Facebook Home Ed Groups

Facebook home ed groups

We have collected a range of Facebook groups to aid you on your home education journey. Please note that most of them are private groups. You'll need to ask to join and answer their questions to become a member. There is so much for home educators on Facebook that it is worth joining to access it; you can sign up using a pseudonym.
