Does anyone from Kansas know about homeschooling? We've decided to homeschool our kids for now, because we feel our oldest especially will do better with then one on one. I've looked online, and saw that from 1st-12th grade you had to registar. But it said nothing about prek or kindergarden. Do we have to registar to teach prek as homeschool? Also does anyone know any homeschool groups in the kansas city area?Answer Question
You can find out what the laws are in your state by visiting HSLDA STATE LAWS. I really do not know Kansas laws but I highly doubt that you will have to register prior to 1st grade, because in MOST states Pre-K and Kindergarten are NOT required. Yes, I know the schools have them. The schools here in Illinois have them too but compulsory law in Illinois does not start until the child is 7, thus Kindergarten and/or Pre-K is NOT a requirement. Compulsory laws starts at 7 in Kansas too. So I'm confident that you don't have to worry about anything until your child has reach compulsory age. As for finding a local homeschooling group. I check out your local library, talk w/the children's librarian. Join some of the homeschooling groups here on CM or google search for social sites just for homeschooling mothers. (The Homeschool Lounge).
