Homeschool Support Groups in Ontario

Southwestern Ontario

Kitchener-Waterloo Christian Home Educators’ Association (KWCHEA)

Our group consists of approximately 180 families from Kitchener, Waterloo, Elmira, New Hamburg, and the surrounding area. We meet together regularly to encourage and support one another in our God-given task of educating our children. We aim to do this by: regular support group meetings; sharing of information and resources; education and social group activities. We have several weekly co-ops, and programs that happen weekly and monthly. Our monthly parent's support group meetings are held one Saturday of each month, except for July and August. Due to insurance regulations, we are not permitted to have children under 12 attending the meeting. Nursing babies are permitted though. You do not need to be a member of our group to attend a parent support group meeting. Registered members will received a printed phone directory, monthly newsletters, and will be added to our support group email listing. KWCHEA does not require that all members agree with our Statement Purpose or our Statement of Faith. We do require that members accept that this is the policy of our group, and that all our support group activities will be conducted in a manner that is in line with our policy.

Oxford County Home Educators

Description: This group's aim is to provide Oxford County home educators a place to connect, plan meetups and educational trips/clubs, encourage each other and to get to know the many home educating families in our county, learn from each other's unique perspectives and the reasons why we have all chosen to home educate. Open to all Oxford County Home Educators, whether your style is traditional, un-schooling, de-schooling, life-schooling, forest-schooling, or an eclectic mix of some or all of the above. We are not affiliated with any particular style/outlook/religious beliefs/association etc. Just an eclectic group brought together by our location and passion for home educating our kids.
Activities: Join our Facebook group to stay informed about all of the informal meetups planned for our kids to interact with their peers, educational trips or clubs to partake in, local activities and events suggested by members to participate in, and you can also feel free to use the group to coordinate extra-curricular activities for your kids to participate in with other local home educated kids.

H.O.P.E. (Homes of Priority Education)

Description: We are a non-denominational Christian group. Members must sign our statement of faith. The group averages around 40-50 families each year.
Activities: We hold Support Meetings on the fourth Monday of the month (September, October, November, January, February, March, and April). These meetings are open to all and have a wide range of topics. A small library with support materials (no curriculum) is available for members at these meetings. Topics for support meetings are published in advance in our newsletter, The Hope Herald. It is published monthly from August through May and is the main means of communication for our group. We provide H.O.P.E. Days, which is a cooperative teaching opportunity. These occur on six Friday mornings, from 9:00 – 11:45, in the fall and in the spring to provide interaction, fun, and learning in a group setting. There is a nursery provided for the younger children and activity classes for the older children. There is a cost for H.O.P.E. Days above the H.O.P.E. registration fee, and parental involvement is expected. We plan many field trips and activities throughout the year. Members are encouraged to be involved and to contribute to the group by organizing, volunteering, and participating in events. Some activities include our Track and Field Day, skating and hockey on Fridays through the winter, Project Fair, and many interesting and educational field trips.
Membership Fees/Requirements: annual membership fees are approx. $35/family. Members must sign our statement of faith.

Kids Learning Connections (KLC)

KLC is a secular, non-profit community of homelearners centered around London, Ontario. We are an inclusive parent run co-op. Our goal is to build a community for our children and families. Members of KLC are a diverse mix of people: large families and small; homeschoolers and unschoolers and everything in between. Our common ground is a desire to provide enriching activities and opportunities for our kids; a chance to share hobbies and interests with others; an opportunity to grow our children's world by bringing unique people to us or exploring different venues; a chance to be with friends and to make new friends. KLC isn't just for the kids. We grow and learn as our kids do. Being part of a diverse group allows opportunity for parents to learn from one another while we support each other in our journeys.

Dundas-Grenville Christian Home Educators’ Association (DGCHEA)

The Dundas-Grenville Christian Home Educators’ Association (DGCHEA) serves families who educate their children at home, in or near Dundas County, Ontario. Members also come from Leeds & Grenville (Spencerville, Cardinal, Prescott) and as far east as Finch.  The group has no governing head, but collectively and cooperatively organizes weekly events and programs for children of all ages. In addition to weekly physical education classes and two semesters of history and science classes, the DGCHEA also organizes about a dozen educational field trips throughout the school year. The events and programs are recorded in an annual photo yearbook distributed to member families in the spring. The DGCHEA accepts participation of people from all backgrounds and faiths; all should understand that the group is fundamentally a Christian community, based on Biblical principles. The hope is that the group may be a place where parents can be supported in the principles they are teaching at home, and where children can make friends with other children, building relationships in a safe environment.
There is an annual membership fee of $10 that gives access to the Facebook group and email updates and helps cover minimal expenses.

Homeschooling Your Unique Learner in Canada

https://www.facebook.com/groups/1638759296204088/
This group is open to parents who homeschool or are considering homeschooling their children that have UNIQUE needs, with or without a formal diagnosis. By UNIQUE, we mean those who learn differently than the ‘regular’ child, and who have academic or behavioural struggles.
The primary purpose of this group is to encourage and support Canadian homeschool families. We want to build a community of Canadian Homeschoolers that help and encourage one another on this journey. We hope that this group will be a place where you feel free to share your concerns and struggles, your successes and your accomplishments, but also a place to share curriculum choices and/or therapies that worked for your student - all with the intention of discovering strategies and creative ideas to help your student continue on the road to lifelong learning.

French for Homeschool (Resources, Activities and Connections)

https://www.facebook.com/groups/1654829234737736/
A place for Canadian homeschoolers to share resources, curriculum, ideas, activities, blogs, living books, etc. Also a place to connect with and encourage others pursuing this shared goal. Please indicate if a resource is suitable for French parents or is user friendly for English first parent. Please keep commentary kind, helpful and encouraging. As I am getting more and more requests from individuals outside of Canada, I have added a question to help in the screening process.
