So, you’ve decided to start Homeschooling. Now what?

why-we-choose-to-use4

1. Firstly, you need to decide whether or not you’re going to register with the Department of Education (DOE). We choose not to, for a great multitude of reasons (I’ll do another blog post focused on that) and you’re not legally required to do so.

2. Decide on what type of curriculum you want to use (What would work best for YOUR family? Boxed/eclectic/CAPS/CM/Waldorf/classical/unschooling (a blog post on those also coming up!)?

3. Buy/download your chosen curriculum.

4. De-school yourself and the kiddos! Play, discover, learn, LIVE! And most importantly, FORGET EVERYTHING YOU KNOW ABOUT ‘SCHOOL”!  😉

Enjoy this journey. Don’t stress about it.

Yes, you’re not a teacher. You don’t have a college degree. So what?

You are a parent. That already makes you more than qualified to teach your own child (And for everything else (higher grade Math and Science) there’s a tutor!).
