we have a 6 year old and a 6 month old..and i am looking at getting teh CAMI education software and was wondering if anyone else had used it?
I had someone out yesterday to show it to us...and it looks good, but i do think the menus are a little confusing.
It is expensive, however, it is a payment plan over 3 years and available to us until our youngest is finished Year 12 so a good investment when you look at it over time.
My 6 year old is advanced ( eg they tested him yesterday on Year 4 work and he got over 90% in comprehension) but does need to focus on the easier stuff (he gets bored and does not bother trying ) and LOVES sitting and doing educational games so it would get used.
They talked about it helping with applying for scholarships...which we will be doing in Year 4 and if it does help him get one it would be worth more then the program costs. However, i am not getting the program to "guarantee" a scholarship and it will not be the end of the world if he doesn't get a scholarship and i will not pressure my boy to do more then he wants to. he is already in private school so will not miss out either way (although paying the fees is a stretch and it would be awesome to save some money lol).
So...any experiences? good bad? what were the tutors like?
