Hedjumacation is a privately run website,
which aims to encourage newcomers
and long-term practitioners about the
possibilities of home education.

It is not our intention to tell anybody how to do anything. Our hope is, that by sharing something of our experience, we may provide some food for thought so that you may be better equipped to make the decisions that are appropriate to your own family’s education options.

If you’re puzzled about the name of our site, read Hedjumacation?

If you’d like to know more about us and our journey, read Our Story.

If you’re just starting out on the journey of home education, we encourage you to start with your ABC’s: the sections named Appraisal Time, Building Blocks and Considerations.

If you’re curious about the registration process, how the Department of Education views home education, or how to prepare for a registration visit, our Official Stuff section is the place to look.

Throughout this website, we’re aiming to help you think things through for yourself. We encourage you to take your time, read, listen, think, talk, and do whatever else you need to do, so that you are the one who knows what you’re doing and why. That might sound scary, but in the long run, you’ll be far happier than if you just do what somebody else tells you to do.

Home education can be a wonderful experience for you and your child, and we hope you get to enjoy every little bit of it.

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I —
I took the one less travelled by,
and that has made all the difference.
