Orders/Legalities

What are my rights in terms of the law as far as homeschooling my children is concerned? And what do I need to do in order to remove them from school?

Each country has its own laws and regulations that govern homeschooling.
We would recommend that you contact the Home-Schooling Legal Defence Association in your country in order to get clarity on what these are.
In South Africa, you can contact the Pestalozzi Trust in this regard.

Their contact details are as follows:

Kindly note that the decision to/not to register, rests with you, the parent and NOT Love2Learn Curriculum. We would encourage you to seek advice before making your decision.

In regard to removing your children from school – there is no hard and fast answer to this, save to say that a school may not interfere directly with your decision. At best they may require you to sign a “release form”, which states that due to the fact that your child is no longer under their “jurisdiction” from an educatioaln point of view, you release them - with immediate effect - from the obligation of having to educate your child. This we believe is quite justifiable; and given that you are going to be the person responsible, you should have no qualms with signing such a form.

What is Love2Learn's free Bridging Programme?

Our Bridging Programme is supplied free-of-charge as a courtesy, to help to tide you over - and MAKE THE WAITING FUN while you wait for your Love2Learn order to arrive! We dispatch the Bridging Course via email only. The material covered in the Bridging Course, while constituting valuable learning, is not the same as that covered in your Love2Learn Core Curriculum. It is not supplied with an Engine Room or teacher guidelines, but is designed as a scheme of work to be covered for each subject per week over the 8-week period whilst you wait for your order to be ready. It requires you to obtain books from the library or surf the Internet; and to develop your own lesson plans around these books, until such time as your Love2Learn Order is ready for delivery. It does not replace or attempt to replace Love2Learn Curriculum. It is designed to be a tool to assist you in the transition period from “school” to “homeschool” and to provide you with themes of study while you await the arrival of your Love2Learn Order. In essence it also means that you as a family will not have to spend weeks staring at each other across the dining room table, whilst you await the arrival of your Love2Learn Curriculum resources.

Is there a cut off date for orders for any given year?

For Grade 00 - Grade 9 students, Love2Learn will accept orders at any time of the year, right throughout every academic year.
Because we import a large number of our resources, we work on an eight week lead time for fulfillment of an order, ready for dispatch (and subject to books and resources being in print). We would recommend that in order for you to receive your order by early-December, and in turn be in a position to start in mid-January, you should place your order by early-October at the latest!

Students who are wanting to study Grades 10/11 Level (combined) and Grade 12 Level - both are completed over 18 month - need to be cognoscente that Imperial International College (a division of Love2Learn) offers two intakes per year - viz. January and July. This aligns with the British Institutions's two exam-sitting opportunities per year (May/June and Oct/Nov) for most of their subjects. Families will thus need to time their ordering and preparation accordingly. To this end then, orders need to be placed ideally by no later than early- to mid-October in order to qualify for the January intake; and early- to mid-April for the the mid-year intake. 
However, over the Christmas/New Year Festive season we have a cut off date (usually around 12 December) due to the fact that our offices close and re-open the second week of January. (Please contact our office to confirm our cut-off date for any given year).

Is it possible to order only part of Love2Learn and not the entire Curriculum?

Certainly! Love2Learn Curriculum offers a substantially broader, richer and more varied curriculum in regard to its extended Core Subjects and Disciplined Studies with a wider subject range when compared with mainstream schooling. You have the flexibility to purchase a single subject or as many subjects as you wish, for any given academic year. Please note that unlike our extended Core Subjects and Disciplined Studies, our Core Packages are not divisible and need to be purchased as a single unit. You still have the flexibility to add any number of Disciplined Studies to your Core Package, if you so desire.

  • "I would like to express to you all that we as a family are truly grateful for the curriculum Ivana and the team have put together.  When the Lord told me to home-school Cayleb, I did not even know what it meant.  I went to find out,  came upon the L2L Saturday morning seminar,  and knew immediately that was it.  We have been with L2L since grade 3 and intend to continue through to Grade 12.How amazing God is!!  He showed me, and we have not turned back!!  The more I hear of schools elsewhere, the more I know it was indeed His doing. Cayleb too is very happy homeschooling and has no desire to change it. We are exceedingly grateful. THANK YOU ALL FOR A JOB WELL DONE!!  May the Father bless you richly for being diligent and bold to step out in faith as He leads."
