I have began homeschooling my child last week due to the fact that she cannot get into the Head Start Program. I am so far so good loving it, but at the same time am not sure if I am teaching her all of the right things to get her ready for school. She is very intelligent, but I feel that she needs to be around other kids her age(4) as of today. Does anyone know of a play group in which she can meet friends once or twice a week?

Thank you all.

Thank you so much Donika. I live in Wilmington, NC. I am praying that everything works out for the best. How long have you been homeschooling and how old are your girls? Thank you again.

where do you live? I'm 28 and am a homeschooling mom, with three girls.you could enroll your child in CAVA (California Virtual Academies, ie. K12) and you would get a list of homeschooling parents in your area, or you could goggle your area and homeschool play group, Yahoo has thousands of groups I'm sure.

Thank you so much. I have actually went online and emailed many homechool groups, but have not received any reply back. I am actually thinking about taking a class at the community college in Wilmington, NC to become a certified Substitute Teacher as well as Homeschool Teacher. I am loving it so far. I take her to the gym with me so that she can have social time with kids in the daycare there. I just checked out a Hooked on Phonics kit at the Public Library today so that she can begin working on vowel sounds tomorrow. I am so excited. Thank you again.

Congrats on homeschooling! i was homeschooled and will homeschool my kids. I'm don't know where you live but you can look for a homeschooling support group in your area. There is also meetup.com where you can look for playgroups in your area. Good luck!!
