We believe that the time is overdue for a radical change in the way in which children are educated.
Children are not happy at school and are not learning the things that they will need to know.
Change is starting to happen and is being brought about by parents becoming more directly involved in the education of their children - and in education becoming centered around the home instead of round the school.
Parents in this situation need appropriate teaching materials and we believe that it is right that these should be produced by small, family-run or community-based businesses that share the same goals as themselves.
Who are we?
We are a family of five. We moved to Brittany, France eight years ago in search of a more rural setting in which to bring up our children. We built a house and have a smallholding.
Our professional experience in publishing, combined with the use of new technology, means that we can run a small publishing company from our home.
This enables us to make high-quality books with short print runs, available at a lower price than would be possible for a large, commercial company.
Four books of sums for were published in 2002..
The follow-up to One-to-One is due to be released soon - June or July, 2003.
Are we Looking for Material to Publish?
Why a new educational publisher?
Existing text-books do not work outside of a conventional classroom situation.
Books that are designed to meet a school curriculum and prepare children for tests and exams do not appeal to children who are self motivated in their learning.
There is a need for more educational books that are interesting in themselves and which do not rely on being tied into the school curriculum for their justification.
