What do you mean by "Custom Education"?
Simply put, education isn't a one-size fits all endeavor. At MindSprout, we know all children learn and progress differently. That's why we offer programs that are customized to each child's unique needs.
What is your teaching philosophy?
We utilize best practices from many teaching philosophies in order to customize our instruction to each child's unique needs and learning style. As educators, we are flexible in our thinking and keep up to date in our methodology and training. Hands-on activities and experimentation are highly valued in our program, and we encourage children to explore their interests whenever possible.
Why are your classes so small?
We like to keep our groups and classes small. This allows us to provide more concentrated and customized instruction for your child. It also allows for a closer sense of community. We believe the social and emotional learning facilitated in this setting is just as important as academics.
Where are you located?
We are in Old Town Spring, and we serve The Woodlands, Spring, Tomball and the Greater Houston area.
What are your qualifications?
12+years experience working with students from Pre-K to 6th grade
B.S. in Child Development and M. Ed in Curriculum and Instruction
State certified teacher in EC-6th, ESL, and Gifted/Talented
What are your safety guidelines?
MindSprout has a COVID-19 screening policy and follows CDC recommendations on mask wearing. Additionally students' temperatures will be taken upon arrival. Parents are asked to keep students home if they have shown COVID-19 symptoms within the past 24 hours.
Our classrooms are equipped with air purifiers with UV-C light technology and our facility is sanitized in accordance with CDC guidelines.
What curriculum do you use?
MindSprout Hybrid School is a secular and eclectic homeschool program. All of our curriculum is very hands-on and engaging. We do not believe in relying on workbooks and worksheets. They are used sparingly and always in addition to a hands-on exercise. We use science of reading aligned curriculum and our math is Montessori based.
How is your hybrid school different?
When we plan your child's weekly lessons, we keep their individual needs in mind. There will be similarities to others in your child's lesson plans, but there will also be areas where their specific needs are addressed. For example, if your child is working on mastering a specific math concept, extra practice for that may be included. Maybe your child loves and excels in science. In that case, we may include a special science lesson they would enjoy.
