Thinking about Homeschooling? Start here.

Are you considering home education for your child(ren)?

We have some thoughts on how to decide whether home or school is better for your children. We also have some advice on what to expect.

If you decide to home educate in the Waikato, please join our helpful and friendly network. We would love to connect with you on your journey.

We also recommend you visit the website of National Council for Home Educators New Zealand (NCHENZ). Go to Get Started to see a comprehensive list of answers to common questions and links to home ed support groups across New Zealand.

If you would like personalised advice or help with your exemption application, we recommend a homeschool coach.
