Ready to Homeschool?

Have you ever looked at the education system and felt it’s slightly outdated?
Instead of providing what’s best for the kids, don’t you feel the schooling currently is more for the benefit of society than the actual child?
There could be a number of reasons you choose to Homeschool (aka “Home Educate” in the UK) or Worldschool. Whatever your reasons, the thought of it can be daunting and overwhelming. What if you had the support and network around you to make it possible?

FREE 101 Guide to Homeschooling

Why not start with this FREE guide to learning at home, where Syd has narrowed down conversations with thousands of families into a top 5 tips list on how to make your journey as fulfilling and smooth as possible. Either listen to the podcast or download the FREE download.
