Welcome to the Western Australian Natural Learning Network!
We are a free community providing support and information for the unschooling/natural learning subset of Western Australian homeschoolers (and anyone else interested). Here parents and kids can chat and organise events and meetups to connect and learn.
If you have recently registered, please post an introduction in the Welcome Mat forum so we can get to know you (and so the admin realises you're a real person). Please be aware that the Welcome Mat is publically viewable so be careful what you post :)

Hello everyone. We are new to unschooling and are looking for a community of friends (potentially life long). Children are 3.5 and 1 so we are only just getting an idea at this stage but have no family and very little friends whos children wont be participating in school. I am concerned that my children wont have enough social interactions with other children of all ages, therefore am in search of playgroups, friends, meets amd communities for our, and other unschooling families to come together in hopes to create friendships, connections and learn from and with one another.
We are a family with two kids aged 4.5 (boy) and 1.5 (girl). We have been doing natural learning with our kids, we really love it and we plan to continue this way. We are interested in some meetups around the area (playgrounds, parks, zoo etc). We have not been to any meet ups yet but we hope to do so soon.
My son is 15 and has chronic pain and we are looking at hooking up with other families to do some lessons. Any one around Dunsborough Busselton?
We are starting homeschooling next year. Our kiddies are 4 and a half (girl), 2 and a half (boy) and 10 months old (boy). Would love to meet up with homeschoolers anywhere really, but live in Bentley. Hope to meet some soon!
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.
Hi there, I have been homeschooling for 17+ years in Geraldton. We'll be doing it for many years to come, as our youngest is only 15 months old :) I'm happy to meet anyone new to town or homeschooling. While there are a lot of us here, there are no organized, regular meet ups, just small personal groups.
I'm new to homeschooling and would love to hear from other parents of teenage boys who live north of the river.
I look forward to hopefully meeting some of you :)
Hi all :)
Mel and Riley here from Northam. Riley is a 5 year old boy who is very active and social. We would love to meet some homeschooling families in the area and catch up for coffee/playdates/swapping info etc
