. . .please?
I have an almost 4 year old and although he is at a lovely free-play nursery two days per week, we think that we are not going to send him to school. He loves nursery but it is like being at home in lots of wasy, it is child led and free-play based and, to be honest, if there was a school which was run like his nursery then I would send him there without any concerns. They really encourage him to be himself and his self confidence is growing by the week. I worry that school would quash that individuality and confidence in his ability by highlighting his failings rather than encouraging his strengths.
I have been humming and ha-ing about HE for several years now and my husband is in agreement (that we think it is the right thing but not quite sure). We would like to start the HE journey now so I have almost a year to test the water and to re-assure us all that it is the right thing to do.
There are a couple of HE groups around us but none very close by. I find it hard to justify travelling by car for almost an hour in order to access them, a part of HE is that we can concentrate on living a greener life. How do I know if there is anything more local to me? Do I need to pay to join EO or something similar to find out? Is it worth it? I know that peoples opinions of EO differ but is it a good way to contact oither HEers?
I know that this subject is gone over everytime someone starts out on the journey but would be keen to have your opinions please.
Thanks for your help
