The decision to homeschool is not always easy. Families new to homeschooling are often concerned if it will provide a good education for their children and if they have the skills needed to be a good homeschool teacher.
Homeschooling will work if you can commit to the process and take responsibility for your child’s education. From firsthand experience, we have seen homeschooling work many times over, with many different families in many different parts of the world.
Teaching your children at home is a wonderful opportunity to be part of their education and help them shape their interests while providing a solid knowledge base.
Homeschooling from the beginning is an amazing way to provide a foundation for your child that will encourage them to learn and grow throughout their life.
You have already spent the first several years of your child’s life helping them learn and develop and there is no reason to stop now. No public school will be able to encourage your child’s learning and cater to their special interests the way a homeschool education can.
If your child is approaching school age, now is the right time to consider their future and layout an education plan that will benefit their whole life. This beginning is also a great time to start your journey as a teaching parent.

Homeschooling your child after they have already experienced public education is not as difficult as you think.
Many families begin homeschooling later in their child’s education for many different reasons. Whether due to travel or relocating, change in school districts, quality between grade levels, safety, learning environment or lifestyle change, the decision to homeschool is never too late.

What is the end goal?
Are you planning for your child to attend collage or university or maybe a specialized skill field?
Which areas of study should you focus on?
