Welcome to Homeschool Singapore! We build connections to homeschool communities, businesses and organisations for opportunities to partner together. Homeschoolers are active contributors in education, community work and social causes. Read our story of how we have evolved as a community. We hope this site helps you with critical information about homeschooling in Singapore, and encourages you to believe in its possibilities. If you are interested in reaching out to the local homeschool community, contact us.

Hear From The Contributors

The Homeschool Information Guide is a free, quick and handy reference for those who are starting out to explore homeschooling. Instead of answering repetitive questions, it alleviates the workload of the Homeschool Consultation team to reach a wider audience, making space to channel more time and attention to queries requiring higher level support. We hope our readers will find the Information Guide relevant and useful as one of their first stops in their homeschooling journey.

–Dawn Fung, Founder of Homeschool Singapore

When the Homeschool Consultation team mooted the idea of publishing their own internal guidelines in the form of an Information Guide for the public, I felt that it was a great way to lower the barrier of entry to homeschooling, and equip families with the knowledge and resources to homeschool.

The Homeschool Information Guide 2022 was supposed to have been published last month in March. Despite the slight delay, its release just after the Homeschool Convention 2022: Asia Edition makes it a timely tool to propel the momentum of learning and discovery for those who are new to homeschooling.
