Peachtree City Funschoolers
Peachtree City Funschoolers (PTCF) is a support group for unschooling families in and around Peachtree City, GA.
We meet to have fun! This is to provide an opportunity for the kids to play together and for the Moms and Dads to visit. We offer organized activities based on the desires of the children in the group and at the monthly meetings, where the children are welcome to share their latest interests with the other kids, like a demo or such. We try to go to places that are free to low cost, with an eye toward everyone’s budget. We try to meet weekly or as often as interests, weather, and work and other schedules permit.

Idaho

Child-led Learning
We are a group of parents around the Treasure Valley (Idaho) who are beginning a local support group for homeschooling w/ an emphasis on child-led learning (some are unschoolers and some incorporate child-led learning into their days in other ways).

North Idaho Unschoolers
North Idaho Unschoolers is a relaxed network of homeschooling families that share the joy of child led learning together. The purpose of this list is to create a community of like-minded unschooling families in the Inland Northwest in order to provide support, discussions and real life get-to-togethers. We like to have fun with our children and each other! We believe that the best kind of learning (really the only kind) occurs when people are enjoying themselves to the fullest, following their hearts and embracing life in all its complexities. Please join us if these words resonate with you in anyway. Share stories about your own family and unschooling experience; it is with open minds and hearts that we learn from one another.

Free Range Homeschoolers
This group is open to all individuals interested in homeschooling. The organizers are located near Louisville, Kentucky, so many group activities will be focused on that area (but are not limited to just Jefferson County).

All ages are welcome and encouraged, as we feel children learn from everyone, not just from their age group.
