Our mission

Our Mission

At Little Mountain Pai Community Homeschool it is our mission to offer an alternative to mainstream education for the families of Pai; providing a safe and engaging environment, with a child centred approach to learning. We deliver a bilingual curriculum that includes academic, creative and life skills with the role of the educators to guide and nurture the children to become independent and innovative thinkers caring for their community and environment, themselves and each other.

How?

  • Immerse students into a bilingual environment - English and Thai are valued equally.
  • Learn in small groups with a high teacher to student ratio, within a fluid learning space and within nature.
  • Provide structured choices that nurture collaboration and learning through imitation and problem-solving in a safe environment.
  • Encourage expression, imagination, curiosity, and respect for one-another and all things.
  • Value routine at the heart of every day to build a sense of well being, belonging and safety.

“Skills and values essential to thrive as happy, fulfilled and active individuals”
