We're a full time working family (we don't have any other choice financially) living in Oakland. I have a 12 year old (7th grade) and a 9 year old (3rd grade) who have been traditionally schooled in public schools. We are limited financially, and even if we weren't, aren't interested in a traditional private school. I was wondering if there is a such thing as an unschool or free range learning or even loosely structured coop for working parents who want something different for their kids? I also have a 3 year old who attends a montessori day care 4 days per week. Thank you in advance. I'm off every Tuesday and every 3rd wednesday since I have a non-traditional career.
