Did You Know?!?!

With only a whopping 66 days left of registration and the holidays barreling down upon us, we just wanted to be sure you knew that we had your backs!?



It has always been our intent to help as many needing and wanting folks get to the Unschoolers Platform as possible. This year is no exception, as we have “So Much Great to Celebrate.” We do our best to be sure to offer as many options and opportunities to our dear beloved community and also cover the costs of running this phenomenal event. If you missed some of our previous promos and still want to come, are you aware of our standing payment plan option? Our payment plan has been implemented from the get-go but not many know it exists! We want to be sure that you know there are options! We will support you! And we want you and your family there to celebrate our incredible lives together!

Pop on over to our registration page and see how it breaks down. And if you have questions or concerns, email us (unschoolersplatform@gmail.com)!!!

If we don’t know, we can’t help! ūüėČ

With So Much Great to Celebrate, we want to have you there this February 2017!!!

Only 66 days left to register at the regular registration rates!



Meet Heather!

As the countdown for registration for the 2017 Unschoolers Platform rolls on we are eagerly planning some exciting workshop, talks and funshops for our amazing community! Topics will be vast, interesting and inspiring! One such topic…. worldschooling! If you have not yet met Heather, I’m pleased to introduce you! You will not want to miss her discussion at 2017 UP!


I’m Heather Clark, wannabe world traveler, vegan, Nintendo gamer, wife and mom to always unschooled 9yo son Jamie.¬†I do yoga and love sailing, baking, hand sewing, Bollywood movies and UK soaps.¬†Our family came to unschooling naturally as an extension of our attachment parenting. I believe there’s nothing more fabulous¬†than living and learning in partnership with our son!¬†We self identify as a worldschooling family and love to travel.
Join her wonderful talk:
Worldschooling – Seeing the world as your school
Worldschooling is about seeing the world as your classroom and striving to learn through adventure, experience and travel. But even if you can’t travel full time – or at all – you can still help your kids get excited about the wonders of the world and begin to see themselves as global citizens. Join in a discussion about learning via experiences, and how the world always has something to teach.
To get registered, visit our Unschoolers Platform registration page!

Come add your wisdom, anecdotes and thoughts!!
Bring your questions, concerns and ideas!!!
There will be opportunity for all to participate as we take a magic carpet ride through the wonders of having made the choice to home/unschool!!
Vlaiko Manojlovski has been organically settling into the unschooling lifestyle for the last 7 years. ¬†The process has literally unfolded on its own and just gets better everyday!! ¬†Having gone to school this was all counterintuitive out of the gate!! ¬†But the realistic, practical and hard driving truths of the amazing benefits and overall life quality that have come to pass as the result of following his heart have anchored his value systems and philosophies in newly chartered waters – creating a life filled with parenting a-ha moments, deeper connections with his family and a whole lotta’ fun!!!
There will be more than one gathering so stay tuned for details!!

Meet Sandra!

We are excited as the time ticks nearer and nearer! The funshops are scheduled if you have not seen them yet! And our speakers eagerly plan their talks with all of us. One of those amazing people is Sandra! If you have not met her yet, I’m pleased to introduce you to her! She will be joining our eclectic panel of amazing homeschool parents to discuss philosophies and the day-in-the-life. We are SO thrilled she will be joining us in just a few weeks!!!


Sandra Estrada – mom to two life-learning children, ages 14 and 11. As a family, our time is spent exploring whatever piques our curiosity. We love to travel, have been to over 10 countries, and road tripped through at least half of the US. I’m looking forward to connecting with seasoned and new homeschoolers at UP. My hope is that sharing our family’s experience will help others on their educational journey.


There is still time to register! Join us!!!
