We joined Classical Conversations' Oxted community 3 years ago. I heard of the classical education model from a friend who mentioned the Well Trained Mind book before having a meeting with [my local community director]. So far, we have only experienced the three cycles of Foundations. My two kids, 9 and 6, love CC materials, especially the songs which they learn each week. The Oxted community is a very warm society. Although we are the only Chinese family there, we feel so welcomed by the other families in the community. My daughter will start essentials from this September. We are so looking forward to the start.
