My hubby and I are thinking about taking the kids out of school for 6 months and live in Canada (skiing). We would love them to experience a proper white winter and explore the wildlife in spring. All of our kids will still be primary school (years 5, 4 and 1). I would love to hear others experiences.

Want more real mum questions sent to you?

Ask your question

  • There may be some online communities or forums that can support you with this and provide some ideas.



  • As a child my brother and sisters were home schooled while we were living aboard a boat sailing up the east coast of Australia. We stopped at different places so dad or mum could get money from jobs. We did our lessons on beaches, on board the boat either downstairs or up top.
    Also remember if it is only for six months , that the northern Hemisphere school terms are different to the southern hemisphere. Winter there will be our summer time with not much schooling done. If staying in one place could even attend school there.



  • I think they’re young enough to nearly be able to get away with 6 months off school and not miss too much. But contact your local school and see what they suggest



  • Technology will also help with staying connected and with schooling when travelling and living abroad.



  • No experience with home schooling but I would suggest your local Educational facility would be able to assist you with home schooling support and ideas.
