Welcome to the online abode of this big, slightly crazy family. We have been home educating our children for 4 years and in that time we have tried so many different styles, curriculums, and books that I couldn’t even begin to list them all. One thing we have found, though is that home ed itself has been the scariest, most challenging and yet most rewarding decision we have ever made.
There have been days when it’s seemed like everything is going smoothly, the kids are happy, the books we read and curriculum we use goes down well.
There have been other days when the books get thrown, meltdowns are had and curriculum gets abandoned in a crate never to see the light of day again.
Through all of that, I have retained a love of books and this site is an extension of our home education style - a mix of literature and set curriculum. We have struggled to find good quality homeschool curriculum in the UK and this is what first inspired us to open our own online shop.
One of our goals in starting Homeschool Bargains was to help people who worry about the cost of home education. It is true that it costs whatever you want it to cost, there are free resources online and most of the best learning happens in real life situations BUT a stack of good books is the perfect way to ignite a passion for a topic and with a set curriculum you can ensure that your child gets a good education in the basic, maths and English while allowing you the time and freedom to explore their interests wherever they may take you!
Feel free to get in contact with us, we are always happy to help wherever possible.
