Homeschooling is becoming increasingly popular amongst modern Australian families. In the past, home education was considered to be the best option for families on extended holidays or for families living in rural areas. Today, many families living close to cities and local schools are opting for home education due to reasons such as special needs, bullying and religion to name a few.

Whether you are currently homeschooling OR wanting to homeschool here are a few resources that may help you on your quest to homeschool:

Social Media

Making the move to home education is a big and complex decision. Make sure you know of a support network in your area as they can be valuable to your home education journey. If you don't know of any homeschooling groups where you live, Facebook is a great place to start! Join relevant groups, ask questions, find information and if you're lucky, you may even find a homeschooling group in your area!

One Facebook group in particular is "The Educating Parents Homeschooling and Unschooling" run by Beverly Paine. It's a closed group so you will have to answer a couple of questions to join, but they are extremely helpful and have quite a few reading materials you can download.

SHEN - Sydney Home Education Network

Another excellent resource to look into is SHEN - Sydney Home Education Network. These guys make it easier for home educators to share and organise events with other home educators. For a small yearly membership fee, you will have access to all events and benefits SHEN has advertised. It's a wonderful place to find local swimming and athletics carnivals, concerts, activities and educational resources. Its absolutely a "must have" for all home educators in Sydney.

HEA - Home Education Association

HEA is a non-for-profit group that supports and encourages home educators. They provide help with establishing public liability for event organisers, insurance for work experience and help with government registration. If you have any questions or concerns regarding homeschooling, HEA offer a website full of information, regular newsletters delivered to your email and an email/phone you can contact.

NESA - NSW Education Standards Authority

Here you can find all the relevant forms and information packages you need to register in NSW for home education. It also has a complete list of syllabuses for all stages of learning.

If you are currently homeschooling feel free to share any further tips you may have for parents thinking of taking the step towards home education.
