Welcome to the World of Home Education and Learning Without School!
We began educating our three children in 1985, when our eldest was aged five years. In truth, we had helped them learn what they need to learn as they grew and explored and discovered this amazing world since the moment 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. I hope that your home educating adventure is as satisfying as ours was!

Support Beverley support others and help to provide all Australians with REAL choice when it comes to the education of their children!
Since 1988 Beverley and her family have donated countless hours to promoting and supporting families interested in helping their children learn in stress-free, nurturing environments.
For decades Beverley and her family have donated their time and energy to support the creation and management of local and national homeschooling networks, including beginning and producing network newsletters, resource directories and magazines. She has organised and/or attended home education seminars, workshops, parent sessions, camps, expos, and spoken as a keynote speaker at major conferences. For many years she was an active member of the Home Education Association of Australia and supportor of state and regional and local home education groups.
Her readiness to 'be there' for families and to donate her time and energy to helping others is much appreciated:
