Kids LIFE! (Kids Learning In Fun Everywhere!) is a group of homeschooling families in Northern Nevada that meets for weekly playgroups, field trips, and group activities. This group does not focus on individual educational styles, rather it is about giving our children the opportunity to get together and learn in a natural and fun way. It also provides parents with adult socialization and support. We are a very active group!

We love welcoming new families into our group. If you feel that this might be the group for you and your family, please send us an email at Admin@KidsLIFEnv.org introducing your family. We’d love to hear where you are in your homeschooling journey, wherever that might be (even if you are just trying to decide whether homeschooling is right for you).

Liberal Homeschoolers in Northern Nevada
Lib·er·al: broad-minded; especially : not bound by authoritarianism, orthodoxy, or traditional forms. Home·school: to teach (one’s children) at home
This is a group for liberal-minded homeschoolers in the Reno and the Northern Nevada area to connect for support, discussion, playgroups, and activities. All members are encouraged to post homeschool related and liberal-minded information. Members are also encouraged to suggest, organize and create activities / events for liberal homeschooling families in our area.
All philosophies and methods of home education are welcome. All races, religions, ages, social backgrounds, and lifestyles are encouraged to participate. We are a diverse and open-minded community.


Advisors, mentors, consultants…the name for a veteran homeschooler, or someone else well-versed in homeschooling, who is willing to spend time with new/interested families.

An advisor is not the teacher. The parent is the teacher, and the advisor aids the parent in beginning their homeschooling journey.

There are compensated and uncompensated advisors….it is important in your search to ask a few pertinent questions, such as:

  • How much homeschooling experience do you have?
  • Do you charge? If so, how much?
  • Are you available throughout the year?
  • What will you provide for me? support group contacts, etc?
  • What is your teaching philosophy? Can you explain different ones to me?

We do not endorse any of the advisors listed. Each individual should determine compatibility with the advisor, based on family needs and expectations.

We do not currently have a list of uncompensated advisors. If a homeschooler in Washoe County is willing to be listed here and spend some time answering questions, helping with paperwork, and giving general homeschooling information please contact NHN.
