"You are forging your own path. That's superhero material before you even get started."

Welcome

If you have arrived here, it is likely you have taken the courageous leap to leave the schooling system or you’re thinking seriously about it.

First, can I say, you are amazing.

Making the conscious choice to either remove your family from the system that schooled us or not even sign up at all? Well, that is a mammoth step in the direction of empowerment and freedom for you and your children.

And it takes such bravery.

You are being inundated from all sides with images of what everyone else does. What you’re “supposed” to do.  But you, instead, a forging your own path.  You are putting your family first.  In my books, that’s superhero material before you even get started.

Ok, so now what?

At school, you used a curriculum.  Should you do that?  At school, you used “age-appropriate” materials and standards. Should you do that? Or if you decide to leave it all behind and do this Unschooling thing, how do you know your child isn’t going to get to the end of their “schooling” years, want to go to university, turn out to be completely inept and you discover you’ve ruined their life??  Right?

Most homelearning families have traveled through this same maze of questions.  It can be overwhelming.

Sometimes, all you need is a little support to get you moving in a direction that feels right for you.  And the scary yet beautiful thing about that direction is, it will be entirely different to everyone else’s. Because there is no other family. No. Other. Family. Like yours. So how are you supposed to find this unique direction then?

Lets chat.

You’re not alone in this.

Support is available here, now.

I opted out of the system.

12 years teaching Montessori and the beauty of the philosophy had been eaten away by government regulations and, truthfully, the uptight Montessori schooling system.

What remains?

A deep belief in a child’s capability to know their own heart and direct their own learning…

Years of experience in creating beautiful learning spaces to inspire and support children in exploring their passion and love of learning…

Thousands of hours working together with devoted, loving parents, offering insight and support for their family’s learning journey…

Awe and amazement at the beauty revealed as a family moves through their challenges together, holding a mirror to their loved ones and unlocking each others’ gifts…

A drive to do whatever I can to support families to escape the broken education system and join the homelearning  (r)evolution.

Prepping for the homeschool homeschool market on Saturday 🥰

Prepping for the homeschool homeschool market on Saturday 🥰 ...

Countdown to our co-op's first homeschool market! How exciting! We did a practice run to get the feel for how a market stall runs. We realised a good stall needs more than just things to sell. It needs to grab people's attention and be interesting enough to attract customers 😄 Next week we'll work on how to beautify our stall 💕❤

Thank you for sharing Marit Lucinda 💕

If only we could see the power in rest. 
If only we could attach to it, the worth it so deserves. 

If only we could open our minds to the idea, that everything in nature has its time to rise and its time to descend. 

That each of these acts is just a important as the other.
And that is exactly as it must be. 

If only we could see the courage it takes to lay aside the worries, the fears and the comparison, just for a few hours, to let the mind, spirit and body come together again. 

Doing the one thing they all require so much… nothing.

If only we could see the power in rest.
Because resting is very much doing.

I believe I just drove a full 5 minutes from home with my fuzzy, tired brain before I actually checked in and asked, "Hey, where am I going again?" 😅
Ever had that?

Homeschooling/working mama life can be exhausting, but hell, I would sacrifice so much to make sure my kids don't need to go to school.  I believe so strongly that it's the best thing I can offer them for their emotional, physical, mental and spiritual wellbeing.

So I give it my all and try my best to balance family and work life, challenging as it is, and to find pockets of me time, even if it is just an occasional drive alone with an audio book on or a cup of tea on the deck staring at the trees while the kids play in the yard.

Yes, I'm tired, but an early night should help that.  Yes, money is tight, but hours with my family are worth more than gold, and yes, my self nourishment time is limited, but I'm having a movie date tomorrow with the other co-op mamas while the dads all step in 🙌

Every day, I feel so blessed and so sure of my choice to homeschool ❤
