About Us

What we are

Wellington Home Education Network is a society incorporated under New Zealand law to support home educators and encourage home education as an educational choice in New Zealand.

WHEN supports over 200 home educating families in the Wellington region. We welcome inquiries from families who are already home educating as well as those who wish to know more about home education. We provide a communication network, a resource library and organize gatherings, workshops and outings for home educators to meet and learn together.


WHEN offers a range of services which we hope will assist members in their home educating journey. Our group runs because committed busy home educators (parents and children) take responsibility for tasks. Everyone is encouraged to contribute.

Here is a quick overview of the services we offer:
