Ontario Homeschool Support Groups

Southwestern Ontario

Kitchener-Waterloo Christian Home Educators’ Association (KWCHEA)

Our group consists of over 200 families from Kitchener, Waterloo, Elmira, and the surrounding area.  We meet together regularly to encourage and support one another in our God-given task of educating our children spiritually and academically according to the inspired Word of God defined as the Historical Canon of the Old and New Testaments.  We aim to do this by: regular support group meetings; sharing of information and resources;  education and social group activities.

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.

Areas Served: Kitchener, Waterloo, Elmira

Oxford County Home Educators

This group’s aim is to provide home educators from our region with a place to connect, plan meetups, encourage each other and develop relationships with the many unique families in our area who have come to home educating for a wide variety of reasons. Whether you are more traditional in your home education style or leaning more towards an un-schooling approach…or you might even be an eclectic mix falling somewhere in between, we all share a commonality of being home educators with our children’s best life and happiness at the heart of what we do! I hope you find some great connections for yourself and your kiddos through this group! Feel free to toss out ideas on the wall for: – Meetups for our kids to interact (Park dates, fun holiday theme activities etc.) – Educational Trips – Resources and Encouragement – Fun/Educational Local activities and events that you are planning to attend – Coordinating extra-curricular activities that your children are taking part in, that others may want to join in on at the same time (Swimming lessons, Karate, Gymnastics, Dance, Music, Soccer …you get the idea

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.

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.  If you’re anywhere near our area, we’d love to connect with you!

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.
