Worried about homeschooling?

 

Homeschooling can give children an amazing education – and families an amazing life.

 

But it can be REALLY overwhelming when trying to work out just how, exactly, you’re meant to pull off this impressive homeschool ideal. You know it probably won’t look much like school – but just what are you meant to do instead?

 

Does this sound like you?

 

You’re overwhelmed with information – Suddenly, you’re in a whole new world where people talk about deschooling, autonomous learning, and someone called Charlotte Mason. They may as well be speaking Russian for all the sense it makes to you.

 

You’re frustrated by conflicting information – You ask for help online, but again, you’re swamped with dozens of opinions. They all contradict each other, so how on earth do you tell who’s right?

 

You hesitate to buy resources – There’s so much available, how on earth can you choose? Plus, you don’t have unlimited funds, and some of that stuff is expensive-you need to know you’ll get your money’s worth.

 

You wonder how you’ll all get along – All of us, together, all the time? And I have to TEACH them?

 

Everyone has an opinion – your mum, the media, the mailman – they all seem to be convinced you’ll ruin your children/family/society. You’re pretty sure homeschooling is the best option, but all that criticism is hard to deal with………

 

You try to copy school, but it’s a disaster – you’re bored, your children rebel, and you think that you’ll never be able to manage to educate your children.

 

And to top it all off it’s pretty scary knowing that it all rests with you – there’s no teacher or school to shift the blame to if it all falls apart.

 

Does any/all of that sound too familiar? You don’t have to raise your hand, we’re homeschoolers here – we’re allowed to speak up.

 

Is it any wonder that you’re thinking that homeschooling is a lot more complicated than it should be, and wondering ‘Where on earth do I START?’

Zero to Homeschool is a great place to start

So, what is Zero to Homeschool?

 

Zero to Homeschool is a comprehensive online program designed to get you homeschooling successfully. Each week we tackle a different area of your homeschool + life. Each week there’s readings, videos and other resources that help you learn about an area, work out what you REALLY want to do about it

 

Learning what you need to do can be easier than actually doing it. But Zero to Homeschool makes it easy to do it! Each week contains tasks and challenges where you’ll implement what you’ve learned. You’ll slowly but surely make meaningful changes that improve your homeschool immediately, and that over time will lead you to the homeschooling outcomes you want (and Zero to Homeschool will even show you how to define those outcomes).

I have a child with special needs and I knew that homeschooling was the best option for her. Zero to Homeschool gave me the confidence and the knowledge I needed to move forward with my decision. Kelly shares honestly, from the heart, her own experience with homeschooling a child with special needs. Her first-hand experience was invaluable to me and worth every cent.

Zero to Homeschool provided the perfect framework to analyse what I was currently doing. It provided just the right support for me to discover my own insights that I needed to make the changes that were long overdue. I started the course feeling foggy and clueless about what I needed to change, and left feeling confident and clear about the right direction for my family.

Zero to Homeschool was just what I needed to give me the confidence boost to get in there and get started. The materials and videos are all bite sized and relevant and the course is easy to get through. I went from wanting to homeschool but not really knowing where to start to jumping right in and getting started with my preschooler. Kelly seems really chilled and approachable which I really liked too. Thank you! Keep up the great work!

Got a question? It might be answered here.

Who is Zero to Homeschool for?

Zero to Homeschool is right for you if you’re new to homeschooling, and want to start on the right foot. You don’t want to spend endless hours using trial and error and random information to find out what suits you, you just want to cut the overwhelm and get straight to the good stuff.

It will also suit you if you’re already homeschooling, but you feel that it’s not working. You and your children are bored, they’re rebelling, and you know there must be a better way to do this – but you’re not quite sure what it is. Zero to Homeschool will help you find your better way.

Who is Zero to Homeschool NOT for?

Zero to Homeschool is probably NOT right for you if you’re happy with your homeschool. Well done, and carry on!

Also, if you really like the idea of complete curriculums, strict schedules, and a school-like homeschool, it won’t be for you. We go beyond the limitations of school to craft a true, holistic education based on interest-led learning.

How long do I have access to the course?

Forever! After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course for as long as it’s available. You can revisit it whenever you need to shake up your homeschool.

PLUS you’ll also have full access to all future upgrades and updates, plus workshops and other bonuses. Zero to Homeschool is only going to get more comprehensive (and expensive), so now is a great time to jump in.

Is Zero to Homeschool presented from a religious viewpoint?

No, the course itself is totally secular. You’ll be designing and implementing your own personalised homeschool, and religious beliefs are an individual part of that.

However, Zero to Homeschool will allow you to incorporate your beliefs in the way you prefer. If you want to include Bible study in your morning time, or if you want to spend Ramadan focusing on charity and contemplation, you’ll learn how to work that into your routine.

Will you help me write a plan for legal approval to homeschool?

I’m not a lawyer and I don’t play one on the internet, so I cannot give you specific advice about registration.

However, the plan and activities you develop will form a great core to any application. I suggest that if you need to register you keep a copy of your requirements close at hand, and work through the course with them in mind.

Is this course aimed at a particular age group?

No. The framework and methods taught and used can be used for any age child, and for families with children of many different ages.
We drill down to the core requirements for success, and build on them.

How does this online course stuff work?

 Simple. Once you purchase the course you get access to everything inside it, instantly. Forever!

 

There’s no waiting, no dripped content, and nothing complicated. If you can manage an email account, you can do this.

 

What's your refund policy?

It’s simple and customer-centred. If you really don’t like the course (hasn’t happened yet!) contact me within seven days of your purchase and I’ll refund you ASAP.

 

There’s no need to answer any questions, prove you’ve completed it, or jump through any hoops. I’d love your feedback so I can continue to improve, but you don’t HAVE to.
