Our Home Education Programmes
About the programme
In our home education programs, we integrate social circus as a dynamic and enriching platform for learning, emphasising its nurturing, inclusive, and supportive environment.
Through circus arts, we facilitate the development of essential life skills such as physical awareness, teamwork, collaboration, creativity, and skill focus.
Participants engage in a multidimensional learning experience that extends beyond traditional academic boundaries. Social circus becomes an invaluable tool in breaking down social barriers, offering a unique space for individuals, including those who may be non-verbal or communicate through physical means, to express themselves and find their place within a supportive community.
This approach fosters a sense of belonging and encourages personal growth, creating a holistic learning setting where the circus arts serve as a conduit for both skill-building and social integration.
