.
I certainly do not think a 4 year old child NEEDS to be enrolled in school! But, would it hurt to have her in a pre-K homeschool program? I think not. And it would be nice to be able to use our educational funds to put her in dance (which I really think she would like).
ANYWAY.... The only pre-K option for Epic right now is Calvert School. If anybody has used Calvert (or heard good/bad things), especially for the younger kiddos I would love your feedback!
