Home Schoolers in Geraldton

 Goodmorning, i was wondering if there was anyone homeschooling from Geraldton at all.

Literacy / Maths Home Tutor

 Would anyone like a weekly session with a Literacy / Maths Home Tutor? I'm based in Freo but am happy to travel up to 45 minutes to your home. I'm a Registered Primary School Teacher and am very experienced in a one -to - one work with children who have difficulty reading. Many of the children I have tutored in Maths have increased significanly in confidence and ability. I also love to work with parents to prevent and overcome reading difficulties and to help open up the interesting and enjoyable world of print for their children.


Hi would love to meet up with some other families who are home schooling we are interested in a waldorf approach and would love to organize craft and art and nature play with other kiddies cooperatively. I have an 8 year old girl and a 4 year old boy.Hope to near from you. kathy

Hi, I'm exploring options for my son

 Hi everyone I am exploring homeschooling as an option for my son who has just turned 9 because I'm not convinced the school environment he is currently in (although a small, independent public school) is the most conducive to his learning. Actually, I've told him very little about homeschooling, yet he has learnt enough from other kids to be asking if he can be homeschooled instead of going to school.

Looking for like-minded families Freo and SOR

Hello, I'm a mum to two daughters aged 5 and 2. We're brand new to homeschooling and natural learning and are keen to meet some like minded souls! Thanks, Sarah


Hi We are thinking about homeschooling our 2 boys (7&9) as our catchment school is so ridged, so many rules and trying to control everything it's ridiculous! They both perform very well but are not happy there and have a constant battle to get them to do the mound of homework given every night. Not to sure how to go about it or even if if would be a better option for us, we are going travelling at the end of the year for six month and planning on unschooling them while away as we feel they will learn so much from our adventure. Thanks Sus

Homeschool regular group


I have a beautiful 10 year old boy (very into nature!) I am just about to start on the homeschool journey and wanting to know if there are any groups that meet up for plays ad coffees. I am in Melville so anywhere down towards Freo way would be good.



German Familiy Moving to Perth

 Hi everyone,

I have three Kids Noah 5, Nala 3 and Philine 1. We are moving to Perth in February 2015 and looking for new friends to start the adventure of homescholling together. The kids understand a little bit Englisch- but not much... Thats what worries me. How can they learn englisch without going to school or Preschool?

Anyone in kalgoorlie?

Hi all,

Thanks for having me :)

We are travelling Australia with our 3 kids (12, 10 and 3) at the moment and we've been unschooling for about 4 years.

Our bus needs some repairs so we're kinda stuck in kalgoorlie at the moment.

We'd love to meet some fellow unschoolers and cheer ourselves up a bit. We're staying at a backpackers in town and have no transport.
