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

My Kids Love school now!

The day I met Zoe Clements at Zoma Creative was one of the best days of my life!

I knew in my heart I found the perfect place for my kiddies.

My son Jack was diagnosed with ADHD and was put on Ritalin so that the public school could function with him in the class room.

I was 100% against the drugs but my X husband put him on Ritalin without my consent.

My heart broke every day watching my son die slowly inside.

He hated school, he was exhausted all the time, had no appetite, he had outbreaks of violence, depression, and he was not happy.

When I looked in his eyes I could not see his soul. It was a dark, sad, lonely place.

Jack is full of life and happier than I’ve ever seen him!

His three favorite things to say are..
“I’m so happy”,
“Is there school tomorrow”,
and, “I love you so much mommy”!!

I know I made the right choice and found the perfect school for my kiddies..

Thank you Zoe and Mat for the amazing programs you offer at Zoma Creative Learning!

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.
