My daughter is only 16 months right now. I'm a SAHM.
Dh & I have spoken about homeschooling since we decided to start a family, but it's only been in the past 6 months we have decided its the way we want to go.
My husband went to primary schools but during high school his mum switched to Homeschooling.
So we have somewhat of an idea on what is involved.
It seems a bit has changed since my MIL home-schooled my DH.
So I'm after some advise.
We currently live in Brisbane QLD.
We would prefer to have the homeschooling to involve a long Distance education path.
to be honest I just don't know where to look to get the right information and I have read that within QLD most of the laws are being changed, If I go through a private distance education college do I still have to "register"?
I have also noticed there are many many different ways one can home school.
What are some other options that you have tried or are doing? And how does it suit you?
Can any parent homeschool?
Do I have to have some level of higher education?
I didn't complete high school, I left and attended Tafe along with a private college in order to receive a cert 3 trades apprenticeship.
Which took 4 Years.
I have no problems going back to Tafe to complete year 12 in order to Homeschool my daughter, Or if it is required that i need a higher level of education.
Also is there anything I can start doing now to prepare her for homeschooling?
I know she is young but I really want to be prepared.
Also at what stage do I enroll her in a distance education college or register her?
I still have much to find out and learn about the process of homeschooling.
I thought I would start here in the hopes others mums could point me in the right direction.
I'm not the most intellectual type
So I'm a little worried at how I will go!
We definitely want to home school though.
Sorry there are so many questions.
My mind is buzzing on where to go next.
It's been very daunting reading all the different laws ect on the Internet.
So I thought it might be time to seek advise from other people
