One of the most common questions we get is ‘will my child be ready for a public kindergarten after BWK?’. Our answer is “yes”.
Here’s a great quote from the book Free Range Learning. “Children in Finland don’t start formal eduction until the age of seven. They enjoy longer summer holidays and are spared the sort of standardized testing so popular in the US. During the school year Finnish children gather in small classes where they are provided a rich variety of activities, including art, music, woodworking, and crafts. From early grades through the mid teen years, they go outdoors for a recreation period after each forty-five minute lesson. A young persons’s need for free time, fresh air, and play is understood. By the age of fifteen, Finnish students rank at the top of the world in knowledge and skills”.
