Advice from Home Educators
"Know the law. The number of people I see on HE groups who did not know they don't have to have visits or provide evidence of work etc. is astonishing. To me, knowing what your rights are is probably the most important starting point then at least if (when) the LA/ police/ random strangers decide to push their luck you are confident in your knowledge of your rights/ responsibilities."
Tips from us
Read our FAQ and the legal stuff. Knowing your rights is VERY important.
Are you a child minder willing to care for a home educated child? Add your details here.
Please note: Educational Freedom takes no responsibility for the accuracy of the information listed about each childminder. We recommend caution and common sense when choosing a childminder. Please do your own research and checks before employing a minder.
A childminder can not be legally responsible for providing home education for your child, however, it is acceptable for them to oversee 'homework'.
I am a registered childminder and I offer childcare for children of ages who are home educated or not. I home educate my own young son. We are autonomous in our approach and spend a whole lot time outdoors learning and exploring about the world around us whatever the weather.
