What is Homeschooling?
Homeschooling is educating your children in your home.
When a family chooses to homeschool in Queensland they can:
Enrol in a Distance Education School
Public and Private Schools
This is the link to the Queensland Governments ‘Find a School’ directory.
Register with the Home Education Unit
Take charge of their children’s education, organising subjects, lesson planning, teaching and evaluating progress. There are many philosophies and styles and each homeschool family will have a different one. Not to exhaust you here are just a few.
I don’t sweat over the different methods but if asked I would say we would be ‘Secular Eclectic’ or how I put it ‘we just do school’. We derive ideas, styles, and tastes from a broad and diverse range of nonreligious sources.
