I am continuously adding to this comprehensive collection of articles and hope you find them useful on your home educating adventure. Feedback and comments welcome.

In the coming months I will be working my way through each subject area and writing fresh, new content which will also be reproduced in a reasonably priced handy reference booklet as part of our Practical Homeschooling Series.

We invite other home educators to
submit articles for inclusion
on this website.

Since 1989 Beverley Paine has
steadfastly promoted and supported home education as an educational choice for Australia families. Her books and websites aim to demystify education, gently deschooling families so that they may meet their children's individual and unique educational and developmental needs. Her honesty, insights and wealth of experience continues to bring hope, reassurance and confidence to families.

Be the first to find out about new
books, ebooks and booklets
by Beverley!

After 20 years of being a contact and support person Beverley no longer takes phone calls. Please join one of her yahoo groups if you want to know more about home education.

State Information
