We obligate each child to do their best to engage with the material, content, and opportunities put before them. Many caring adults have spent time curating and organizing top-quality, enriching experiences designed to open minds, deepen cultural understanding, and build connections between the children and between your child and the host country. We will respectfully but firmly guide all children to listen and participate in each activity put before them. Out of respect for different abilities, we will never force a child to remain engaged and sitting for an unbearable length of time. Each hub will offer at least two options for children who cannot sit for very long; this might be a Lego corner, a reading nook, a gross motor play area, or an art table. If your family follows an unschooling approach that eschews obligatory activities, please read more here on our About All Hubs page
