Home Education Groups

Even though everyone's Home Ed journey is different it's great to get out in the community and meet up with other Home Edders. It gives us mums the opportunity to give each other ideas and find out about events and allows the children to socialise.

When I first started home educating years ago there were not that many of us around and not many people had even heard of Home Education back then. I first registered with Education Otherwise which gives you access to a national contact list, divided by county of local groups. I also signed up with the West Yorkshire Home Education Yahoo group where Home Educators frequently post events. Facebook also has many Home Ed groups and there are many Whatsapp groups to join too.

Some Home educators plan visits and workshops to various places so it's worth being on groups to look out for these educational opportunities.

Last week I booked an Art Workshop for 20 Home ed children and their parents. The theme was 'Animals' using recycling materials and their work will be displayed in an exhibition. This was also a great opportunity for those completing Arts Awards
