KidsZone Children’s Program

KidsZone is an Expo favorite and an optional children’s program that is very popular with parents and children alike! Children enjoy various activities and guest speakers while parents attend the Homeschool Expo or Homeschooling for Excellence 101. Guest speakers at the KidsZone children’s program may include animal shows, science shows, robot building, LEGO building, and much more! While parents attend Homeschooling For Excellence 101 (Thursday) and/or the Homeschool Expo (Friday & Saturday), their children can attend a variety of workshops given by speakers who will challenge them to become active and excited learners. Our goal is to remind children that learning is rewarding and interesting and that learning can happen anywhere, at anytime.
