Friendschool is a one-of-a-kind online program for kiddos ages 4-7. We provide a safe space for children to make and grow long-lasting friendships while enriching their love for God, His word and nature.
Is your child ready to dive into reading or explore the world of math? Our program is highly customizable!
Aside from meeting virtuality twice a week to explore exciting thematic units together, enrolled families can visit The Happy Learner’s Hub to select prerecorded classes and materials that suit their child’s interest and abilities. Academic topics can be explored individually and can be tailored to each individual student.
Teacher Ketita teaches all live classes in Spanish AND English! Students in Spanish-speaking countries who attend Friendschool learn English. In the same way, non-Spanish speakers learn to speak and sing in Spanish.
Come experience an extraordinary learning atmosphere where character development and object lessons that are rooted in the word of God are priority.

Hello, I'm Teacher Ketita!
I am a certified educator with 15 years of teaching experience who has fallen in love with the world of home learning. I believe that every parent can become their child's best teacher and set him on God’s schedule as they learn and grow.
Homeschooling my own children has allowed me to see first hand that learning happens everywhere, especially when you are having fun. I’ve also learned that the best early learning happens at home and at the child’s pace.Now I am on a mission to equip and strengthen families who, like me, want a front row seat to their child's learning journey.
Allow me to be your family's personal guide and support as I cheeryou on and provide you with quality learning resources and experiences.
This year, strengthen your family’s bond, spiritual and social growth, and savor the early years of childhood with Friendschool.
Join usin time for our Oceans theme this January!!

The thematic unit is then introduced by engaging students in high-level questions that lead them into a deep exploration of the given subject. The lesson extends into story time, games and share time before closing class in song.

These subjects are weaved all throughout the thematic units that children get to explore during live online lessons with teacher Ketita.
