HOME EDUCATION

I was a Primary School Teacher and worked in Education for 10 years before having children.

Education was life…I even married a Secondary Teacher.

You may be surprised to hear that our boys don’t attend nursery or school.

We decided when they were very young that our school system just didn’t fit with how we wanted to raise our boys.

We spend a lot of time learning outdoors. I love watching toddlers trying to reach their own pockets…so cute ❤

Soon after our eldest was turned one we decided that we’d had enough of living to work and never having enough family time so we set off to travel…world schooling and trying to make a living online in the process…
