One afternoon in early September 2019, there will be a Not Back To School Picnic. This is an informal community meetup for play and chat. Newcomers are very welcome.
If you’re a new home edder or potential future home edder, and you want to find out when & where it is, you could:
- get onto the East Midlands Home Education email list, or one of the local home ed Facebook groups
- email picnic – organiser at non – school – nottingham dot org dot uk (take out the spaces and convert dot to “.” and at to “@”).
More about the picnic
People taking part will bring their own food to a park. The children will play while the adults chat. (Or sometimes the children chat and the adults play!)
If you’re new, we’ll try to introduce you to people with similar age children or similar interests, or people from your geographical area.
This year, we hope to include the parachute game which has become popular at the “teens-ish meetups”, enabling any shy young people to get to know each other a bit without having to talk.
