About Charlene Chauvet-Swart

Charlene is a full time 'husband supporter', mother of one homeschooled child and a fearless retired sky diver and business owner, who has dedicated her life to her family and spends her spare time contributing and adding value to the homeschooling community, as well as assisting in developing programs and running workshops to help people who require relationship and self-development training and support. Charlene's biggest dream is to see all people transform to a place where everyone will act for the sake and benefit of the whole at large, in order to create a world that works for everyone, everywhere, ultimately leaving an inheritable world for our children and all future generations to come. Her favourite hobbies are baking, fire hoola-hooping, teaching children how to spin poi, and writing.

Concerning registration.


“When I first started homeschooling a few years ago I was utterly confused by the law – despite the fact that I am a qualified attorney holding a masters degree in law. After reading pieces of legislation, various websites and forums and talking to people at homeschooling expos, I came to the conclusion that the [...]

Nature Vs. Nurture – part 1

Review by Salomie Rademeyer (11):

Resensie deur Tristan Heckroodt (16)


Onderwêreld deur Fanie Viljoen. Onderwêreld is ’n jeugroman met ’n kinkel. Dis ’n fantastiese boek om hedendaagse kinders se konsentrasievermoë te verskerp. Die boek is uniek weens die manier waarop dit geskryf is, die konsentrasie wat dit benodig en die intensiteit van besonderhede. As ’n huidige 16-jarige kan ek onthou hoe ek n jaar terug [...]

Vyf-en-twintig boeke later en ek kan steeds nie wag om die volgende een te lees nie! Die oorspronklike Tom Swift reeks [...]

Different approaches to homeschooling.


As a homeschooling parent, one of the things I enjoy most about Homeschooling is the freedom to select from what seems like an endless array of inspirational ideas, educational styles, methodologies, experiential wisdom, whether made available on the internet or from books, curriculum, educators, and conferences. Homeschooling parents follow a vast array of educational approaches [...]
