Anybody elses children signed up for homework support classes in morges area?

The school are offering the extra support classes 3 times a week and I just wondered if anyone has done this in the morges - echinchens can you choose the location to go? Are they worth going to for the kids do they do more than the homework as I know that my son would finish the homework given in a short period so just wanted any personal experience at all ?

I am a newbie in the area so I unfortunately don't have any answers for you but I am curious to know what is the minimum age for a child to enter to this program? Thanks in advance.

hayley, our kids are not at that stage yet but could you post the outcome/experience of your choice as we will be in that position at some point.

cheers

Re: Anybody elses children signed up for homework support classes in morges area?

Not sure if it's exactly the same thing but at my daughter's school (Meilen, German-speaking part) they offer a homework support session three times a week from the fourth class.

For my daughter's class it's after school but other classes offer it at different times.
My daughter likes it because it means she does her homework straight away, it's social and the teacher is there if she's got questions. She doesn't have to stay the whole time and she can also use the time to get other stuff done.

I like it because I'm teaching myself all afternoon and I don't have to worry about whether it's done or not.

But I've got friends whose children haven't gone because it hasn't been run very well (not controlled very well, it's noisy etc) so, as always, it comes down to who's in charge!

I haven't had any experience but my friends had somewhere in Lausanne - - a teacher came drunk and smoked dirrectly in the classroom, no help just double waste of time because of redoing homework at home
- a teacher was a canadian student his french was hard to understand
in both cases parents had to quit these classes
may be at first to meet the teacher or local parents?
