Do you need to know how many hours to homeschool? 1, 4, 8 hours a day? Which is best? Read on to find out!

How Many Hours Should We Study Each Day?

Homeschooling is very flexible and it is up to you to decide how long you spend in 'formal' learning each day. You need to take into account the laws in your State, but you don't have to see your learning in terms of 'set time'.

Most people homeschool for three to four hours a day depending on the age of the child.

This seems to be a good balance. Eight is generally too much in homeschool as it is a more intensive one-to-one type learning. You will need to think carefully about your homeschool scheduling and decide if you are going to use a homeschooling curriculum.

Some families adopt one hour homeschooling.

This can be a effective way to teach your child at home and has been very successful. Fill the rest of your day with fun educational activities and field trips.

Unschooling families believe that learning takes place all the time and so do not do any formal learning sessions. Again this is an effective way to do things. Find out more about autonomous education and how it works.

So, you can see that the answer to the question 'how many hours to homeschool' depends upon your family. Don't be afraid to try out different options and see what works best for you.
