Especially for Homeschoolers Virtual Co-op
We can’t join in-person, but we can have a great deal of fun online! After all, everyone loves to see their friends, and what’s more fun than learning and exploring together?
EFH Clubs are designed to expose children to new ideas, cultures, hobbies, and skills. Parents serve as our club captains. To get a feel for this unique learning adventure, please peruse our non-COVID program written up below.
During COVID, we’re going to zoom together!
Children will join together for three clubs – one on Monday, one on Wednesday, and one on Friday. By dividing up ages into invidual time-slots, we are striving to make your life easier! First of all, families with limited devices may participate! Also, if you are the parent of children of various ages, this schedule allows you time to work with an older or younger child while the other is on their EFH club.
If you would like to support our co-op with one hour of volunteering each week, please plan to captain a club. We need you!

EVERY FRIDAY FOR SOME
10:30 AM - 2:30 PM
especially for homeschoolers
EFH is a unique opportunity for homeschoolers, ages 3-13, to come together and indulge in stimulating academic and creative experiences in a friendly, relaxed, interactive environment! EFH is held from 10:30 AM - 2:30 PM
Our hands-on clubs
are led by very talented and dedicated parents like you! Combining our skills and talents, we will work together to create a series of clubs for our children that enables them to combine different mental mindsets in a new and useful way!
Our EFH program will include monthly field trips. This year, our field trips include a docent-led tour of the Freer Art Gallery followed by lunch at the Sakura Steakhouse; a customized program at the Port Tobacco Riverwalk to see the Eagle’s Nest; Q?rius programs at the Museum of Natural History; and more!
Each student has the opportunity to participate in four 45-minute clubs (with a 15-minute recess between each). The clubs are divided into four age groups. Subjects change each term and are dependent upon the expertise of our parents, who act as club captains.
If your child needs some downtime in their schedule, they can relax in our Storybook Playroom.
We do not focus on the core curriculum, but rather alternate subjects that are essential to a complete education: world cultures, science exploration, creative writing, Home Economics, public speaking, to name a few.
