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!
Example Homeschool Learning Programs
This collection begins with examples drawn from the Paine Family homeschooling archives. Beverley began home educating her children in 1986, although it could easily be argued that she had been consciously teaching her children since their birth. It was in 1986 that the family sought and gained approval from attending school for their eldest child, which formalised the process.
The examples set out on Homeschool Australia are provided to help you to see that no two homeschooling families educate their children in the same way, and that even within the one family learning programs change from year to year. It can even be different for each child!
You are welcome to use these sample learning programs to help you devise your own homeschool curriuclum. Please don't copy them verbatim, but think carefully about your children's educational needs and learning styles and create a curriculum tailored to your own individual family. This is the only way to successfully homeschool.

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 support of national, state, regional and local home education groups.
A gift of any size, small or large, is greatly appreciated.
I am currently giving this site a much needed facelift!
