Homeschooling is on the rise nationwide. You may be considering homeschooling in Las Vegas area, but not sure where to start. That was me, last fall! I’m sharing what I’ve learned along with awesome resources, books, groups, and more!
Here are three great books that helped me when I was considering homeschooling.
If your child is enrolled in a Nevada public school prior to homeschooling you have to officially withdraw your child from the public school.
Contact the school’s principal to do so. You have 10 days after withdrawing your child to submit the Notice of Intent (NOI) to Homeschool to the Superintendent.
If your child hasn’t ever attended public school then you need to file your NOI by the age of 7. But If your child is 5 or 6 and already enrolled in a public school you do need to file an NOI to Homeschool within 10 days of officially withdrawing from public school.

We are a homeschool co-op, a nature group, or we like to think of us as a forest school in the desert. Programs are offered for Ages 0-6 and they offer a Nature Walking Group for all ages, as well as a Kinder Prep program.
This is run by a local mama and all programs are parent-child centered.
