HOME EDUCATION – a great way to learn!

What is AHE?

Auckland Home Educators is a regional organisation – here to help you in your homeschooling journey or to provide information for those interested in this path.

We are here to advocate for home education.  Home education is a valid (excellent!) educational choice for New Zealand families and supported by the Ministry of Education.

We help support learning and connect homeschooling families through regional events such as the Science Fair, Cross Country, Parent Forums etc.  (See our events page for more details.)

Browse our website to find out about getting started, support groups, and how we can help.

Join AHE to keep up to date with homeschooling events, activities, and groups via our email loop and newsletter.

This is a great event providing opportunity for children to explore the world of science, and share their discoveries with the community.
