We think our Resource Directories, published by Always Learning Books, together with this website, offer a comprehensive insight into Australian home education... and so do the hundreds of visitors that drop by, download and read our directories and articles every week!

  • "I loved all your articles, Beverley. They are really interesting, practical and personal." Amber
  • "Congratulations on a terrific website. It's a great resource." Steven
  • "Anything written by Beverley Paine is a must, reading wise she is full of great advice but more than that, she makes homeschooling sound so wonderful and cosy (which it is). Beverly's information is always helpful, and seems to come at just the right time." Loretta
  • "Beverley, you share such honest and wise words. Your strength and insight is truly an inspiration." Sophie

It's our ability to write content that directly speaks to the needs of our readers that brings them back. We truly believe that home education can deliver the best education possible!

We can't promise that advertising with us will automatically boost your sales - we know how hard it is to build a business - however, exposure on the one of the largest, trusted and most popular home educating websites in Australia has to be a good thing, right?

Plus, you know you'll be in good company. Because we are committed to providing quality and relevant information we are naturally choosy about whom we invite to advertise with us. That puts you in a select group of quality educational or homeschooling suppliers - people, like us, who really care about the home educating community.

And at our very affordable prices you'd be nuts to miss out on connecting with our readers!

Downloaded over 4500 times during the first half of 2021 our Directories are a definite hit with families looking for quality information. 

When you choose to advertise with us your ad will appear in our popular Introduction to Home Education Resource Directory plusSupport Groups Directory, due for renewal after one calendar year. It will also be promoted regularly on our Educating Parent blog, currently enjoying 7,500 followers. 

Distributed for free to new members of our popular social media group, and promoted regularly in posts, your ad in our Introduction to Home Education Resource Directory and Support Groups Directory has the potential to reach over 19,000 group members 

The Educating Parent’s reach, like home education, is continually growing with typically over 15K post reach each month, averaging 6000 active members each day!

It's our ability to connect with empathy and understanding, and to write quality and useful content that directly speaks to the needs of our readers, that brings them back.

Line listings are FREE and include business name, link, and brief (50 words) description in one or more categories.

Together with the support of my family, my aim is to help parents educate their children in stress-free, nurturing environments. In addition to building and maintaing this website, I continue to create and manage local and national home educating networks, help to organise conferences and camps, as well as write for, edit and produce newsletters, resource directories and magazines. I am an active supporter of national, state, regional and local home education groups.

Welcome to the World of Home Education
and Learning without School!

We began educating our children in 1985, when our eldest was five. In truth, we had helped them learn what they need to learn since they were born. I am a passionate advocate of allowing children to learn unhindered by unnecessary stress and competition, meeting developmental needs in ways that suit their individual learning styles and preferences. Ours was a homeschooling, unschooling and natural learning family! There are hundreds of articles on this site to help you build confidence as a home educating family. We hope that your home educating adventure is as satisfying as ours was! Beverley Paine

Home education is a legal alternative
to school education in Australia.
State and Territory governments are responsible
for regulating home education and have different
requirements, however home educating families
are able to develop curriculum and learning programs
to suit the individual needs of their children.
