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.

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

Newcomer and looking for a natural learners group/community

 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.
