New in Bunbury

 Hi there,

I'm planning to homeschool my 7 and 4 year olds starting in February. I am Irish but living in WA since 2012. I'm feeling pretty terrified about the organisational aspects of homeschooling and where to begin in terms of planning.Thanks



Waldorf Inspired Homeschool Group

  Hello, I will be homeschooling my three year old and looking for one or two other mums and kids aged 11/2 to 3 (ish) to meet regularly each week for socialising for the kids - friends they can grow up with. Also share our 'curriculum ' ideas ect. We live in the hills so it would be great if there is anyone also in the hills or farming areas, but happy to travel most places. Not interested in gossip sessions:) My daughter has Sensory Integration Dysfunction so a small regular group would be perfect. Cheers, Jackie

Home schooling

 Hi...I am a grandmother living in Denmark and for the next couple of weeks will be looking after my grandson as his mother is unwell. His mother home schools him and he is used to socializing with other home schoolers. I am just checking if the Denmark home schoolers have any activities over the next few weeks that he could be involved with.

His Poppy is bringing him down tomorrow and I have some activities organized but it would be special for him to socialize if possible.


Cheers Kathy

Natural learning homeschooling in Parkwood


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.





Hi! Ferndale or surrounds homeschoolers?

Hi everyone, We have 4 children, the eldest three school aged (8, 7, 6) and currently living in Ferndale. We would love to meet up with any nearby homeschoolers :)

Any Ellenbrook/Swan Families?

 Hi Guys,

We are just about to start the home school journey with our 12 YO son.

Would love to meet with other families and make friends to socialise with.

Our son has high functioning autism so does struggle a bit with social interaction but his hillarious jokes make up for it :)

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!
