Hello there! My name is Ashley and I’m from beautiful Nova Scotia, Canada. As a trained Early Childhood Educator and Educational Support Worker, I’ve spent many years working with children and helping them learn and grow.
For the past 8 years, I’ve been homeschooling my own children, and it has been an amazing experience. We’ve traveled across 3 provinces while homeschooling, and it has been a great way to learn about different cultures, history, and nature.
In addition to homeschooling, my family and I are homesteaders who are passionate about living a self-sufficient lifestyle. We’re constantly learning more about raising animals, gardening, and exploring the great outdoors. We love the satisfaction that comes from growing our own food and taking care of our animals. You can learn more about that on our homestead blog, Little Red Acres.
As a homeschooling mom and homesteader, I’ve seen firsthand the benefits of outdoor education and hands-on learning. That’s why I’ve decided to create a unit study membership program come August 2023 that focuses on nature and being outside. The program is designed to help homeschoolers of all ages learn more about the environment, wildlife, and sustainable living.
Each month, members of the program will receive a new unit study that includes lesson plans, activities, and resources. They’ll also have access to a supportive community of homeschoolers who share their passion for nature and the outdoors.
I’m excited about the potential of this program to make a difference in the lives of homeschoolers and their families. If you’re interested in learning more, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with me. Thank you for taking the time to get to know me and my work.
