(Espanol) Introductory Seminar — Nuts & Bolts

(Homeschool How-To’s)

Do you have questions or concerns about how to realistically accomplish homeschooling your child or children of different ages and grade levels? You might be considering, or have just started teaching your children at home, and feel overwhelmed by the task. Dr. Pietersma presents this practical workshop to learn how to prepare your home, prioritize your time, schedule your day, and take homeschooling one day at a time until you hit your stride.

(Espanol) Introductory Seminar — Colorado Homeschool Law

(Homeschool How-To’s)

This workshop is for you if you know you want to homeschool, but you’re not sure how to do it legally. Douglas Pietersma will cover the legal requirements of Colorado’s Homeschool Law, so that you can be confident that you are homeschooling legally! Perhaps you have heard that Colorado Law also allows families to homeschool under the umbrella of a private school, such as the CHEC Independent School. We will cover the basics of this option as well.
