There are loads of groups all through Kent. East Kent there’s an Ashford group, Folkestone andCoastal group, there’s a couple over Canterbury way etc.
I’m also sorting out Forest School at Brockhill Country Park, at Saltwood (nr Hythe) for Home Ed kids. And my group runs on a Thursday and we often meet during the week to do stuff together too. Zoo, shopping, parks etc. At the moment I’m meeting with a couple of other families on Tuesdays to do the Letterland scheme with the younger kids.
Hello again..are there many seconday age children? If we do it, it will be in a few years. We are considering doing it for their secondary years so I will be HEing dd for 2 years while ds is still finishing his junior school. Then DS will join us when dd will be 13 and he will be 11.
I guess my main worry is that there won’t be many/any older children? I want my two to feel a part of a group as they will have been used to school (which they love I might add) and I don’t want them to feel out of the loop. The only reason we are considering it is that there is only one school we would consider here and I’m thinking of a back up plan in case we don’t get in.
Forest school sounds amazing! Sounds like you are doing a FAB job Joxy.
Yeah, there’s a few in the group that are older, we have a couple of 8yrs olds, 9 and 11yr old. Other groups have more, we are quite a small group, I don’t know about the Canterbury groups as I’ve not made it over yet.
I take my mindies with me, so long you have permission from the parents its fine, although parents, I find, do want to know that their children are going to mix with other children too that will be going to school - toddler groups and the like.
