A Joy School membership allows individuals to have access to the materials to teach in a non-commercial setting. (For more information on commercial use of Joy School, contact us).
Instead of asking groups to form a co-op through Joy School and request a group subscription, Joy School many years ago discovered it was easier and simpler for parents to purchase the subscriptions separately. This benefits the members in many ways:
- Small groups are not priced out just because they only have a few children participating. Even groups with one or two children can still afford the curriculum. But even big groups of 6-8 enjoy substantial savings over purchasing the curriculum as a group or commercial membership.
- Each family has individual access to the materials, and should use it! Even if it is not your week to teach Joy School, we hope that you will review and discuss the lessons with your children. The songs are especially suited to at-home extension.
- When families pay for their own membership, they are usually committed, and commitment is vital to a Joy School co-op group!.
