Do you want to start home schooling, but feel as if you are jumping off a cliff all alone?
Have you been home schooling for many years and suddenly suspect that your children know nothing?
Are you worried that the BELA Bill will make homeschooling illegal?

Come to the workshop and be encouraged!

Karin van Oostrum is the presenter, and she is the Executive Manager of the Pestalozzi Trust. She has experience of the legal aspects of Home Education since 1992. In 1988 she started home schooling her eldest daughter. None of her three daughters ever attended school. Worried parents contact her daily with questions on the legal and practical aspects of Home Education. You are welcome!

What happens at the workshop?

* We discuss the basics of Home Education - legalities and practicalities.
* Questions and worries are discussed. Come and ask your questions!
* We learn from other homeschoolers' experiences.
Children welcome, but parents are responsible for their own children. Grandparents welcome as part of the family.
Coffee and tea will be available.

Feedback from previous attendees:
"Thank you for the talk yesterday. It was so informative and also encouraging for me in this early stage of my homeschool journey. I loved the emphasis on play and work, especially in a society that celebrates busy and stress as productive and leaves little time for creativity and imagination. Thank you too for your dedication to home education freedom."

"The advice that stood out for me was not to allow anyone to prevent us from exercising our rights. That has instilled in us additional confidence and we are more at ease now. We walked away feel more informed and confident!"

"It was truly insightful and a delightful experience..."
