Online course by Seekers Hub Global (free). Highly recommend.
There are so many homeschoolers using social media to show how they home educate their kids. Many have coordinating blogs and Youtube channels.
Brilliant for getting ideas how to teach a topic or craft project ideas.

A Farmhouse Full
Local Home Ed group
As I mentioned before, you can find your local group of homeschoolers on Facebook. Another place you can look is Home Education in the UK who have a list of all the homeschooling groups around the country with contact details. Surrounding you and your children with like-minded people is so important, especially in the beginning. Go along to one of the group’s social events and ask a lot of questions. That’s what I did!
Starting this ‘journey’ is such an exciting time. The main advice I would give is learn as much as you can about home education, stay flexible, and don’t be disheartened if things don’t go as planned. It’s still early days!
We are so blessed to have this opportunity to stay home and educate our children. Alhumdulillah!
