Home School Meetups in Winter Park

Posted on Apr 08, 2016

If you home school your kids, you know that this unconventional form of schooling can be very rewarding--and very challenging! As a parent/teacher, you're not only responsible for your children's academic progress, but also the other things school provides, from physical education to socialization. Fortunately, you can give your kids an exciting afternoon of active play and help them meet some new friends by planning an event right here at Monkey Joe's in Winter Park! 

Our indoor playground and party center can handle kids events of all sizes, from impromptu play dates to big private events. Read on for some fun home school event ideas, and book your event online now, or give us a call at 407-478-4000 if you have any questions. 

Winter Park home school events

Reward good grades with an Honor Roll party.

One of the most common reasons parents choose home schooling for their kids is to ensure that they are getting the personalized academic development they need to be excellent students. If your kids are working hard on their school work, reward their effort by throwing a party! Join together with other parents in your local home school co-op or group to make it a quarterly or monthly event. The kids will have a blast, and the parent/teachers will appreciate the kids' newfound motivation with their studies!

Head to Monkey Joe's for active play.

Kids need at least an hour per day of physical activity, but at Monkey Joe's, they'll want to jump and play for hours on end thanks to our super fun and interactive indoor playground. Buy an Annual Pass or Frequent Jumper Card to save on regular admission and make us a part of your family's regular weekly routine. 

Host a home school mixer.

At its best, home school exposes kids to all sorts of people and experiences they would never have met in a traditional school, but at its worst, it can be isolating and lonely. Make sure your kids are getting plenty of interaction with other children by arranging a home school meetup or mixer to meet other home schooling families in Winter Park. Your kids may make some new friends, and you can compare notes and share ideas with other home school parents.
