“I attended the ‘Introduction to Home Education’ workshop conducted by Nicole and Jeny. This workshop was really informative and eased my anxieties about whether I could ‘fully’ home educate my daughter. My daughter struggled at mainstream schools (we tried two) before trialling distance education […] Although the Special Needs teacher was really accommodating, this approach wasn’t flexible enough for our needs. The information given and experiences shared by Nicole and Jeny during the workshop really helped me on my journey to full home learning for my daughter. I was able to prepare my home learning plan and HEU application with the confidence gained through the workshop, and my daughter is now fully registered with the Home Education Unit in Queensland. Thank you so much to you both, Nicole and Jeny, for your guidance and encouragement. I look forward to the Reporting for the HEU workshop!” – CLARE
“Wow! Nicole & Jeny go above & beyond to put together structured & informative workshops, and at bargain prices! With their combined knowledge, they took away any doubt I had of being able to write my report for the Home Education Unit, using the different strategies of finding useful data & sample collection. The amount of time Nicole & Jeny forfeit, shows the dedication they have to help other homeschooling parents like me. I’ll definitely be attending more workshops to pick at their brains.”- CHARLOTTE
“Absolutely brilliant! Jeny and Nicole prepared meticulous notes and presented a quality workshop that I would thoroughly recommend to new and seasoned homeschoolers.” – CATHERINE

“I’m a Raving Fan of you ladies, because of the sheer care that you put into your sessions!!! I genuinely am grateful for all the time and content you have put together that I can now take my time to navigate through at my own pace. You have provided a nurturing & respectful space for us mums & dads that simply need support through the process. Thank you so, so much!!!” Beck
“I enrolled in your workshop not knowing if I was doing enough or if I was capable, not being a ‘teacher’ or an ‘academic.’ I left feeling even more confident with all I am doing and have done! I know my daughter and can fulfil her needs. Ahh! Relief! I can enjoy the process moving forward. Thank you, Nicole and Jeny.” Attendee
“Thank you for your time on Saturday. Today is my day to go over all the forms supplied and start organising my year. Although I have [already] registered and my learning plan was accepted without comment, I was still unsure how to actually follow through on what I wrote. Before the session, I would have freaked at the thought of the yearly review but the reality from your shared information [has made it] not scary for me now!!!” Attendee
“Thank you so much again for the wonderful workshop at the weekend. I have been making notes and doing research ready to put together our application. [My comments:] Great content; friendly instructors; very valuable being able to express my concerns and ask questions in real time.” Lorrie
“For me, getting my head around how to calculate the date for submission of my registration papers in relation to ‘the reporting date’ was gold; discussing how to do work sample annotations was something that made the requirement of the work samples make sense to me and I don’t know that I would have picked up on that if I hadn’t come to the workshop; the section about understanding the key criteria for a high quality education was super helpful and a great aspect of the workshop; all the references, handouts and examples given are really helpful; going through the plan from start to finish was good; and the e-book that you both created is a really amazing resource.” Monica
“The workshop helped me with confidence to go ahead and begin my registration application, and helped me with a structure of how to set it out and what to include. Thank you, it was much easier for me to begin after your session and I was able to steadily continue and complete it. Woo! I have provisional registration and will have to wait a few more months to hear back more.” Rachael

“As first time homeschoolers, we doubted whether we could be better teachers of our children than teachers at school. Nicole’s and Jeny’s personal stories and understanding of QLD government reporting requirements provided the right antidote.” – UMAR, Father of two.
“Nicole & Jeny had a caring and sensitive approach to their Homeschooling 101 session. The information was generous and very helpful to get us started. I really appreciated their knowledge on how to get started and the generosity of the resources they shared afterwards too. Thanks so much!” – BECK
“I’m glad I attended as it put to rest a few of my anxieties regarding homeschooling. It gave me a boost of confidence that as a parent, I am more than capable of facilitating the educational and learning opportunities that my child needs to grow into a curious, healthy and independent young adult. Listening to stories of your challenges and how you have overcome them were most beneficial and rewarding. Thank you.” – HANAN
Introduction to Home Education – Parent Workshop – December 2017.
“Jeny and Nicole, you two are lifesavers! After attending your information session today I now have a much clearer understanding of what I need to do in relation to homeschooling my 10 year old son. The session was so informative and all questions I had were answered. I left today with such a feeling of relief and also the strong conviction that I have made the right decision to homeschool! Thank you, thank you, thank you ladies!” – Crystal
