Hi, I’m Helen and I home educated all my three children for a total of 30 years. Phew!
I love creating downloadable resource packs especially for home educating families. Many of my packs were actually used by my own children and as they grew, I continued to write more based on the methods and ideas that worked for my kids. All my packs are designed to nurture a love of learning that will last a lifetime :)
