Getting Started With Homeschooling
Twenty years later, the face of homeschooling continues to change since Stephanie began homeschooling. One of the most exciting things about homeschooling is the freedom to create a learning environment that reaches the hearts of your children. This is a free workshop to help families who are starting out and those who are hoping to create a vision for their homeschool.
Field trips and nature walks are great with your little ones, but how do you keep your homeschooled teen engaged? Many homeschool families have questions about transcripts, post-secondary and keeping the hearts of their teens. This workshop looks into the role of homeschooling for your teenager.
