After 23 years of continuous teaching, I am in my final year. It's time for a holiday, and the ultimate homeschool field trip. We're off overseas for 3 months of exploring and learning (well, it can’t be helped).
As a result, I will not be able to run Education Reformation to full capacity during that time.
From now until mid December, you will NOT be able to:
Place a special order - this includes Singapore Primary Maths 3rd Edition (You CAN order the US Ed.).
Place an overseas order.
Order Maths Manipulatives Kits.
Expect timely deliveries.
We will not be able to fill orders for schools.
What will continue, but changed slightly:
Email contact - This will stay the same, and you will still be able to contact me. Replies may be delayed due to time differences.
Deliveries - My eldest and very capable daughter, Madeleine, has very kindly offered to send out the orders, but this can only be done ONCE A WEEK. I will still be able to manage orders, but not send them.
*** Our office will be closed from 4-24 November while Madeleine is on holidays. Orders will resume being sent on 1 December.***
What you can do to make life easier on all of us:
Orders - You can place your order as per usual, but if you can put your order off for a couple of months, please do.
While we are doing our best to make this as workable as possible, there is always the chance that something will go wrong. We ask for your patience, and careful planning on your part to avoid any mishaps.
Education Reformation was started to provide Australian home educators with original Australian homeschooling curricula. After many years of home educating my five children, and running two different homeschooling supplies businesses for 2 1/2 years at one stage, I came in contact with literally hundreds of homeschooling families around the nation. I loved meeting those families and learned so much from them and their unique experiences! Always knowing that there was a desire among these families to use Australian material, I finally got to work writing something. I wanted to do something with my experience and collection of ideas for younger and up-coming homeschooling parents, and our ebooks are the result of that desire.
My first priority was to make a product for my fellow Australian home educators. Although not a Charlotte Mason purist, I found that I was practising many of her methods before I even knew that they were attributed to her. Many of them do come naturally to mothers and so it was with me. My books incorporate CM methods as well as much of my own developed methods. My goal was to make a product that: honours God, is of high academic standard and quality, is easy to use and a blessing for the parent and child alike, and that really works.
We have endeavoured to raise our three sons and two daughters in the nurture and admonition of the Lord, and have been home educating for 20 years. A Christ centered education has been our desire, rather than child centred. Our eldest son, now 24, has never been to school except when he entered Monash University, from which he graduated with First Class Honours. He is now doing his PHD. Our next two children, daughter 22 and son 20, are both shining in the hospitality industry. Our daughter also achieved a Certificate IV in Small Business Management at age 18 and has published her first book: Copywork from Classic Literature. Our talented youngest son (18) is studying photography at RMIT and daughter (15) is still being educated at home. Our children are growing into men and women of good character and we thank God for the blessing he has made them to us as parents.
Besides our own publications we also offer a carefully selected range of other curricula, which will steadily increase as we are able to add more products to the website.
