Residents in Huntsville are so fortunate that our community is highly-supportive of homeschool families. There is a wealth of resources in the Rocket City that offers so much for these families who choose home-based learning for their kids.
That’s where Play, Create, Discover, & Learn comes in.
What is Play Create Discover & Learn?
According to their website, Play Create Discover & Learn is “an inclusive cooperative education center that facilitates a creative, collaborative community for Northern Alabama families.”
How fun is that? That description alone is enough to make me want to go back to school!
The 501(c)3 nonprofit organization was established in 2015 to support the Rocket City’s homeschool community. They offer classes for different ages in STEM, arts, humanities, community service, and clubs.
Play Create Discover & Learn supports a hands-on, social approach to learning. Their site says, “We want kids to gain confidence, respect, and a desire to help in their communities.” Children learn well in collaborative groups, where they can learn from each other as well as from their teachers. It’s the “students as teachers” idea, with the adults acting as facilitators to learning.
Play Create Discover and Learn promotes discovery learning taught by volunteer parents. As long as space is available and your child meets the age requirements, your child can join in and learn that learning can be fun!
Parent volunteers will receive a discount on membership fees. The homeschool co-op’s field trips are always fun, educational, and social events that is one of the best features of homeschooling.
Once you get started as a homeschool family, a world full of possibilities opens up for you and your child. You don’t have to go it alone.Contact Play Create Discover & Learn to get your family connected with other homeschool families and enjoy years of learning together!
Play Create Discover & Learn is housed at 115 McCormick Drive in Huntsville.
