Information Sessions

“When we started homeschooling, I felt as though I had tucked a child under each arm and jumped off a cliff. Imagine my surprise to discover we have wings!”
Maura Seger

For those looking into home-education, Auckland Home Educators provides public Information Sessions.  It’s a 1½-hour shortcut to your research into working out whether you and home education are a match.

  • CHALLENGE your thinking on the meaning of ‘Education’!
  • CONSIDER a lifestyle of discoveries, relationships, flexibility, freedom and fun!
  • BE INFORMED about some popular misconceptions!
  • PUT AWAY traditional and experiential views of ‘Education’!
  • CLEAR AWAY assumptions and come with an ‘outside-the-box’ mind!

These one-off, relaxed, informative and confidential sessions are led by an experienced home educator in a group of up to 12. As we all did, when we first started, you’ll have lots of questions like:

  • Why commit to this alternative?
  • Is there a curriculum to follow?
  • ‘School at home’ or much more?
  • What kind of support is out there?
  • Access to qualification routes?
  • What about ‘socialisation’?
  • What are the pitfalls?

And much, much more…
This is such an important parental decision to make, often at a stressful time.
We understand! This is the beginning of a marathon, not a sprint!
