School holiday programs at a glance

When looking at school holiday program, I look at some fundamental key points…

  • How long will my child be there for?
  • What are the ages of the other children attending?
  • Who’s running the program and what experience do they have?
  • When my child comes home, will they be ready and keen to go again?

The overview of Code Camp

So when I looked at Code Camp, there were some distinct qualities that I felt were of value…

  • Children generally like building stuff
  • Kids are divided by age-appropriate groups
  • Code Camp is the biggest of its type in Australia
  • There’s a distinctively high amount of 5 star reviews
  • Their timings suit working parents, stretching from 8am to 5pm
  • They’ve got full coverage with multiple venues in every Australian city

No review would be complete unless I provided some downsides. Well, it’s best to call this one room-for-improvement. The major one is the cost. They aren’t cheap, but then they are not the most expensive either when it comes to school holiday programs. In fact, I felt they were reasonably priced for what the offer is. The other note is that this type of school holiday program won’t suit a small portion of the community, as children will be on the computer for a significant portion of the day but will also have some classroom teaching without computer use, plus outdoor time too. Some parents, especially those of young children (5 to 7) avoid computer use all together, so this certainly wouldn’t be the most ideal program at all. You’d likely not fall into this group though… 🙂

Who goes to Code Camp?

So there’s some key point for who I think that this school holiday program is for. Read through this list and see if you or your child falls into any of those…

  • Children who love computers
  • Children who would like to make new friends
  • Parents who see Information Technology as the future
  • Parents who really want to give their child their future a head-start
  • Parents who value safety, and want a safe and supported environment

Let’s see the FREE course

Yes, I have access to an extensive and free video training course for you, and I’d like to provide you an exclusive invitation. It’s for parents, but also for parents who really want to give their children a great start in life. Parents and children are most welcome to watch it together. It’s a course on how to create a success small business on Amazon, part time on the side. Something that could help pay the additional bills, pay the school fees or help knock down the credit card.

You see, I sell on Amazon. I make a full time income. But I only work 7 to 10 hours per week. Sometimes I hardly believe this is possible. My friends (many of them also parents) also can’t believe that I’ve achieved this, but I have. But here’s where it gets interesting…I know hundreds of Australians also doing this right now, earning a solid income working minimal hours on Amazon.

Here’s the good news, and I’d like to invite you to start watching this free course just for you. It’s been created by my good friend Adam Hudson. Adam’s also an Australian, and has helped many parents across the country start their journey selling on Amazon, those who simply started watching the free course he offers. You’re most welcome to take this invitation to check out the course which is available on this page.

And now that Code Camp Coupon Code…

Yes! As of right now, I do have some great news for you. It’s true that you’ve been given the opportunity to get access to a free video course by my good friend Adam Hudson. Yet, unfortunately there isn’t a discount, promo or discount code available. Should Code Camp wish to reach out and offer such a code for my thousands of loyal readers, I’d be most happy to share it here with the community

I do feel that Code Camp offers excellent value. While they’re a young company, they’re also a committed and heart-driven company, and have established a solid foot-hold in the Australian market. You’re most welcome to drop any questions or comments below, though the more technical questions should go directly to them. Feel free to call their friendly team, there’s no pressure to sign up to the program after that first introductory phone call.

Learn the truth about FutureSchool before you sign your children up!

As a child, my parents utilized the FutureSchool systems and here are my results. I flew my way through school and on to university. And whilst at university, I decided that it wasn’t for me, however I know first hand the impact that their English and Mathematics skills had on me in my working life.

At the time of taking their courses, it was a pack of CD’s and before the internet age, and it was still very effective. However, I have talked to other parents who really enjoy taking their courses and I’ll certainly be doing the same with my kids. To begin 2016, I’m going to offer a link that you may or may not be able to receive a discount on which I’ll receive a small amount of compensation for keeping my blog running.

10 Reasons To Home School Australian Children

What exactly is home schooling and is it popular in Australia? Homeschooling is simply educating your children from the comfort of your home, just like it was done 100 years ago before governments (and corporations) took over the job of schooling. In terms of numbers, at the time of this writing there were approximately 3,000 registered home school students and an estimated 10,000 students unregistered (for numerous reasons). It’s likely that the amount of home schooled children in Australia exceeds 30,000.

Reasons for Australian home schooling:

1) Children learn from their own experiences.

In comparison to typical schools, the learning never stops for the child who can create their own personal experience. I feel a lot of my school years was simply over-rated babysitting (moving classrooms, filling in paperwork, listening to students answer questions I already know, doing work to pass the time).

2) Learn about financial education for kids

You’ll find that in typical government schools, money, business and financial education is hardly ever mentioned. No wonder so many people in Australia and in deed around the world are loaded up with debt right now! When you home school Australian children, you’ll have lots of time to include the subjects that government schools miss, and you can include material from financial authors such as Robert Kiyosaki and Donald Trump.

3) Increased social development.

I’ve found that through my research on Australian home schooling, the only valid reason for public schoolers to promote tehir choice is that children need school so they can develop their social skills. It’s fair to say that in the real world, we’re all surrounded by people of different ages, cultures, religions and belief systems. Thus children in schools will be surrounded by a narrow band and will be living mostly in an artificial bubble. I believe that it is necessary to have some social contact with children their own age, so out-of-school sports, theater, music, hobbies etc are highly recommended.

4) Children can question things

This one is a big reason for me and my children personally. Most children won’t ask questions at school due to the fear of being wrong or teased later on by their peers. On the other hand, those who are homeschooled tend not only to ask questions without fear, but also explore greater possibilities that could exist.

5) Lack of drugs / influence / violence etc

This point is obvious, you’ll have full control over the environment in which you place your children. Exposure to violence isn’t good for any children, especially before teenager years where the child needs to grow with love and self esteem that you as a parent should be providing them.

6) Open selection of subjects to learn

Your children can pursue an unlimited range of subjects in addition to the core subjects. 12 years is a lot of time to waste spend at school, so why not put that time to good use! Fancy teaching them three different languages? You can do that! What them to begin building a passive income stream? You can work with them to do that.

7) You can live anywhere

This is one of the best benefits of owning a location independent business. We have the ability to roam and live where we please. And indeed, most people move every 2-3 years as well, but if you’re kids are attending school, then there is some fear and stress associated with them settling in a new school.

8) You can choose your teachers

Homeschooling isn’t all about you assisting your child with their progress. You’re able to bring private teachers of your own choosing, meaning you can interview them first. Granted, I would say that most teachers in schools are well meaning with good intentions, but wouldn’t you like to have a choice in who you trust your most precious gift to?

9) Children can find out what they want to do in life

It’s the typical question asked of school children “what do you want to do when you grow up?” and most children are still lost even at their final year of schooling. When your Australian children are home schooled, you can indeed create opportunities for them to experience a job, business or lifestyle before they commit to doing so.

10) You are empowering your children.

Schools are intentionally dumbing down children. That sounds far-fetched but if you do further investigation (and read the book Dumbing Us Down by John Gatto amongst others) you’ll see that the governments and corporations don’t want a nation of creative thinkers, but instead a nation of workers. Which of course begins in school, where children are dis-empowered and are shaped to fit within a box and are unable to explore their own potential. This gives rise to an increasingly growing personal development industry to help adults re-empower themselves due to the effects of school.

HomeSchoolAustralia

One of the reasons that parents still continue to use public/private schooling is that is what was done for them, and thus they feel it is acceptable. But upon reading this, I’m sure you can draw your own conclusions as to whether or not you’ll home school your Australian children. I feel personally that the time has come to think again for ourselves, since the industrial age ended long ago and we now can create a new way of doing things!
