What is the unschooling approach and why do you use it as an educational philosophy with older children?

In an unschool learning environment children are active participants in their learning. Because we don’t have a strict curriculum children have the opportunity to follow their own interests and passions, learning in their own unique ways.

“What we want to see is the child in pursuit of knowledge, not knowledge in pursuit of the child.” – George Bernard Shaw

Unschooling, at its core, is simply play based learning and play is the best way for children of all ages to learn.
