Heritage Home Learners Christian Homeschool Support Group
Who Are We?
Heritage Home Learners was established in the 1980's as a Christian support group for homeschooling families in the Surrey and surrounding areas The main purpose of the group is to provide meaningful support and encouragement in a Christ-centered environment. We are an independent home school support group, not connected to any school or organization.
Unity in Diversity
We all homeschool in our own way, with our own style. Some use formal structured learning, and some build their own curriculum. Some families are enrolled with government funded programs, others homeschool independently and are registered with the school / program of their choice. No two families are alike and the needs of each family are different. We all share the same goal however; to educate our children as best we can utilizing our own personal gifts and the opportunities that we feel led to invest in.
By choosing to register with Heritage Home Learners, we choose to support and mentor each other in our diversity. This does not require that we adopt the same style or philosophy of homeschooling as other members, rather we choose to respect the homeschooling choices of other families, realizing that God leads different families in different directions. Diversity gives our group a unique richness. When registering as a member of HHL, we are choosing to embrace the diverse families in this group, thus supporting each other in our unique journey.
The purpose of this website is to support Christian home educating families of the Surrey, North Delta, New West and White Rock area by providing:
· Information for face-to-face personal support and dialogue at our monthly meetings with home educating families (traditional and D.L families). See 'Calendar' tab. The meeting location includes use of our HHL library resources (a privilege of paid membership).
· Connections to resources - homeschool organizations and businesses that support the educational journey and specific needs of home schooling families. This includes legal, legislative, curriculum, Distance Ed schools and community services that are available. This website intentionally promotes local support organizations, and encourages homeschool families to investigate the many local extracurricular opportunities that are available. Contact information is available on the specific resource ‘tabs’ of our website.
HHL has further opportunity for personal interaction and activity information available through our private Yahoo and Google groups for our group members. See the 'Membership specifics' tab for addresses and how to join the group of your choice to receive homeschool related email information.
Heritage Home Learners support group accepts homeschool specific advertising, giving priority to local service providers. See the ‘order form’ at the bottom of this page for prices, advertisement format recommendations and other information. Paid ads are valid for 1 year. The Heritage Home Learners support group is not-for-profit; the funds raised from advertising are used to offset the costs of meeting room rental and library storage of our group.
