Best Way to Find a Homeschool Group Near You!

By far, the best way to find homeschool groups near you is by looking at the Facebook groups in your area. You may not like Facebook, but so many of the homeschool groups seem to be on them these days.

You can simply navigate to the community/groups tab and type in ‘homeschool group in [your area] and search. Homeschool groups will pop up depending on how active the community is around your area. You can join these groups and connect with other homeschool parents.

WHY Find a Homeschool Support Group?

There are many benefits of being involved with a homeschool support group. Support groups can offer advice, resources, and, most importantly, community.

For many homeschooled families, socialization is one of the biggest concerns. By joining a support group, homeschoolers can connect with other families who share their values and educational philosophies. These groups often organize field trips and other events, giving children an opportunity to interact with their peers in a relaxed setting.

In addition to providing social opportunities, homeschool support groups can be a valuable resource for information and advice. Seasoned homeschoolers can offer tips on curriculum choices and dealing with difficult challenges. Newcomers to homeschooling may find the moral support of experienced group members invaluable.

How to Find a Homeschool Co-op

What is a Homeschool Co-op?

A homeschool co-op is a cooperative effort by a group of families to provide educational opportunities for their children. It is a way for families to pool their resources and talents to create a rich learning environment for their kids.

There are many different types of homeschool co-ops, but they all have one thing in common: the families work together to provide an education for their children. Homeschool co-ops can offer classes, extracurricular activities, and even social events for the families involved.

Homeschool co-ops are a great way for families to get involved in their children’s education and create a supportive community. If you’re thinking about homeschooling or already homeschooling, a homeschool co-op might be just what you’re looking for! You can find out more about a homeschool co-op in this article.

Just type in your area followed by the words ‘homeschool co-op’ and see what comes up.

When You Can’t Find Homeschool Groups Near You…

What if you’re living remotely on a farm, or you’re a missionary overseas and there are no homeschool families around you? What do you do then?
Unfortunately, homeschool groups and homeschool co-ops require a large community.
But don’t worry too much if you don’t have this. The best way to get community for your children is to get them involved with people in your local areas.
For example, make friends with your neighbors. Chat to the grocer. Volunteer at the local opportunity shop. Jump on opportunities to interact and speak with people around you. It might require you to get a little more creative, but you can do it!

Conclusion to Finding a Homeschool Group Near You

In conclusion, if you are looking for a homeschool group near you, check out the list above. You will indeed find one that fits your needs and your child’s personality. With so many options available, there is no reason not to get involved in a homeschool group. So what are you waiting for? Get out there and find the perfect group for your family!

Rebecca Devitt

Most adults don't particularly want to relive their schooling experience on a daily basis. They would gladly move on to a new life devoid of homework and teachers. Very, very few adults will passionately blog about their schooling some 15 years after graduating. This makes Rebecca Devitt somewhat unique. As it happens, she was homeschooled. And she loved it. Still does. And she wishes every kid could get a taste of homeschooling at its very best. Her website How Do I Homeschool, is a springboard for parents to see what a life of homeschooling could be for both them & their children. When she's not blogging Rebecca is still homeschooling her-adult-self by learning Latin, growing weird vegetables and most importantly looking after her two children Luke & Penny. She has a husband Tristan and is a participant at Wollongong Baptist Church. She's also written a book about why parents should homeschool called 'Why on Earth Homeschool'.
