Reasons to consider home schooling

• Poor experience in local schooling – teaching style, bullying, class numbers
• Location – families that may have to live and work abroad for periods of time or live in very remote areas without easy access to a local school
• Family lifestyle – option to have more freedom and flexibility as well as choosing more parental involvement
• A practical choice for those who are not able to cope with the routine of school

Benefits of home education

• Studying at a pace and in a style which suits the individual learner so their specific needs can be met
• As a child grows and develops their learning style may need to adapt, this is achievable through a flexible home education
• Freedom and time to concentrate on the subjects a child enjoys, thereby nurturing their talent and pursuing their natural interests
• Children become self-disciplined and responsible individuals often from an early age
• A form of continuity of education for families who often have to move or travel due to the nature of some working parents
• An increase in self-motivation with a strong work ethic from a young age
• Provides the opportunity for parents to learn in tandem with their children which creates strong bonds and better communication in families through conversational learning
