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 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

Zoma helped my son find his self-confidence

We are so grateful to have found Zoe and the amazing programs she offers at Zoma Creative! She helped my son find his self-confidence and love of learning again, after a year of stressful change and bullying in the public school system. He has thrived in her Jr PBL program, which gives him the opportunity to learn with a small group of lovely kids and complements our home schooling. I love bringing him to Zoma Creative Farm, knowing he’s spending time outdoors and learning to care for the animals and gardens has been so good for him! Zoe is an amazingly supportive teacher, always inspiring and weaving her wisdom into multi dimensional lessons. Her husband Matteus is also a wonderful teacher who helps the kids follow their curiosity and supports them as they learn to work independently in Projects club. I can’t say enough great things about the Zoma Creative programs, the abundance of options makes it possible for each student to find a combination of what works best for them. It is truly personalized learning in the most supportive environment.
