My Homeschool Co-op Experience

When we first started homeschooling, i had thought about joining a co-op, but at the time it didn’t make sense as we were pretty unstable (moving state to state, pregnancies, etc.). Come January 2019, 6 years into homeschooling, we finally joined a co-op for the first time.

Towards the middle of January, i had heard about a new co-op starting the first week of February. I had been praying so hard in the months leading up to that, that something might come along for our children, as i was just feeling like they were needing something more. Some other people to connect with, who live similar lives.

I went to the information meeting the week before the first classes were to start. I was honestly pretty nervous (being that i’m a really shy introvert) and was continually trying to talk myself out of going to that meeting all day long. But i’m glad i forced myself to go and even more pleased that we joined this co-op.

Most of my kids were on board for joining a co-op, a few were hesitant, but after our first day all of my kids loved it and couldn’t wait for the next week.

Now, because we have never been a part of a co-op before, i have nothing to compare it to. I do know, that since this was this co-op’s first year, things were pretty much trail and error. And i believe next semester will run even more smoothly.

If you have been wanting to give a co-op a try, but have been on the fence about it, I say go for it, the worst that could happen is you absolutely hate it, and if that happens you can always drop out. You won’t know until you try, right?
