Selecting a Core Studies Level for My Family


When selecting the most appropriate CORE STUDIES level for your family, it is essential to take the needs of your eldest child - and the needs of your youngest child - into consideration.
A Core should be selected so as NOT to hold your eldest child back, but be sufficiently accessible to keep your youngest child interested and involved.

If the age gap between your eldest and youngest child does not exceed 4 years, then we endeavour - as far as is possible - to place families on a single CORE STUDIES level. However, if the age gap between the eldest and youngest child is in excess of four years, it is advisable and preferable to operate two separate CORE STUDIES levels, especially if the eldest child or children are able to operate largely independently of you, the parent.

Using our CORE STUDIES Selection Chart (below), consider the following:

  • The age of your youngest child versus the age of your eldest child. Where do the two ages fall?
  • How academically-inclined is your eldest child, compared with your youngest. Please bear in mind that generally speaking, younger siblings tend to cope better with a Core level that is relatively higher than their ideal age group core, simply due to the “trickle down” effect. As elder siblings learn material, younger siblings have the benefit of learning from their elder brother or sister, thereby understanding, learning and retaining far more than would normally be the case.

Please prayerfully consider the Core choices before you; and may the Lord grant you wisdom as His perfect will for your family unfolds.

Testimonials

  • "I just have to say thank you, for putting together a brilliant curriculum.  I love using it and found my feet after only 3 weeks at it… I find it so do-able. God is good and His grace is enough."
    Elouie (Gauteng, SA)
  • "We have been using (Curriculum X from America) for a number of years … and I really was not sure how Love2Learn would compare. I think that you do have a world class product… thank you for a well thought out, well prepared, easy to use curriculum in which you can see and feel the hand of God at work."
    Bron (W. Cape, SA)
  • "Thank you for all you and your teams very calculated planning in the engine rooms which take a big burden off us, the moms and teachers, in our home. "
    Bianca M (Mpumalanga, SA)
  • "It is now 4 years... and my trust in Love2Learn's guidance and curriculum has grown.  I cross paths with a lot of homeschooling moms from other countries and when they discuss their curriculums and what they are doing I am so blessed by the peace and contentment I feel about the curriculum I have chosen. I have seen my very active, social son become an independent learner who wants to work things out on his own, who has finally learnt the art of paying attention, and who has become very comfortable narrating back both orally and written."
    Shirley (Sumatra, Indonesia)
  • "(My daughter) received her IGCSE results… She took 7 subjects, 5 of them using Love2Learn. We are delighted with her marks. For the subjects she did through Love2Learn, she got 3x A's & 2x A*."
    Jenny (Lusaka, Zambia)
