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!
Home Education Links, Resources and Suppliers of Curriculum and Learning Materials
We invite educational and homeschooling businesses interested in advertising on Homeschool Australia to read our advertising information before contacting us. We think we've created an inexpensive fuss-free advertising package that will suit both advertisers and our regular visitors to this site.
Many of the suppliers advertising on The Educating Parent are family businesses owned and managed by experienced home educating parents. Not only do they supply curriculum materials and books they offer friendly advice and are happy to help you choose the curriculum that is right for your family. They know what works and what doesn't in the home learning environment! Help our homeschooling and unschooling community grow by supporting Australian Home Education Directory Suppliers!
Home educating families can also readily purchase materials from school suppliers or educational bookshops, art and craft shops, etc. To save money, and to promote recycling of educational resources, please look under secondhand buy/swap homeschooling boards.

Our suppliers section is still under construction - as new advertisers come on board they will be listed under their chosen category. If you know of a business that could be included, please email them and let them know about The Educating Parent. Thank you!

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.
