Join Us

As home educators we choose to work independently to educate our children.  Unification as a group is important so that we are kept abreast of changes in the province which might affect our ability and freedom to home educate. If we stand as a group we can make positive changes to home educating and be ready to take action if needed.  Organization is important in matters such as these. (The names of members are kept confidential and are NOT shared with outside organizations.)

NSHEA is an inclusive group and represents all home educators in Nova Scotia supporting all styles and approaches to home education. Together, we can be seen as one voice safeguarding the rights of all home educators in the province.

Membership is $10 per year, paid by EMT to
