Waitakere Home Educators is a social group for home educated children and their families.

Our group is based in West Auckland and meets weekly on Wednesdays during the school term to play, chat and form friendships.

Fortnightly we are at the Te Atatu South Community Centre for free play, sports, lego and other games. The alternate weeks see us out in the community at various parks, reserves, beaches, playgrounds, swimming pools and the occasional free or low cost educational or entertainment venue.

All families with home educated children aged 5 years and up may join – our current age range is 5 to 15 – plus siblings under 5. The group is welcoming and inclusive.

There is a small fee to belong to our group you can read more about that here.

Each term’s schedule is updated during the school holidays and placed on the website.
