About Us

 

Monday Homeschool Classes (MHC) is a cooperative of families. Our mission is to provide enriching and cooperative learning experiences to our children, in an environment that promotes the love of learning and human connection. We welcome and encourage diversity in all areas, including (but not limited to) race, gender, family composition, learning styles and abilities. We welcome feedback from our members about how to support all of our families and children in their journey. Our Program Director is Laurel LaPorte-Grimes.

To further our goal, we have partnered with the Lutz Children’s Museum to offer a variety of classes and other programs.  Classes take place on Mondays at the Lutz Children’s Museum and Oak Grove Nature Center in Manchester, CT.

      Hi Ann,

      Sorry it took me a little while to get back to you. We have a variety of classes, depending on what our parents are interested in offering and on what we search out and find. This past session we had several classes for ages 13 and up (most of our teens range from 14-16 yrs old at the moment). You can see a complete list on our Spring Schedule. Not sure yet what the line-up for the Fall will be, just depends on our population and what they’re interested in. If you’re interested in receiving more information about our teen activities and classes in the fall, send me an email at committee@mhcct.org and I’ll add you to our email list.

    Hi- Are you looking for teachers to do any type of literature or writing courses? I am interested in putting my daughter in the homeschool program in the Fall (if space permits) and I am a certified English teacher who is currently teaching writing at the college level. I would love to offer a class if needed. Thanks!

      Hi Rachel,

      We could very well be, it just depends on what classes our families are looking for. We did offer an informal writing class this session called Bad Books, Good Writing where the kids chose a book they considered bad, read it, talked about what made it bad, did a variety of writing exercises, and are in the process of revising a section of the book to make it better. They might be interested in a more formal writing or literature class, or they might prefer to stick with something more informal. Either way, I’d be happy to talk with you more. Send me an email at committee@mhcct.org and we can talk about the possibilities.
