For two years we've produced one comprehensive directory but it had grown too large and responding to feedback from you, our loyal readers, we've split our Resource Directory into five separate directories, each with their own special purpose, packed with useful information to help you get started with home educating your children.
Two of our 5 Directories are updated regularly with current links to government agencies, educational resources and providers and home educating support groups.
Let Beverley help to demystify home educating with her 'quick guide' which explains what homeschooling and unschooling are, how to get started, withdraw your children from school and navigate the application and registration and review processes. You'll be accessing this Directory over and again as a home educating parent!
Get in touch with local home educators fast, or start your own group and email Beverley to add it to this Directory. Added to and updated regularly.
With links to over 80 Australian awecome Homeschooling and Unschooling Blogs - stories for you to follow, encourage and reassure you!
Includes quick links to educational and curriculum resources.
If you write about your home educating journey (blog or Facebook page) and want it listed in our Directory, email Beverley today.
Our Home Educators Business Directory help connect home educating families with other home educating families who are running their own businesses - let's support each other! Organised in two sections - the first in business categories, followed by state by state listings.
Email today to have your business included - listing for home educating families is FREE. Your business can be anything - from plumbing, photography or pet grooming - it doesn't need to be related to education!
Beverley has been compiling this list for over 2 decades and it keeps growing! There are hundreds of books about home education, how to home educate, different approaches to home educating, etc. This a reading list that will keep you reading for decades and provide all you ever wanted to know about helping your children learn without school!
If you are an author or have a favourite home ed book not yet listed, email Beverley with the details to have it included today.

Beverley Paine with her children, and their home educated children, relaxing at home.
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 supporter of national, state, regional and local home education groups.
We began educating our children in 1985, when our eldest was five. In truth, we had helped them learn what they need to learn since 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. We hope that your home educating adventure is as satisfying as ours was! Beverley Paine
