The BCHEdders Co-Op is an informal learning environment for all school ages. Parents/Carers are required to be present and expected to help serve during the day - leading assembly, making teas, running sessions, praying / talking / supporting each other etc.
We meet twise a month in term time on the 2nd and 4th Monday of the month. We ask for a block commitment payable in advance. They day runs from 9:30am to 3:30pm.
Sessions include weekly activities such as sport, art, science, literature, music appreciation etc. Whatever God provides through the attendance of a family will undoubtedly find its way onto the timetable.
All costs are paid in advance and charges are set per family regardless of family size. The current cost is £10 per family per week or £6 for a half day.
If you are interested in joining in, please contact us and we will arrange a trial date for your family.
Approximately once a term we meet in the evening to pray about the ups and downs of our lives as home educating parents and to encourage each other.
For more details about when the next prayer meeting is arranged, please contact us.
Once a year (at the appropriate time!) we get together as a group and give the children the opportunity to do all the things usually associated with Christmas – hear about God and the birth of Jesus, take part in a scratch nativity, sing carols, listen to stories, play party games and eat lots of yummy food. Sometimes we have also included the BCHEdders Craft Competition.
At the end of the summer term, we get together in a local park for an informal sports day with various races – running, skipping, egg and spoon etc – and even welly wanging! All ages and abilities are gently encouraged to take part.
