At Channel we noticed that our children were learning when they were ready. It was like a switch had been flicked on. It was the academic learning, working with the enjoyment of play, that produced the complete picture.

The idea of choosing school was a big deal for us. These days there's a pressure to conform, but Channel is a place where we can be free to be ourselves and express our values.

I was a student myself at Channel. I remember we made tree houses in the bush. There was heaps of rain, the oval flooded, and we made rafts. Sometimes it's not the academic things that are as memorable.
