I was wondering if there's any homeschooling / unschooling community in North Shore who do things/learning together or just get-together for fun... I would like to come and meet people who are similarly to us not happy with the public system... and ask my - probably very basic - questions... or just sit quitely and observe...
we have an almost 6 years old daughter and thinking about homeschooling (among other options)
Hi there. To get involved with the homeschooling community or find more about homeschooling in your area, try these:

Lots of activities.

National Council of Home Educators NZ (NCHENZ) - www.nchenz.org.nz
The national body - good overview of home ed.
There are also lots of national email loops run on Yahoo such as NZ Home Educators, NZ Unschoolers, etc, which give support and knowledge. Join one or two and check out the message archives before asking away.
