Log Cabins for Education

Friday 15 January is the National closing date in England for parents wishing to apply for a school place for their children to start school in September. Whilst some of our customers may be using the next few days to make a final decision on their order of preference, others may be looking at the alternative of home educating their child. Perhaps they are already home educating older children, or perhaps they want the freedom to completely tailor the learning experience to meet the needs of their child. I know for me it seems completely inconceivable that my little bundle of energy could be rocking up at the school gates in a smart new uniform just a few short months from now.

It is estimated that over 50,000 children in the UK are home educated with that figure rising by 80% in the past year. There are many theories about why this quiet revolution is happening such as the pressure on school places in some areas, the seemingly lack of top performing schools or maybe difficulties at school. Home education can take many forms, visits to the shop for basic maths, visits to museums or art galleries or more traditional tutoring taking place in the home. Increasing though customers have approached us looking for a log cabin that can bring that learning experience right into their very own garden. Setting up one of our fantastic log cabins as a garden school creates a distinction between time spent learning and time spent in the home. Your log cabin could provide you with a great space for creativity and a separate space for writing, you could have an area for resources, create a little book nook and still have lots of room to invite other families round to join in the fun of learning through living.

Below you will find our top 3 most popular log cabins customers have purchased with education in mind along with some quick facts for you. Further information on any of our log cabins for sale can be found on the individual product listings on our website or if you would like to discuss your log cabin needs with us please contact us on 01362 470075 and any member of the team would be happy to help you.
