Welcome to LIFE of Florida!

Our secular and inclusive Florida-wide Informal Education support group acts as a resource center and clearinghouse for homeschoolers, informal learners and alternative educators interested in enriching their learning environments and maximizing their learning opportunities, as well as an advocacy center for Curiosity Driven Learning.

There is no cost to be part of LIFE of Florida -- just join in at our email discussion and announcement list, Florida LIFE, where you can download your membership card -- good for educational discounts throughout FL -- and stay informed and updated on events, issues and resources, and connect with other informal learners throughout the state.

If you're just getting started in homeschooling, be sure to check out our LIFE of Florida Quick Links, our list of Useful Docs, and our enormous collection of resources in the side columns, and visit our Inclusive Homeschool Support Groups page to find a group near you.

If you'd like your regional inclusive support group to be networked with LIFE of Florida, drop us a line with a group description, contact and other relevant information and we'll add you, free of charge, to our directory. All your group members will be automatically considered members of LIFE of Florida, and are entitled to membership cards and all the benefits we offer. Virtual school families are also welcome to enjoy our resources, support and camaraderie.

We're all inclusive and free of charge, and we're here for you!

Tennessean.com takes Note of Tapestry of Homeschool Survey

From Tennessean.com

...A frequent question fellow home-schoolers like to quiz each other with is: How do you do school? Learning is for Everyone is an organization sponsoring an online survey to help answer that question.

Responses to "How do you do school?" can vary, and for some families may even change from year to year and child to child. Learning is for Everyone (http://www.learningis4everyone.org) is based out of Florida. It was originally conceived as an informal, statewide home-school support group. Over a five-year period, the group evolved into an overall learning resource. The Web site contains lots of information on a variety of educational opportunities available to families.

The Tapestry of Homeschool survey has been compiled as an opportunity for other home
schoolers to communicate to the public and each other their educational methods. The survey may be found at http://s-akxqb-40779.sgizmo.com/. The questions were compiled from input by more than 100 home-schooling families in eight different states.
