Zero to Homeschool

 

Ditch the homeschool overwhelm and create an insanely educational homeschool lifestyle – that’s actually enjoyable 

I went from freaked-out to confident in a few weeks. EVERY new homeschooler should do this course!

Do you feel overwhelmed by homeschooling requirements and options? If you have 48 homeschooling-related tabs open in your browser, you can answer yes.

 

Is analysis paralysis your constant companion? Do you find it nearly impossible to choose resources and activities and agonise over every decision?

 

Do you feel that no matter what you do it’s not enough? You might be doing OK with history, but your child isn’t fluent in Mandarin, so you’re still a failure.

 

Do you clash with your children? You pictured a lovely homeschooling lifestyle where you’d all sit around together enjoying what you’re doing, but instead you find yourself shouting at them waaay too often.

 

Do you feel drained and tired, like important stuff is slipping through cracks but you just can’t get on top of it?

 

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

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!

If your homeschool feels like a disaster zone Zero to Homeschool will give you the step-by-step information you need to eliminate overwhelm, make the right decisions easily, gain confidence, and live in a way that helps you to LIKE your kids (and means they’ll like you, too).

 

And you’ll learn the framework and take real action in just a few short weeks.

 

In each module we tackle a different area of your homeschool + life. Each module contains readings, videos and other resources that help you learn about an area and work out what you REALLY want to do in that area. Not just what you think you ‘should’ do!

 

Zero to Homeschool makes it easy to create change. Each module 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’ve defined.

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.

Ready to create a homeschooling lifestyle that energises and fulfils you?

IMAGINE…

…your child choosing to do productive and educational activities – because they love them
…cutting way back on nagging, bribing, cajoling, coercing, and outright threats
…looking back at your weeks and feeling like your child is making real progress
…being in partnership with your child and feeling like you can achieve anything together
…not taking on the stress + uncertainty that society tries to give you

Many people think homeschooling has to be difficult, grinding work, but it’s not true.

 

Your days don’t have to be long, tedious, or repetitive – they can be fun and spontaneous with lots of free time. Promise!

 

You can wake up feeling positive and excited about the day ahead of you (most of the time – I’m not magic!)

 

You just need a system.

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.

But you love your kids.

 You can do this.

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.

Hi, I’m Kelly

I have five always-homeschooled children aged 10 – 15. Homeschooling has given us freedom and adventure, connection and time, and I want to help you to create a homeschooling lifestyle you’ll love too.

One that is fun and interesting, that gets the whole family excited about education.

One that supports deep, context-based learning and creates the habits and skills necessary for lifelong self-directed education.

One that strengthens family bonds and leaves you all feeling totally in love with each other.

Ready for a better homeschool?

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 30 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.
