Join Village Child Project founder, mother, and communitarian Janne Campbell to explore your options for educating children in community.

About the event

We all want the best for our children. Where do we begin when deciding which form of education they will receive? The options seem endless, and the pressure to choose the right path for your child can be immense. From conventional schooling, to community private schooling, to microschools, to Self-Directed Education — you want to be sure you are choosing the right option for the benefit of your child and your community.

How your community plays a role in that decision is also a factor. What kinds of conversations do you need to have with your community? Does your community have the capacity for on-site education? Do all of the kids participate in the same kind of schooling? What about the wide spectrum of learning needs? Each community is different and has its own approach for educating their children.

Join us for this workshop to learn how to navigate through all of the educational options that are available to you and come to a decision that feels right for you and your community.

In this workshop, you’ll:

  • explore your options for educating children in a community context
  • understand the difference between Community private school vs Private and Co-op homeschooling/unschooling vs Microschools or ALCs
  • learn how to plan for the spectrum of learning needs

About your presenter

Janne Campbell

Janne is passionate about creating a world that works for all, including children. As an unschooling mother of two, devoted student of conscious parenting and nonviolent communication, she serves the Great Turning by sharing what she knows about raising children in joy, respect and connection. She is particularly drawn to supporting inquiry around the delicate ecosystem of family and children within the context of intentional community. When she isn’t making snacks and holding space for big feelings, she’s fermenting, baking, cobbing, foraging, growing or skinning something and trying to start a (un)school. Janne is the founder of the Village Child Project where she consults with communities and other organizations who wish to support the liberation of children within the container of community.
