Chicago, IL (PRWEB) August 11, 2005
The Jubilee Academy (http://www.TheJubileeAcademy.org) is expanding its K-12 online Christian school to include Pre-K homeschooling courses for the 2005-2006 school year.
Five Pre-K courses - Math, Science, Social Studies, English, and Bible - taught using Montessori-style learning will provide Preschool children with an exciting and engaging academic program to prepare them for future learning. "Not only will students receive a head start on their intellectual development, but they will also jumpstart their technological awareness in an online world," says Karlie Margaret Houser, Principal of The Jubilee Academy.
Preschooling and homeschooling are both on the rise in the United States. "The demand for educationally oriented preschool services has been fueled by the growing awareness of the developmental importance of the early years of life; the years from three to five are increasingly seen as an auspicious time for children to begin their education" (The Future of Children). Homeschooling is currently the fastest growing educational alternative to public schooling in our country. Online education is a primary reason for the rise in homeschool enrollments, as online schools offer a variety of learn-at-your-own pace curriculums, making homeschooling easier than ever before. "The Jubilee Academy Pre-K Program is blazing a new trail in education by combining preschooling, homeschooling, and online learning," says Diana Dahl, Curriculum Manager for Learning By Grace, Inc., the management company for The Jubilee Academy.
Diana Dahl also commented, "Although there are resources on the Internet for parents teaching Preschool students, there are very few comprehensive academic programs currently available. The Jubilee Academy's new interdisciplinary Pre-K courses will provide parents with an opportunity to facilitate academic and skill development in a way not feasible through isolated websites and lesson plans."
"The Jubilee Academy has developed a comprehensive biblically-based program unseen in the Preschool market. Not only are we offering Pre-K daily lessons with videos, pictures, coloring pages, recipes, websites, and audio links, but we are providing academic support to assist parents in their quest to provide a quality homeschooling education to their children, something completely new in Pre-K online education," added Mimi Rothschild, CEO of Learning By Grace, Inc.
Children ages 3-5 are in a vulnerable developmental stage that will affect them for the rest of their lives. The Jubilee Academy hopes their comprehensive Preschool Program will benefit the lives of these young children.
The Jubilee Academy is the premier provider of revolutionary Christian PreK-12 online education solutions. Through its parent-led online school and 110 extensive course offerings, The Jubilee Academy provides engaging educational support to Christian home school families worldwide. http://www.TheJubileeAcademy.org
