WHY HEADSTART IS DIFFERENT

SELF-PACED

Every child is unique and our study programme is tailored to each individual. We celebrate difference and believe children should be given the freedom and space to fulfil their potential in a safe, fun and informative environment.

HOW IT WORKS

HEADSTART SCIENCE is a core Headstart course. Students are introduced to new ideas aligned with the National Curriculum, they learn and become familiar with scientific vocabulary and revise their understanding of new content in small bite-size daily homework assignments accessible online.

No-nonsense and straightforward homework assignments are supported by a weekly class at the centre and regular hands-on practical workshops which are included in your membership.

Can not make it to Oxford for a weekly class? No problem. Online only courses include weekly assignments, regular learning reports to parents, motivational prizes to children and technical/learning support by the assigned Headstart instructor.

Children are encouraged to study regularly and independently. Parents’ role is vitally important as the guardians of children’s healthy learning habits and supporting their study routine from an early age. Parents receive regular updates on the child’s progress and the topics covered.

HEADSTART also offers courses in: MATH, ENGLISH, EARLY YEARS, READY FOR SCHOOL and THINKING SKILLS. Find more information on the COURSES page.
