Home Education

     Educating your own child:      a God-given privelege

HOME EDUCATION

Home education originated from the mind of God as the best plan for educating all children. From the beginning of the world, God established the home as the centre of education. Adam and Eve were educated in their Eden home as God’s first children in this world (Genesis 1:26-28; 2:8, 15). The home was a place of family life, work, learning and training. Home and education were intimately interwoven and inseparable. Starting with Cain and Abel, all children were to have an education in the home (Genesis 4:1, 2).
