Headstart Homeschooling

Learning Happens EVERYWHERE. We’re building a ‘school of the future’ to help you provide a holistic, conscious and intentional education for your children, during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond…and give your kids a headstart in life.

These are difficult times. Schools are closed or your children are returning in less than ideal circumstances. Suddenly, you’re expected to help educate your children at home using plans from school (or not!), with no teacher training, no equipment and everybody under one roof, working and learning together. You may be going crazy, trying to stay calm and figure it all out…

  • How do I create an actual ‘curriculum’ from the overwhelming list of activities everyone’s posting on my Facebook feed?
  • The kids hate the stuff school’s providing. How do I “make” them learn?
  • What if they get so behind they can’t catch up?
  • What if this continues for months or we get wave after wave, and the schools never return to ‘normal’?

We can help with each and every one of these scenarios and specialise in providing support for parents alongside exceptional learning resources for your children…

How We Can Help

We have educational resources and support that suit all kinds of approaches – those who need highly structured plans, those who prefer a looser, more flexible approach, and everything in between. We can help you if…

  • You’d like to broaden and expand out from the resources school is providing, but still want to know your children are learning something.
  • You DON’T WANT to keep homeschooling when schools re-open but want to continue to have more input into your children’s education when they’re at home.
  • You’re enjoying the homeschooling journey and are considering continuing even when schools re-open.
  • You already homeschool but would like to join an online (global) community, especially while you’re stuck at home.

We know that one of the KEY challenges parents face when kids are learning at home is letting go of the need to control and trusting that whatever your children are doing, they’re STILL learning – we can help you be more conscious in what they learn when they’re at home with you. We can help you facilitate your children to learn ALL the skills they need to thrive, whether schools are open or not.

What People Say

As I first turned to homeschooling, I had the good fortune to have Jenn in my life. Jenn helped me to make informed decisions about what was best for our family; she was never prescriptive, always using gentle tools and her expertise and experience to help us discover the best way forward for us. 

During the inevitable moments of self-doubt, she was always encouraging, while given specific tips and advice – from curriculum to online resources in several languages. My two are now thriving teenagers, and our third, has also just completed nearly 3 years of homeschooling.

Tanya Murphy

We were losing our way in our home schooling and Jenn was an amazing resource; not only in areas of learning, but also in family life, travel and thinking globally.

She has ideas for all ages, abilities, learning styles, and personalities and takes your budget into account-having worldschooled four children (two who have reached adulthood) she has a wealth of experience and there is no sugarcoating.

I loved our Skype calls, as she was great at getting things into perspective and I wouldn't hesitate in recommending her."

Who We Are 

Lea Jovy and Jenn Miller of Headstart Homeschooling

We are Lea Jovy (UK) and Jennifer Miller (Canada). We met, online, over a decade ago. Between us, we have been homeschooling our children for over three decadesJenn has 4 kidults, Lea has two children (7 and 11) so we have plenty of experience of parenting and homeschooling between us. 

We’ve also both worked online throughout this time, and Lea was an early pioneer of location independence and working from anywhere, so we’re used to balancing work, kids, homeschooling and running a household too. Add in global and nomadic travel to the mix and you get an idea of the depth and breadth of our experience
