Welcome to the website of Manawatu Home Educators.

We are a group of home educating families who live in the Manawatu surrounding Palmerston North.  While many of our members are situated in or close to Palmerston North, others come from further afield: Feilding, Woodville, Pahiatua, Bulls, Marton, Tokomaru, Foxton.

Manawatu Home Educators offers a number of benefits to members – including social gatherings, member support, a variety of regular activities, a Resource Library housing a wide range of resources,  and much more.

We have a diverse range of members with many different homeschooling philosophies being followed.
