Homeschooling Resources

As homeschooling families ourselves, we’re all too familiar with the challenges home education can present. Finding homeschooling resources can be hard. For some, the choice to homeschool is difficult and further complicated by concerns about the roles and rights of homeschooling parents.

In addition to NSHEA, there are many other excellent resources provincially as well as within Canada. Don’t leave your questions unanswered – take a look at the links and homeschooling resources below and reach out if you have more questions. We’re happy to help!

Be sure to check out our resource page specifically for those new to home education, our frequently asked questions (FAQs), and our list of curriculum resources.

Use the links to the right to access those homeschooling resources.
