Can I Homeschool in a HomeFirst™ Community?
Every parent wants their kids to have the best education possible and for some parents, that means homeschooling. If you’ve decided that homeschooling is the right thing for your child, that’s something you can absolutely do in your manufactured home. The manufactured homes you find in HomeFirst™ communities can be quite spacious, ranging in size up to 2,300 square feet, so you can have plenty of room to teach. If you have an extra bedroom in your home, you can always turn it into a classroom!
If you’re doing an activity that requires more space than what’s available in your home, you’re always welcome to head on over to the clubhouse in your HomeFirst™ community for the day, where you’ll have all the room you’ll need.
Kids are kids, whether they’re going to a public school or are homeschooled, and they need to take a break during the day to run around and play for a little while. Many of our communities feature playgrounds, which are perfect for homeschooled kids who need to have a recess! Or they can always play a game on one of the athletic courts found in your community.
Many children who are homeschooled do attend public schools for certain subjects. If this is the case for you, you’ll be glad to know that all of our communities are located near excellent school districts with excellent teachers, high test scores, and acclaimed athletic and arts programs. This way, your child will be able to enjoy the benefits of both types of education.
When you homeschool your child, it’s great to be able to bring your kids out into the community and participate in educational and cultural events. Many of our HomeFirst™ communities are located in and near places with lots of museums and educational centers for kids. For example, our Ridgewood community in Milford is about a 40 minute drive away from Bloomfield Hills, where you can visit the Cranbrook Science Museum or the Cranbrook Art Museum. Our Hartland Meadows community is close to Ann Arbor, where there are lots of museums and cultural events.
If you decide to homeschool your children and live in one of our HomeFirst™ communities, not only will you have an affordable home, you’ll have a lot of great resources to work with right in the area!
