Karen and Warren talk about the role of the homeschooling parent.
Confident in their decision to homeschool
This first year has been a real eye-opener. As parents we now play a much more active role in our children’s education and after our first year can see the positive impact homeschooling has had on our family. We can see where each child’s passion lies and by the same token where it doesn’t. We can allow them more freedom to pursue those subjects which really interest and engage them. Our children have become confident, independent learners who know how to effectively manage their time and who, believe or not, enjoy ‘school’.
Before enrolling our children at Wolsey Hall we had many concerns, I hope this post helps to reassure those of you contemplating taking the plunge into home education that it is indeed possible to achieve a world class education outside of the four walls of a traditional school.
Karen Binedell and her family have been homeschooling with Wolsey Hall Oxford whilst volunteering their way around Europe by caravan. To date they have visited six countries, participated in 14 volunteer projects and plan to keep going well into 2020.
