Time4Learning - the review

            If you are a parent who homeschools or does a lot of afterschool activities with your child / children, you will like the Time4Learning program. It is an online home education program for homeschool, afterschool and summer study, for grades Pre-K through 8th.  As a parent , you can track your child's progress and be easily involved in their activities. This program will work for a lot of families, as it is very flexible and gives your child the ability to learn in a comfort of their own home. It is a web based program, so no need to download the software or buy CD's. It is student-paced, which to me is very important.        
         Recently, I had a chance to try it for 30 days. I signed up my 5 year-old daughter for a 1st grade level and my 2 year-old daughter for a kindergarten level.

               Audrey, the oldest one, had lots of fun with science. She can count to 100 and more, she knows her alphabet and sounds of the letters, so the language and math part wasn't really challenging her. But she loved to learn about animals, weather and time.

               Vivienne, our 2 year-old, liked the characters, liked singing songs with them and repeat the nursery rhymes, so the language part was the most fun for her. She can count to 12 and knows the alphabet, but science was a little to advanced for her.

               I signed them both up for levels higher than their age groups indicate. Because they learn a lot at home, I wanted to see on what level they really are. I realize that 30 days is not enough to do every activity, but we focused on those subjects that were the most interesting to us.

              The program has a room for improvement, but overall I was very pleased with it. I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for an online education program for their children.

  1. Hi there! Great review! :) We are fans of Time4Learning too. It helps that for our family, EVERYTHING is better if it's online, lol. I like that you can play around with the grade levels without any hassle. Even though you placed your older daughter in the 1st grade, you would have access to K and 2nd grade you guys can go up or down if need be. That applies to all grade levels too, so if she is really advanced and you wanted to put her in 2nd grade language arts and math, but keep her at 1st science you can. :)

    Enjoyed reading your review. Glad T4L worked well for you guys. Hope the rest of your homeschool year is great!


  2. Hi Katie!
    I agree - the fact that you can chose the level for your child is a big plus.
    Thank you for reading. Have a wonderful day!
