Welcome to the Manawatu Home Educators website. We’re a large group of Home Educating families who live in the Manawatu with our main “base of operations” centered around 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 for example. We organise a range of activities each term both regular (weekly or fortnightly) and one-off or shorter duration activities.  On top of this, we also have events such as our Athletics Day, Home & Country Show, Family Ball and Science Fair. We also operate a Resource Library which has a wide range of books, curricula, manipulatives and much more. The group has a diverse range of members with many different homeschooling philosophies being followed.
