We believe strongly in education options that work best for each individual family. While we believe that Streams of Hope Christian School is a great educational option, we recognize that it doesn’t work for all families. Because of this, we want to empower and support families who decide to homeschool.
We offer a wide range of homeschool support and educational opportunities. Click on the buttons below for more information:
Streams of Discovery is a homeschooling co-op where families discover new things and make new friends. We gather on Friday afternoons from 12:30-4pm for one class and community time. Classes span wide age ranges (e.g. 11-14 years olds) and are taught by parents. We have 15 week sessions each fall and spring that are themed.
We are a community:
Commonly asked questions about our Co-Op.
The Co-Op is made up entirely of families working together to produce a learning and social experience for children of all ages. We meet on Friday afternoons and hold classes with snack and break time in the middle. Parents help by teaching or assisting in classes. The students are divided by age, not grade, which is often a 2-4 year age range.
Each session is usually themed and classes are created to be interesting, engaging, and educational. Our hands-on classes will include cooking, speech and drama, history, art, science, music and movement, finances, and more.
Lastly, and most importantly, we are a Christ-centered community. We pray and encourage children to see God working in their lives and to live as He would have them do. Streams of Discovery is an additional flexible enrollment option of Streams of Hope which operates within the structure of the constitution and by-laws of Heartland Church of Fort Wayne. Heartland is part of the Anglican Church in North America (ACNA) in the diocese of the Great Lakes (ADGL).
We try to keep costs low and as simple as possible. We charge $100/semester/family. This equals $5.88/week/family.
Included in this cost is free access to Streams of Hope's special events including art mornings, special presentations, participation in graduation, and discounted rates for afternoon classes. See the Executive Director for more details.
Co-Op runs with the Streams of Hope Academic Calendar from August through May. We meet on Friday afternoons from 12:30-4pm.
Co-Op meets at Streams of Hope Christian School located within Heartland Church. Our address is 1025 Vance Ave. Fort Wayne, IN 46805
12:15 -12:30 pm: When you arrive at Co-Op, you’ll park at door 3. When you enter the building, you will check off your family name, fill out name tags for the kids, and grab your lanyard. From there, you will come to the small sanctuary, find an open spot to set down your family’s belongings while your kids find their friends. Please stay in the sanctuary and assist with watching the kids.
12:30 -12:45 pm:Co-Op Opening: This is where we’ll come together, pray, and prepare for the afternoon. Kids will be dismissed to their teachers and will walk calmly to their classes.
1:30 - 1:45 pm:Kids are brought back to the small sanctuary for break and snack. If the weather permits, teachers may take the kids into the courtyard or to the parking lot playground. Kids are then taken back to class for the second half of their class.
2:30 - 3pm:Community Time: 2:30pm is our official closing in the Small Sanctuary. We will begin clean up at 3:45, so between 2:30 and 3:45, families are encouraged to stay to chat, play, and just spend time in community.
3:45 pm:Clean up and good-byes! Many hands make light work and we need to put the classrooms and shared spaces back in order before we leave.
The homeschool coordinator works with the Streams of Hope Executive Director to set the classes and curriculum. After a parent is assigned a class, they then come up with the curricula under the guidance of the Coordinator. We have access to a wide range of curricula through Streams of Hope Christian School.
The kids are grouped by age and not grade level. As the Coordinator and teachers get to know your child, they may decide to keep your child with younger or older children to give them the best experience. We want your child to be comfortable in their classes in terms of peer interaction and academic levels. You may also provide input as to where your child is placed.
We follow the Streams of Hope Academic Calendar. We will notify you by text and email if we cancel Co-Op. Co-Op may be cancelled because of inclement weather, special events or unanticipated emergencies. When weather is an issue, parents will receive a text indicating whether Streams of Hope will be delaying or cancelling classes. If we do not cancel or delay but parents choose to stay home, they are responsible to inform the Coordinator via text.
Because Co-Op families are homeschool families, Streams of Discovery is a supplemental homeschool program meant to support and enrich your homeschool experience.
This is not a drop and go program. Parents will serve as teachers and teacher assistants. Parents are to remain in the building at all times.
Streams of Hope half or full day students can opt to participate in the co-op under the direct supervision of the Homeschool Coordinator in place of their parent or guardian.
Yes! We believe strongly in making sure both the children and adults involved in Co-Op are safe! All adults that will interact with children at the co-op are required to be background checked and go through Ministry Safe Training prior to working with children. Heartland Church performs all background checks and provides the Ministry Safe Training.
