The Rafelsia Homeschoolers consist of an elite body of learners who are highly motivated and readily meet the challenges on today's world. This body of diverse learners progress individually at their own pace and enjoy the company of peers who are high achievers each with their own different style of learning. The focus of our homeschool programme is to provide a high intensity intervention programme so get our learners ready to be re-integrated into mainstream school. While we use materials that are relevant and closely match the learners' academic needs, the focus is NOT on delivering a specific curriculum. The focus of our homeschool programme is to train the cognitive skills that are in deficit in each learner.
Here at The Rafelsia Homeschool, we embrace diversity in learning and believe that education is the RIGHT of ALL children and not a priviledge available to a few. We believe that it is in welcoming all learners and guiding them appropriately to match their individual learning styles that the true genius in every learner can be brought out because our view of learning is simple. Each learner progresses according to their own level- zone of proximal development.
The environment is matched closely to the home environment so as to extend the highest level of security and comfort that all learners crave. It is in dealing with primary needs and developing them that secondary needs such as academia are enhanced. We follow, where possible, a combination of the British and Malaysian National Curriculums, here at Rafelsia.
Learners over the age of 18 are encouraged to explore new horizons with our continued support by embarking on short online learning courses.
Our learners are exposed to a variety of subjects which include Art, Music, Math, Reading, Spelling, ICT, Appreciation of literature, Science and Social Studies. In their free time, learners engage in activities which enhance their thinking, analytical and problem solving skills. We offer them a wide variety of games such as Boggle, Scrabble, Chess, Monopoly, Sudoku and word search challenges which are fun and exciting for our learners. Competition is at its highest during these times.
Activities, such as Pilates, Dance and Music, bring out hidden passions in our learners. These provide them with opportunities to engage in hands-on activities which they normally would not think of trying out for fun, yet have proved to be highly rewarding and satisfying to the soul.
Our dynamic team of staff, assures parents that their children succeed at every level of learning. A consultant learning therapist is at hand to deal with any delays in learning, that might exist, and is ready to provide learners with additional learning opportunities where necessary.
