Home Education

We’re into our fifth year of home educating our children; it’s a joy and a privilege to serve my children this way; to spend everyday with them and be the first to see their creative development and educational steps.

Our reason to home educate was out of conviction, not a reaction; God has guided our path and we are convinced it’s the right thing to do for our family.  We are not against the UK education system but we’ve chosen to be responsible for the educational development of our children and love every minute of it.

Our methods have been very eclectic over the past 4 years but after much (and continued) reading and research our pedagogy of choice follows the methods of an 18th century educator called Charlotte Mason.  The Charlotte Mason methods resonate greatly with my family and I try to educate our children accordingly. I aim to be learning and discovering more about her methods by reading and researching her life and works and shaping them to suit my children and our growing educational needs.

Here are some places you can find out more about her methods;
