Guide To Attending a Homeschool Expo

Have you stayed away from the Homeschool Expo just because of the magnitude of it all?  Looking at the listing of workshops or a peak into the exhibit hall can give you a deer in the headlights look!  Where do you start?

  • Plan ahead by reading about the available workshops and making a note of when it will be held.  If there are two you want to attend at the same time, consider which would be best to attend and get the other on CD.  If you go with a friend or a spouse, you can each attend one and share notes afterwards.
  • Have a list of curriculum you want to look over.  Plan on taking the time you need and ask the exhibitors your questions.
  • Know your prices.  If you buy at the conference it will save on shipping, but you will want to have some kind of luggage or cart on wheels to save your strength.
  • Do you have a budget?  If you do, don’t spend it all at once!  The school year is long and you will probably need something else before the year is out.

Attending the Homeschool Expo is educational and exciting.  The workshops and exhibitors are there for you.  You might also want to consider Homeschooling for Excellence, a one day conference for beginning homeschoolers.

Homeschooling for Excellence 101 Video Reviews

Yesterday, new homeschoolers or parents thinking about homeschooling were able to attend the Homeschooling for Excellence 101 one-day seminar at the 2010 Southeast Homeschool Expo.  Many parents came away encouraged and ready to start a totally new experience with their children – AND THEY WERE EXCITED!  Here is what some of them said:

If you weren’t able to attend, you can contact us for how to purchase the CDs. And plan on attending next year!!

Are Children Welcome at the Southeast Homeschool Expo?

One question we get asked quite frequently is “Are children welcome at the Southeast Homeschool Expo?”

Our answer??  YES!

We work very hard making the Southeast Homeschool Expo a FAMILY event.  Moms, dads, and children are all welcome to attend.  Children under 18 can attend FREE with their parents on Friday and Saturday to the Expo Exhibit Hall.  There are many activities available for the kids – a game area, a rock climbing wall, exhibitors that have many items available to purchase for your kids, and workshops where children are encouraged to come.

When you take your children with you to any of the workshops, please be mindful of the speakers and other parents.  If your child becomes noisy, we ask that you quietly remove them from the workshop.

There are two exceptions to “children are FREE”.  One is KidsZone which is only available on Thursday during the Homeschooling for Excellence 101 Conference.  The other is the Worldview Teen Track.  Both of those events will have a fee.
