Primary Learning Resources: Home-schooling

A familiar and comfortable place to learn makes education enjoyable. Creating an excellent learning environment involves surroundings that are calm, secure and fun – just like at home.

Home-schooling is an alternative method of teaching offered outside the B.C. educational system. Typically, a family member delivers the entire educational program to children at home. Homeschooling programs are not:

  • Supervised by a B.C.-certified teacher
  • Required to meet provincial standards
  • Inspected by the Ministry of Education

Parents Should Consider…

Homeschooling comes with great responsibility – choosing this option means parents must provide and supervise their child’s entire educational program, including curriculum and learning materials.
