What is KONOS Kidlets?
KONOS KIDLETS is a program designed by Carole Thaxton for grades 1-3 (ages 6-10). The children meet once a week 9:15-2:45. They are instructed by three experienced teacher-moms. Meanwhile, first-year Kidlet moms meet for 1 hour 9:15-10:15 with Carole Thaxton for weekly support (babies and toddlers may attend).
This class is more than a playgroup but less than a formal program requiring homework. Appropriate for this age group, it is cooperative enjoyment and enrichment while absorbing new information and skills, readying them for more formal learning in Konos Kids (grades 4-6). We hope to keep their interest and enthusiasm, not sap the delight of learning.
Why choose KONOS Kidlets for your child?
Kidlets (grades 1-3, usually ages 6-9) are at a pivotal point in their education. These are the years of determining whether the child will become a life-long learner. Some educational programs steal a child’s love of learning. Many forget the origin of all goodness, beauty, and truth. This won’t happen with the Konos Kidlets. This program will immerse the children in the goodness of God, the beauty of creation, the excellence of great stories, the joy of discovery, the value of Godly behavior, and the thrill of accomplishing cooperatively.
We believe that the formative years of learning should be at home, but parents are asking for more help. They want supervision of their curriculum and social interaction for their children at this age. Also, they trust the KONOS leaders to recommend resources, sequence, training in character, etc. In other words, “I want to home-school but I need help!”
