Online Homeschooling -The Smarter Education System

Online Homeschooling or home education is when the education of children happens outside the premises of an actual school or at a place structurally different from a typical school. It could be at home or a variety of different places other than the boundaries of a school. They are usually conducted by a parent, tutor, or an online teacher with methods that are less formal and more personalized according to the needs of the child, which is uncommon at a school. The structure of homeschooling depends on the party conducting the school or the attendee that is the student, it can go from highly structured to a more open and free form of schooling.

Online Homeschooling- where school comes home, smarter and better

In India, Homeschooling is fairly a new concept despite being practiced in the west for a long period of time. India is a country where traditional schooling still prevails at a very large scale giving little to no importance to practical and choice-based learning which can make it seem boring, rigid, and even outdated. Yet, there has been slow but steady growth in homeschooling in India, all thanks to Edtech that has strengthened the argument of homeschooling over traditional schooling. Through Edtech many resources had been made available which were not present earlier - making homeschooling more accessible and easy for everyone involved. Homeschooling altogether is a very different concept, where the child is under the guidance of a parent or hired facilitator who instructs the child throughout the learning process, and learning is based on associations made at home, real-life experiences, and lively discussions that are conducted on a personal level. It helps the children learn better than traditional schooling as there are one-to-one discussions and the pace of every child is given due consideration.

Benefits of Homeschooling


While traditional schooling can be confined by its boundaries, Homeschooling possesses liberty, offering choice-based learning and most importantly gives the child a better scope and space to develop to their full potential.
  • The parents can plan their child's academic learning according to the skills they want to nurture in the child. They are no longer confined by location to select the pedagogy and facilitator or their choice.
  • The parent can personally keep a track of his child's development as the sessions are online at home.
  • The academics can be structured according to the interests of the child.
  • With personalized attention, the child can take their own time in understanding which makes their concepts and basic foundations strong.

  • Parents and teachers can evaluate a child's learning abilities, modifying the curriculum where it can, and helping the child better adapt where it cannot, to help them better connect with the learning goals achieve learning outcomes at their own pace.
  • The flexibility and freedom in homeschooling helps in finding one's passion and taking time in practicing to excel in it.
  • Homeschooling done right also provides positive socializing with peers and adults outside of the family unit.
  • Homeschooling lets children be free from peer pressure, unlike any traditional schooling.
  • Homeschooling gives children their time to pursue personal interests and talents, which is sometimes not possible in traditional schooling as they are burdened with school work.

India, a country that has been conditioned into thinking that there is only one way of getting your child educated that is through traditional schooling, the concept of homeschooling may seem revolutionary for some. Hence, it can prove to be revolutionary, and here lies the silver lining.

Morning Glorie is a preschool and facility that provides online homeschooling all over India. It is one of the best preschools in Gurgaon. While the pandemic has forced the kids to stay inside and has made it difficult for them to step out of homes for education, it has given parent and children alike the opportunity to explore homeschooling as not just an alternative approach to learning, but also a supplemental one to traditional methods of learning. Today, the way we do certain things has changed, specifically the education sector. 

Morning Glorie is now providing homeschooling for all kids under 5 years of age. We believe in "learning by experience" while focusing extensively on the use of readily available household objects - learning from home should not be equivalent to burden for the parent. With the growing uncertainties about the coming situation due to Covid-19 here are a few reasons why you should opt for homeschooling :

  • Safety, security, and well being of the children
  • One to one sessions and discussions
  • Ability appropriate learning programs with a holistic learning approach
  • Flexible and need-based learning
  • Keeps your child away from peer pressure even while helping them develop social skills

  • Helps you plan ahead - with the schedule for the day shared in advance, the program makes planning easier.

We aim to partner with such parents and mothers that want to give quality learning and growth to their children and want to develop their children's talents and passions, which we do perfectly through online homeschooling in India. Our program also helps the children interact with a diverse peer group, as children from different parts of the country with different cultural backgrounds come together. As it is said, let them spread their wings and fly!

Toddler Milestones - Language Development and the Role of Stories

A while back, we had done a post on Toddler Milestones and Language Development.  In this post, we will more specifically examine the role which stories play at this crucial stage in a toddler's life. Language development can broadly be divided into two parts. Comprehension Language development in children starts with understanding or comprehending what is being communicated, and this starts as early as the fetus stage of life. Children can listen to sounds before they are even born, and they learn to distinguish the different sounds around them in the first couple of months of their life. Over time, they begin to understand the exact message that is being communicated to them through the medium of speech in the language which is being used at home. Which is why children as young as 2 to 3 months and certainly around 6 to 7 months seem to understand what their parents or other caregivers around them are saying. Speech Speech is the next step involved in language development, and ty

Stories for Values and Good Habits in Children

Do you have a favourite book/series? Have you ever thought about why it is your favourite? Even when the entire story line is not perfect (it can never be), you are drawn to it over and over. You maybe drawn to a different book in different stages of your life, but there may still be some that will remain eternal favourites. If I reflect on my favourite books/series, the main attraction for me has been associating with the characters, figuring out what was best in them, associating with those traits in myself, and trying to emulate those that I thought I didn't have as yet. Hermione was who I thought I was - follow the rules, do everything right, strive to be the best. But Fred amd George had traits I wanted in me - dare to follow your dreams, don't compare yourself with others, it only matters that you are the best version of yourself. Howard Roarke taught me that it is important to have conviction in your own work - it does not matter what others think, so long as you are hap

Pushing Children Beyond Their Comfort Zone - Striking the Right Balance

My mother, who is also my partner at work (this may seem odd, but we do complement each other in our skillsets, this makes us a good team), takes some of the batches in our online homeschooling in India program. These are live and interactive sessions, where parent and child attend together and are part of small groups of children for guided learning sessions. She also handles communication with the parent body, something we have learned is a very crucial aspect - at times, it is our responsibility to give the right guidance to parents as much as addressing queries which they may have. So two instances happened in the last couple of months, where a concerned parent called us up to tell us that their child was only interested in some of the activities, which seemed more fun in nature, while they tended to either show disinterest, or run away from some of the other activities.  Their query to us had two dimensions -  1. Should the nature of activities be changed? 2. Were we pushing the c
