Thinking about homeschooling your preschooler—or know someone who is?

As parents, we know these exuberant years are the most critical—and often the most engaging—time to set up our children for a lifetime of successful learning.

For that reason, HEAV encourages parents to explore the wonderful world of homeschooling early by offering free convention registration to parents of just preschoolers.

That’s right! If your eldest child is aged four or under and you have never been to the convention before, you come to the whole convention—FREE.

Yes, There Is a Track for Early Learners!
