Welcome to Homeschool Singapore! We’ve been around since 2013 but we just revamped our website. Our goal is to promote homeschooling in Singapore. We work hard to build connections to homeschool communities, businesses and organisations for opportunities to partner together. Homeschoolers are active contributors in community work, education and social causes. If you are interested to reach out to the local homeschool community, write to us.
First, homeschooling means parents are the primary educators of their children. It is not an after school job or another enrichment programme. Homeschooling parents take ownership of their children’s education, within the framework of holistic development of mind, body, and soul.
Second, homeschooling in Singapore is unique. The community is a melting pot of expats and locals. Some families school and homeschool different children. Sometimes we think it is the most diverse, inclusive, international school in Singapore that’s free.
While the Ministry of Education (MOE) makes education compulsory across all learning spectrums i.e. special needs from 2019, homeschooling in Singapore remains an attractive option for:
- Singaporean parents who look to a customised learning environment for their children
- expats in Singapore who desire a cheap, good and mobile education for their children
- expats who already homeschool in their own countries and wish to continue doing so here
Homeschooling has been featured in the local media more, as younger parents seek alternative pathways of learning to suit their family vision or needs.
We hope this site helps you with critical information about homeschooling in Singapore, and encourages you to believe in its possibilities.
