Home schooling, also called home education, is education delivered
in a child’s home by a parent or guardian, under the Education Act 1990.
Home schooling allows a parent or guardian to integrate the NSW curriculum
with the learning processes that occur naturally in the home throughout a child's development.
Parents or guardians who are home schooling a child accept responsibility
for developing, implementing and evaluating their child's learning program.
Registration with the Board of Studies NSW is a legal requirement for
home schooling while a child is of compulsory school age and not enrolled
in a school.
Read the Home Education information Package for further information
about home schooling and to help decide if this form of education is
appropriate for you and your child.

Home Education Association Inc.
Home education, or homeschooling, is a legal alternative to
school education in all Australian states. As the name suggests,
it involves a parent taking direct responsibility for the education
of their children at home.
The HEA was formed in April 2001 to promote the practice of homeschooling
in Australia and to provide members with benefits which would be difficult
to obtain by individuals or smaller groups.
