HEN Victorian facebook group

HEN runs a Facebook group for Victorian home educators and those considering home education in Victoria. It is designed to be a source of information, support and encouragement. Feel free to join at https://www.facebook.com/groups/HENVic/

 

 

 

HEN Teen Families Victoria

HEN has also recently created a Facebook group for Victorian families with at least one child between the ages of 12 and 18, who are already actively home educating. The purpose of this group is to support and inform as well as being a place for families of teens to share ideas and experiences, to discuss further education options, and make social connections for teens. You can find the group at https://www.facebook.com/groups/HENteenfamilies

 

HEN Members have access to the private HEN Members Facebook Group. Please email coordinator@home-ed.vic.edu.au if you would like to join.

 


Find a group by clicking on our map or browsing the tabs below. Preschool age Victorian groups are listed under the Special Purposes tab.
To list or update a group, please email groups@home-ed.vic.edu.au

The Home Education Network provides this list as a service to the community. Group listing does not imply endorsement by HEN.

Parents retain the responsibility for the education and supervision of their own children. HEN is committed to keeping children. Safe see our Statement of Commitment on Child Safety for details.

Many of the groups are run by our members, others by non-members. Home educators have widely differing needs and expectations. It is up to each family to decide which groups are suitable for them.

Explore More – Canberra Homeschooling Community

We are a small secular inclusive homeschooling meetup group for the whole family, embracing and encouraging friendships, play and connection across all primary school age ranges (approx 6 to 12 yrs), we also have younger and older siblings frequently joining us at meets!

We aim to keep our meets relaxed and casual, with most of us of unschooling, eclectic, natural learning approaches.

Building community and friendships, we gather together weekly and are looking for families committed to doing so, who are interested in helping to support this fun, exciting, collaborative experience. We usually have outdoor nature / hiking meets and alternate them with a park meet each week.

If this appeals to you and your family you are more then welcome to attend a few meets to see if the group is the right fit.

We hope you find this helpful, make new friends, enjoy new adventures and have fun.
