Leiden Home Learners (LHL) is a small network of home educating families that meet every week to play and learn. Our focus is on friendships, nature and creativity. We spend our time exploring together, having adventures, sharing ideas, collaborating on projects, and creating things. We share an eclectic resource library of books, games, toys, and art supplies.

We meet mostly on Tuesdays or Fridays, from 12-3pm. We meet in different museums, parks, beaches and venues most commonly in Leiden. About once a month, we have a meeting outside of Leiden.

The children of Leiden Home Learners live in many different cities. Although our children have friends from their individual neighbourhoods, communities, classes and clubs, we find it important to also nurture home education friendships. As parents, we place a high priority on providing these social opportunities for our children and to give our children space and time to get to know each other.

For some of our special events, we invite non-home educating children and their parents to come and join us. LHL children also do projects that benefit the wider Leiden community.

If you are a home educating family that would like to visit Leiden Home Learners, please get in touch with Rippy at leidenhomelearners@gmail.com to come to one of our open meetings.
