Welcome to the Community!

Welcome to the Home Education, Homeschooling, Unschooling, deschooling, Worldschooling, Natural Learning, school at home, Distance Education… or whatever you would like to call it is what you do, Community.

Ultimately, we’re all aiming for the same thing… helping our children learn outside the traditional school system. I call it ‘getting on with life and learning as though schools doesn’t exist!

Who am I?

My name is Tamara Kidd, and I’m an Education Consultant based near Newcastle, NSW, Australia.

Formal training

Prior to having children, I was a NSW State Trained Primary Teacher. Between having my two children, I retrained in Montessori. After my children were old enough to cook their own food and tackle their own Mount Washmores, I returned to study Comparative and International Education at a Post Graduate level.

Home Education Experience

I home educated my children from June 2006 to January 2023. For 16.5 years we enjoyed a wonderful life of learning together, using a mixture of Montessori and Unschooling, and finishing with TAFE qualifications to an HSC or higher level.

As for using a school, my eldest tried 3 different schools briefly, to see if they liked it, and my youngest chose to never attend even one day. My eldest has worked in their trained field for 3 years before relocating to Sydney for further study, and in February 2023 they both commenced undergraduate degrees, doing what they both love.

I’ve the joy of knowing they are well-prepared for their lives and have all the confidence and knowledge that comes from this ‘bespoke’ and legitimate education choice. I’m well qualified to say that learning about the world in the world is second to none. It has been the best teaching gig I’ll ever have, and I have no regrets that we chose this pathway.

Community work

Over the years I’ve also met and helped thousands of Home Educators, presented at conferences, summits, run workshops, assisted with writing countless plans and helped people with record keeping. I’ve started meetup groups, run home education events and camps, and in general have done ‘what I can, when I can’ as is the nature of what we do. That now includes you! Today, I continue to be a part of the Home Education Community and hope to be for many years to come.
