HEART is a Madison, WI area inclusive homeschool support group -

      Homeschoolers Exploring Activities and Resources Together


HEART seeks to foster an egalitarian, inclusive, homeschooling support group to enhance the homeschooling experience of our members.   We encourage, nurture, affirm and celebrate family centered learning in a welcoming and supportive environment.  We provide opportunities for our children to learn from others in the group and engage in activities that further their interests.  We also provide opportunities for members to ask questions and voice concerns regarding homeschooling.



To accomplish our purpose, HEART has the following resources:


Yahoo group for support, sharing opportunities, questions, and thoughts

Member directory

Weekly Park Day / Open Gym Day
Monthly Potlucks
Not Back to School Party
Group Ticket Sales for local theatre productions
Plus many other activities arranged by HEART members 
For immediate support please contact: HEARTnewmembercontact@gmail.com


We all choose what best fits our families.  You are always free to offer an activity, trip, club, party or event to the group.  Don't feel shy!  Not everyone wants to do every thing.  Some folks want to try everything!  Offer what excites you and your family--park days, meet-ups at museums, origami, playing in the mud, book clubs, cooking together, Minecraft, chess, digging a big hole, building a garage, laboratory science, writing a novel, dyeing silk--you never know who you will meet! 


It is requested that people leave religion and politics off the yahoo group discussion list because we are here primarily because we choose not to have our children in school. 


We look forward to getting to know you and your family!!
