    Anyone done home schooling, are there any home school groups in Valencia / Duma?

    Wife and I have been considering moving to Valencia in about 12 - 18 months. Kids are doing really well in Australian schools just a bit concerned and looking at options.

    Thanks Mark, I was thinking of sending them to International school but its a bit expensive. Wife did International school in Cebu for awhile.

    We are hoping we could do the homeschool with the Australian education curriculum, not sure if thats possible.

    Yeah it is quite expensive, but that's the price one must pay for my charm, wit, and modesty.

    But seriously, although I doubt there are any home schooling groups following the Australian curriculum here, I'm sure it's not that difficult with a bit of online research and preparation.

    The big question is.....can you maintain sanity being with your kids 24/7? :wink:

    Great - I am a firm believer in self-tuition. Rather than educate the masses with what they don't ever need to know, best to educate them to find out WHERE to locate what they DO need to know.
