Get to go to the Philippine Homeschool Conference 2015 with an All-Access Pass!

By 8:57 AM , , , , , ,

For about a year now, I have been homeschooling my toddlers and it's been quite an enjoyable journey for us. One important thing I've learned so far, is that we parents are the best teachers for our children. They learn so much from us, not just academically speaking, but holistically... Because parents influence their children from birth... I'm sure you'd agree.

Luckily, for homeschooling families, there are a lot of resources online and offline nowadays. 



This October 17, Homeschool Association of the Philippine Islands (HAPI), Manila Workshops and The Learning Basket bring you the largest homeschooling conference this year – “The Philippine Homeschool Conference 2015: Ready for the World!”

As a precursor to the “Global Home Education Conference” (GHEC) in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in March 2016, two well-respected homeschool advocates and speakers from the United States will be gracing the event as keynote speakers: Michael Donnelly, Director for Global Outreach of the Homeschool Legal Defense Association (HSLDA) and Secretary of GHEC 2016, and Rachael Carman, mother of seven and best-selling author and publisher of popular homeschool science curriculum Apologia. Rachael’s husband, Davis, the President of Apologia, will be speaking as well.

Sought-after speaker and homeschooling advocate Edric Mendoza, host of On The Money and homeschooling dad of five will also be speaking. Chinkee Tan, motivational speaker and wealth coach, will be speaking as well.

Homeschoolers and those exploring this educational option will be inspired, informed and empowered in this biggest homeschooling event.  

Definitely bigger than the past years’ homeschool conferences“Ready for the World!” will be held at THREE venues at SM Aura Premiere. Keynote talks will be held at the Samsung Hall, while smaller workshops and the much awaited homeschool expo will be at the SMX Convention Center.

There will also be a huge expo of the various learning providers, educational tools, toys, books, etc. that will help homeschooling parents and aspiring homeschooling parents. This expo will be open to the public for a minimal amount of Php 50 per head, but is already included in the All Access Pass.

But wait! There's more!

There will also be Arts & Crafts Workshops for the kids and kids at heart.



While you are soaking up all the goodness that the homeschool conference has to offer, let your kids have their own learning moments in any of the following activities. Participation in each workshop is P500 per person, materials included. They will accept only 25 students per class so better register now.

Oh I am just excited to go! And the great news is...

One of my readers will get a chance to win an All-Access Pass for FREE!

The All Access Pass (pass to go in and out of all three venues, including the exposition venue) is valued at Php 1000. But this does not include fees to the Arts and Crafts Workshops.

Good luck and Hope to see you there!

    1. Hi Nilyn, for preschoolers, you can start by reading them books and simply learning through play. They don't formally a curriculum but a guide would be helpful. I have some posts here that may help you and my What, Why, How to homeschool post has a list of some online resources.

  2. Homeschooling is super interesting. I just don't feel like it's "for" us. It's still in my thoughts though.

    1. Hi Kimberly, the term "homeschooling" is not limited to teaching kids from home and not letting them go to a brick and mortar school.. I believe homeschooling to be more of a parent and child bonding where both learn through various lessons and interests, and as a parent, we teach our kids naman naturally, that is already homeschooling in a sense :) Maybe what I'm trying to say is, learning continues at home, and parents are a great influence :)

  6. At one point, I considered home schooling my 2nd child. But I was a working mother then, and didn't find it feasible. But I believe in its benefits, though...

    1. Same lang tayo :) we're delaying my son's Kindergarten for next year :) In other countries like Denmark and Finland, children get formal education at school at the age of 7! Can you believe that? I hope for the meantime, you can gather resources from my posts here :) Regards!

    1. Hi mommy, for preschoolers, you can start by reading them books and simply learning through play kahit 30 minutes to 2 hours a day lang. They don't formally a curriculum but a guide would be helpful. I have some posts here that may help you and my What, Why, How to homeschool post has a list of some online resources.

  13. We, Parents are our child's best teacher because we know their interests, character and well-being more than anyone else. Homeschooling them requires intentional parenting by personalizing lesson plans according to their interests, understanding their pace and molding their character by God's grace. - Lisette Dionisio
