Homeschool

Collected blog posts related to Homeschool.

We also mention unschooling and worldschooling. There’s no set way to do any of these things and in our homeschool we have explored them all and adapted them to find what works. My homeschool kids are now teens and studying through Open University and online paths to iGCSEs. So we’ve been through all the homeschool ages and stages to share with you here and on our dedicated homeschool blog – here
