The Green House was set up in September 2014 as a home education group. It currently operates from a beautiful rural site in Bitton between Bath and Bristol, where we have geodesic dome as well as indoor and outdoor learning spaces that can accommodate up to 24 children.
The Green House is currently restructuring and is working towards becoming an Agile Learning Centre (ALC), which is very similar to how The Green House has been evolving since 2014.
We are currently concentrating on our vision, policies and the tools that we will use with children to support their self-directed learning. For updates and events, follow us on our Facebook page.
We will be a home education project for self-directed learners, supporting children to follow their passions and strengths. Facilitators will provide unobtrusive assistance, guidance, or supervision to make it easier for students to self-direct their learning. They will help children articulate the concepts and feelings they are already grappling with.
The structure of the project, as an ALC, will allow children, facilitators and parents to have a voice and take an active role in building the community they want.
To be agile means to be reflective, resourceful, and adaptable.
