Whether you are an experienced home school parent or are seeking an alternative to the public school system, Willow Home Ed is ready to help you ensure your children succeed in a home school program of your choice.

Willow Home Ed serves families in communities throughout Alberta.  We support families in developing and delivering home school programs that meet their their needs. We believe programming should be personalized and dynamic and that it takes a whole community working together in partnership to raise a child. There are as many effective homeschooling styles as there are children. We view building relationships with our families fundamental to student success.
We work with students of all abilities and learning needs and are welcoming of all families, irrespective of religion, races, creed, gender identity, and sexual orientation. We would love the opportunity to help your family achieve its educational goals.
