“Education is not just the filling of a pail but the lighting of a fire” – William Butler Yeats. In most countries, it is now compulsory for all children from 5 years of age (Grade R) to attend school until Grade 9 (14 years old); and to receive formal education based upon the educational policy set down by that government. Childrens House brings you valuable aids to assist ALL teachers in lighting the fire of curiosity in children who are working through the syllabus; after all……. “Every child deserves a champion, an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection and insists that they become the best that they can possibly be.” – Rita Pierson

Don't just teach your kids to read, teach them to question what they read. Teach them to question everything.
