Zoma Creative

Welcome to Zoma Creative!

Creativity, critical thinking, respect and community. These are the foundations of our vision at the Zoma Creative. We believe that learning should take place in a rich and  and grow in community that our lives may contribute to a more thoughtful, caring and hopeful world.

Zoma Creative is a Tutoring/Learning Center. We act as a bridge between the claimg_7395.jpgssroom and home learning environment. Zoma Creative primarily serves Cowichan Valley by assisting with the educating children of families who value a “unschooling” education. We help to educate the whole person, nurturing the intellectual, physical and creative potential in each child.

ABOUT ZOMA CREATIVE

We were in the Valley Citizen!

We are a Classroom and urban Farm designed for creative kids.

Homeschool students and public students alike have access to weekly classes ranging from cooking, art and theatre, to Montessori-style math and reading, academic courses with a visual, hands-on learning focus, and so much more!

Zoma Creative was created by teacher Zoë Clement and her husband, Matteus, after years of studying the very best aspects of education. Together they have created a beautiful and grounded space that allows for student-centered, free-thinking, project-based learning… and… delicious food!

WHAT IS 2018 HOMESCHOOLING?

Community support for individualized learners!

Homeschooling can look like a lot of things in today’s world. What type of homeschoolers do we support? Everyone from “kitchen-table” family learners looking for social enrichment to creative and outside-the-box learners who just don’t fit in the regular classroom.

Zome Creative offers a variety of Homeschool Enrichment opportunities, from cooking and art to reading and math. Our homeschool students are a part of a larger Cowichan Valley homeschool IMG_7426community, rich with opportunities and mentors for modern-day learners. We are primarily a “tutoring” centre, but also offer Nature School (Friday), Cooking (Wednesday), Art Classes (Wednesday), Theatre for Life Skills (Tuesday) and Project’s Club: mechanics, sewing, and Maker [STEM] Skills (Tuesday).

One-to-one tutoring is also available in all subject areas throughout the week.

The advantage of homeschooling today:

  • Distance Learning courses for accreditation
  • qualified teachers for individualized learning environments
  • funding for homeschool courses, programs and opportunities

MYTHS about HOMESCHOOLING:

  • it is difficult to transfer to public/private school or college/university
  • parents must direct most or all of the learning
  • public schools are not able to support the learner
  • funding is not available

Zoe transformed my kids

My kids have transformed since attending the junior place based learning program (and various other programs and workshops). It truly is amazing to have such an inspired teacher help our kids develop their curiosity and imagination. Zoma Creative has been an immense support and I am so thankful my boys have this opportunity. The parents, teachers and students are incredible!

Zoe brings enthusiasm, creativity

and a hands-on learning experience to her classes. We are so pleased to have this resource in our community – the junior project based learning and Spotlight theater programs have been wonderful.
