A Day In The Life Of…’My Early Years’

The following timetable is a rough idea of how we spend our day homeschooling. The word ‘homeschool’ is understood differently to different people. We believe that homeschool is any part of tarbiyyah (cultivating) that is done between parent and child at any given time or place.

Our children’s activities involves a lot of ‘Free Play‘ or Planned activities, making sure we cover all the children’s ‘Development needs’ (as mentioned in the ‘Begin Here‘ page) to the best of our ability. Some days they go through various activities and other days they just focus on one area alone. It’s important to be flexible and use this time to discover the child’s ‘Learning style’ (Visit ‘Vark‘ for more information on learning styles).
