Affordable Homeschooling

Teaching your child at home can be affordable enough to suit your homeschool budget.

There are lots of ways to find free and inexpensive resources, activities and materials for home schooling. And I hope to have made things easier for you by collecting some of them together on this page :)

When you are on a budget, even a little saving can go a long way - so I hope you find this a useful list.

Inexpensive Homeschooling

The key to affordable homeschool is planning ahead. Spur of the moment spending can ruin your budget. So think carefully about what resources and materials would really make a difference to you - and make a plan.

Start with things you can get for free. There are lots of resources and materials available to you if you know where to look.

The library should always be the first place you start. You will be amazed at the great books and materials available. See if there is a toy library near you - or if your local homeschool group have a lending scheme.
