We've been holding these meetups since Nov 2020. They are open to any family wanting to find friendships, form connections and create a network of support from others home educating. We strongly encourage people to attend as frequently as they can, rather than one-off drop-in style. This is because while we do host activities for the children, the main aim is to provide support to one another and facilitate friendships. If you haven't attended before we ask that before booking a session through here you contact us via rclh.org.uk to have a friendly chat so that we can ensure you feel comfortable at the session and we know who is coming. We have a mailing list and your free membership on our website helps us keep everyone insured. Many thanks.

These sessions are run by the parents in a joint effort to provide an environment for the children in which they feel safe and can make friends. Everyone helps out in some way whether it is opening up, cleaning and closing down, or bringing resources.

She coordinates the planning of activities and supervises the smallest people while they do age appropriate activities with her. We sometimes arrange for additional facilitators, depending on the funds we have available and what feels right for the themes we are learning about.

The aim of these group meetups is to forge a stronger sense of community amongst the home educators in this area. We value above all friendships and supporting one another with our home educating and parenting.
