What are the advantages of joining a homeschool co-op?

The Advantages of Joining A Homeschool Co-op

A homeschool co-op has many advantages for a parent who is teaching an elementary homeschool program. Here are just a few:

  • You and your children will both develop friendships.
  • Coming together with peers is fun and it enables both adults and children to learn from each other.
  • If a parent is weak in a particular subject another homeschooling parent can teach that subject. For instance, a parent who is weak in math can allow another parent to teach their child math. Then, the parent who is weak in math may teach a subject he or she is in such as history or geography.
  • Children learn about public speaking and how to get up in front of a group through giving reports, doing show-and-tell, or simply reading a story.
  • Character growth is developed in homeschool co-ops because children learn to take instruction from someone other than their parents. They also learn how to share, interact with their peers and be a friend.
  • Homeschool co-ops are a good break from home and something both parents and children look forward to each week.
  • Homeschool co-ops make homeschooling families more accountable and they are more likely to stay on track.
