WonderThere City Search

We’re looking for educational leaders to launch their own WonderHere in their city! Could that be you?


Join the Education Rebellion. The time for education freedom is NOW! 

The WonderHere Group is a franchised network of WonderHere Schoolhouses intricately woven within the tapestries of close knit communities, small towns, and urban cities alike all for the sake of childhood.

For the sake of redeeming wonder within education, helping parents reclaim the role of most important teacher in their child’s life, and engaging communities to serve and protect the educational freedom of all children… WonderHere is searching for the best cities and ideal leaders to own and operate their own WonderHere within their hometown. 

Through the support of a generous VELA NEXT STEPS Grant, the WonderHere Team is looking to pair a $10,000 matching grant with select leaders to provide them the resources required to open the next WonderHere!

If selected, what is included in our combined funding to empower each leader in opening each new location ?

$10,000 + $10,000 = 

  • Fees & tuition to attend WonderHere University: A 2-week training program for all new owner/operators hosted in predetermined cohorts 
    • Next Cohort date: September 
  • WonderHere Curriculum 
  • On-going support and training in the following areas:
    • Establishing a play/project friendly school
    • Marketing

    • Progress Monitoring
    • Curriculum Integration
  • Seed funding for deposit on new location or improvements on an existing location
  • Brand kit for marketing, materials, and interior design 
  • Join our network and utilize our proven systems 

It’s all been done for you . . . a formula that works! 

WonderHere Anderson!

WonderHere is OFFICIALLY expanding! Everyone help us welcome our very first franchise location… “WonderHere Anderson” in South Carolina!

Formerly known as “Upstate Homeschool Hybrid” Anderson, South Carolina, this learning community run by the phenomenal Sarah Cogswell and Hannah Gaillard started in 2022 and has been using the WonderHere Curriculum since the beginning.

We have been working with Sarah and Hannah for the last two years, and they have been eager to bring the WonderHere ways to Anderson! This is a huge dream for us, as we have a huge desire to see play-based, project-led, wonder-filled learning everywhere 💭 We are training and trusting them to lead WonderHere Anderson as we continue to love on WonderHere Lakeland!

For friends in the Anderson, SC area, stay tuned for more information as we ease into this transition, and check out WonderHere Anderson’s Summer of Wonder Camps starting in June.
