Harmony's Education Centre caters for many different aspects of education of children and young people.
Whilst the Education Centre includes facilites for children who are deregistered from school, the Centre also caters for those who have been excluded permanently or temporarily from traditional state or public schools.
Harmony Flexi- School is for those young people who have been de-registered from school (Home schooled) or those on a full time role at school (Primary and Secondary) but need some additional or alternative provision and core curriculum support.
Home schooling is when you choose to educate your child at home. It is legal within the UK and you don’t need to be a qualified teacher to do so.
Children who are home schooled receive all their education from their parents or carers, sometimes with extra support.
Social, Emotional and Mental Health difficulties (SEMH) is a collective term to describe a range of complex and chronic difficulties experienced by many children and young people.
SEMHcovers a wide range of special educational needs. This includes children and young people with e.g. emotional disorders and conduct disorders/hyper-kinetic disorders.
Raising an infant, child and teenager can be an overwhelming task. Although babies may look straight forward, infants require a significant level of attention and care in order to grow up into a healthy person. On top of the day-to-day needs that young infants and children have, each child has their own unique personality.
Harmony have a wide range of support services both at home and in their Education Centre in Maidenhead, Berkshire.
Children's learning and behaviour can present overwhelming issues to parents and educational facilities and Harmony can offer tailored services to meet some of the most complex issues.
