About Play Groups Programs

Home Learner Play Groups offer specialized online peer play educational programs. Each group consists of a maximum of three home learners. Groups are designed for children ages 7 to 14 years old. We offer two types of HomeLearner Online Play Groups programs, they are:

  • RPG Online Play Groups Programs for children ages 11 to 14.

Under the guidance of highly trained professionals, these unique online programs are designed to meet the social, peer play and friendship needs of children who are home or distance learners.
