homeschooling 5 year old Freo area

Hi everyone - we are new to homeschooling in 2017 and are keen to meet up with other families in both the Fremantle area and wider Perth.  Ideally it would be great to link up with a group or two that meet up on a somewhat regular basis out in nature.  We are homeschooling our 5 year old boy.

Home ed rockingham area

Hello, I have been thinking of home educating / Unschooling off and on for a few years, my son is 7 and taking him into such a structured and rigid environment each day is difficult for me. Just looking for help to get started, is the ed dept getting tougher on applying and registrations? Do i need to give reasons to them for my decision to homeschool? Feeling nervous to take the plunge... Regards

Homeschooling in Fremantle

Hello, I'm Emma, originally from Yorkshire, England. I'm home schooling my 9yr old skate-mad son in Fremantle until May of this year. I'm looking for activities, visits etc for home schoolers in the area (or anywhere nearby accesible by public transport) and hopefully also a skate buddy for Reuben (we're at the main skate park most mornings). Nice to meet you!

Homeschooling and Centrelink


I've been considering homeschool for my 8 year old for about a year. The older she gets the more she seems to struggle with school. Not the work, she is really intelligent, but more the schedule, demands and just the way everything is done. She's very sensitive and just doesn't seem to fit in the public school environment. Emotionally she is struggling. I wonder if homeschooling would suit her better.
