What we're about
This group is for homeschooling families with school aged children that are at least 5 years old and are being homeschooled or unschooled (younger siblings are allowed). This is not the group to join if you are exploring homeschooling as an option for your family or simply looking for a playgroup. The focus of our group is on social and educational events for actively homeschooling families.
We are an active group that provides a variety of ways for homeschooling families to connect and build friendships. We offer weekly park days, various field trips and events throughout the month. Our goal is to provide social opportunities, support and encouragement. Whatever your homeschool philosophy, from unschooling to traditional, no one is excluded because of schooling style or belief system. Respect and understanding of these differences is important to the success of this group, and we ask that everyone adhere to this.
Our primary activity will be a weekly Homeschool Park Day on Wednesday morning. Alachua Homeschooling Families has an attendance policy. Members are expected to attend 1 park day once a month. Members who do not meet this minimum attendance requirement will be removed from the group. By attending park days regularly, our children will have the opportunity to develop friendships and spend time with peers. This group was created with the intention of bringing together families and develop a community of friendship and support.
