Whether you are looking for a few enrichment hours per week, or seeking a community experience for your family, we are committed to providing a number of flexible options to meet your needs. Homeschooling families with children of all ages are welcome to participate at Patchwork via our half-day or full-day programs, through our K-5 Afterschool Program, or through various parenting and education workshops offered throughout the year.
We believe that combining homeschooling with a part-time school experience is an excellent way to achieve a truly individualized, and yet community-based experience for your child and your family. Therefore, we aim to support homeschooling families in finding creative ways to engage in our community.
Homeschoolers are more than welcome to enroll in any of our programs, as part-time schedules are offered in all of them, and many enrolled families are registered homeschoolers.
Registering as a Homeschooler
We want to help you understand your requirements under Colorado law, so we are providing information here from the Colorado Department of Education’s website. However, you should be sure to check the information for yourself in case of any recent changes:
If your child is under the age of six, they are not required by the state to be enrolled in school full time, so you may choose to enroll them for any number of half or full days (or full-time), without being required to fulfill any additional homeschooling requirements.
If your child is six or older, they are required by the state to be enrolled in school full time, so you may choose to enroll them at The Patchwork School full-time, or choose to register as a homeschooler, which can include any number of half or full days at our school. If you choose this latter option, you will also be responsible for all of the other requirements under Colorado homeschooling law, which we will support and assist you in completing.
My husband and I have started homeschooling our two children this past year. it’s gone well so far and we have enjoyed having a direct hand in our children’s education.Anna (Homeschooling Mom)
In doing some research, we came across your page, which has been helpful to our family in learning more about homeschooling – thanks!
As a project I had one of my kids do some research on homeschooling. She found a number of other sites that also gave us some good information and I wanted to mention one to you that Caitlyn found which was also helpful to us: Homeschooling Guide.
