Our friend Natasha wants to reach out and give guidance to anyone wanting to home school children but don't know where to begin Thinking of an alternative for your child’s education, other than the school system?
I have been home educating my children for 5 years. If the time has come for you where you have decided that school may no longer be the place for your child anymore, and you are looking at alternative ways of educating your child, then the home ed route may well be for you.
A fantastic place to start is by visiting this website where there is a wealth of information. It covers home education on all levels and answers many questions and concerns. https://www.educationotherwise.org/starting-out/Starting Out - Education Otherwise Home education is the default position for all children, as a parent must register at a school if they wish to use one. It is of equal status in law to school education and a parent may elect to home educate their child at any point during the child’s compulsory education years. www.educationotherwise.org There are many rewarding alternatives to educating your child at home. It doesn’t have to be within a school system. It wasn’t an easy decision for me to make 5 years ago; - Can I do this? Am I allowed to do this? How do I do this? What about my work?etc. (Questions I know most of you will have) but I know with the whole of my heart that it was one of the best decisions I have ever made. Family life altogether is one of the most precious of things. Making beautiful memories daily together. I won’t go into my story here as to why I chose to home educate or how I go about it, but I am more than happy to answer any questions and help in any way I can.
