Dear Parents,

During this difficult time when schools are closed indefinitely because of COVID-19, it can feel a little daunting to have to deal with the chaos resulting from this pandemic and still have to take care of your child’s learning. We would like to assure you that our ministry leaders are here for you at this time. Please do not hesitate to reach out to us when things get stressful.

If you are home with your kids, take advantage of this time as an opportunity when you can integrate education with our Christian values (e.g. Talk about stewardship when they are learning about biodiversity). Have fun with the extra time to build relationships with your children.

If you are looking for some ways to support your child’s academic learning, I have put together some resources that you can use. The highly recommended ones are marked with ‘***’. Every child and family is different, I hope you will find something you can enjoy with your kids.

In another blog post I have put together some homeschooling strategies. If you want more detailed guidance, visit the page: So How To Do This Homeschooling Business?
