Yes! Brit Star Online School and Education has flexible class timings and can assist with planning out your School at Home year. We understand that some parents prefer to see a structured list of what their kids should do and when, and there are parents who prefer a more flexible, less structured approach.

Brit Star Online School and Education does not provide its curriculum to schools. Brit Star Online School and Education is intended to be used in the home as a School, but any School or Educational Institute can affiliate itself to Brit Star Online School and Education.

Your child’s learning style will be of huge help when choosing a School at Home program, that is why it is important to know your child academically, when you first start School at Brit Star. The curriculum's checklist of Brit Star will help you make an informed decision when choosing a School at Home program.

Not really. Virtual schools are online schools that are usually part of either a public or private school, therefore someone other than the parent is responsible for selecting the curriculum and ultimately the education of your child.

No. Each family is unique and it’s upto you to decide how long you want to School at Home. Remember though, it’s easy to move in and out of School at Brit Star, so you can School at Home for a few years, and after that send your child back to school either after Preschool, Nursery, KG or Primary.

Brit Star offers online activities wherein the students can connect with one another virtually and can interact on a daily basis. The Teacher-in-Charge of the Batch takes utmost care so as to develop the child’s socialising skills by introducing to one another and letting them interact on a daily basis. If you enrol your child to Brit Star, School at Brit Star groups can be helpful in connecting you with other parents who can be a sounding board when you have questions.

This is a common concern for parents. At Brit Star Online School and Education, parents can monitor the progress of their child themselves. They can discuss their issues with teachers and Brit Star support. Ultimately it’s up to your parenting to best determine how you will measure progress.

One of the great aspects of School at Brit Star is the flexibility it provides. Unlike traditional schools where children follow a strict schedule, School at Brit Star allows your children to learn when it’s convenient for your family. Since School at Brit Star offers a more personal approach to learning, you’ll find that your children don’t need to spend 6 hours a day sitting at a desk doing work. Depending on your child’s grade, they will typically spend between 2-4 hours a day School at Brit Star. Depending on your preferences and extracurricular schedule, you can also decide to School at Home 5 days a week or less.

This all depends on an individual family’s budget and the grade/ course(s) chosen for the child. There really isn’t a specific amount that it costs to School at Home. Regardless of where you are financially, it’s important to try to avoid one of the biggest mistakes families make: spending a ton of money without knowing how their kid learns best. That’s why Brit Star Online Education is a good option. We offer month-to-month billing and the option to start, stop, and even pause your membership at any time. We also offer counselling and based on that we offer customised and tailor made subsidised payment plans on individual requests.

Parents who have made the decision to School at Home can start anytime. You don’t have to wait until the traditional school year ends. Once you’ve taken the necessary steps to enrol your child to Brit Star Online School and Education, it’s important that you take some time to get to know your child from an academic perspective. Many families usually take a few weeks to discover how their child learns best, when their children are most productive, which subjects they excel in, which topics pose more of a challenge, etc. Doing so will help you determine when your child is ready for a course at Brit Star,

Many families new to online schooling think about it from the literal perspective. Does the school supply what I need? Which workbooks should I buy for the kid? How do I set up my child’s learning room? Our Brit Star Online Education’s free tutorials for parents, tell about all this. We also have one-to-one counselling sessions with Parents and Kids to understand their objectives and help them choose their desired grade/ course. We also offer customised and subsidised payment plans.
