Whether you are thinking about beginning to home educate, just entering the adventure, or have some years of experience behind you, we welcome you to SALT (Spiritual and Academic Learning Together). We trust that as a group we will be able to help meet the needs your family has that are specific to those who have chosen to educate their children at home.
SALT is a Christian organization begun in 2000 and is devoted to the support of homeschooling families in Aylmer and the surrounding area. We have a variety of activities scheduled throughout the year. Field trips, social family events, mom’s support group, co-operative educational opportunities (know as our LITE – Living in Thee Everyday – Days, which meet every other Friday afternoon), and parent socials are some of the events that we endeavour to provide. Membership includes free access to our website which is updated regularly. These updates allow the members to be informed of current events and changes in activities.
If any of us can be of help or encouragement to you, please take the time to leave a comment. We would be happy to answer your questions or refer you to someone who can.
Because SALT belongs to OCHEC (Ontario Christian Home Educators Connection), you automatically become a member of OCHEC when you become a member of our local support group. OCHEC is a province-wide network of individual homeschooling families, home education support groups, and private schools whose members are home educators. OCHEC endeavours to provide advice, encouragement, ideas, and resources to all members through research and dissemination of information at meetings, conferences, and in a regularly published newsletter. As well, you receive a discount if you decide to join HSLDA (Home School Legal Defense Association). HSLDA is an organization that provides legal advice, advocacy, and support for home educators.
More information can be obtained by leaving a comment below, including your email address (don’t worry only SALT Administration can see your email address). We will try to respond to you in timely fashion.
We hope you find this group a support to your homeschooling efforts. If you have any praises or concerns regarding SALT, please feel free to contact us at any time if we can be of help.
Thanks for visiting our homeschool website!
In His service and yours,
