Homeschooling has become a popular choice in the past few years, and has expanded the range of educational possibilities for parents and children. In a world where work and family schedules are increasingly flexible, homeschooling is becoming a viable option for many families. However, the process of getting started may be a daunting one, and it may help to take a methodical approach. Here are some tips to make the homeschooling process easier.

The first step is to decide what type of learning environment you wish to provide for your child. The Education Act 2004 allows parents to choose between government and non-government schools, as well as home education. If you decide to pursue homeschooling, you should contact the Home Education team in your area to learn more about your options.

Once you have decided on the style of education that you wish to provide your children, the next step is to register as a homeschooling family. You can register your child in the Home Education Unit, which accepts children aged 5.5 to 17 years old. You must submit an application form, identification, and a Statutory Declaration before you can be registered. Once registered, the homeschooling unit will visit your home and assess your plan. You must also provide evidence of what you have taught your children.

Homeschooling is a viable educational option, and while it is not as easy as following the conventional educational route, there are benefits to homeschooling. Unlike traditional schooling, there are no established curriculum requirements, although most states do require homeschoolers to follow a part of the national Australian Curriculum. Many parents have their own ideas for what they want their child to learn.
