Local (Nashville) Homeschool Resources

One of the first things I did when I started thinking about homeschooling was to find online resources. I wanted to just browse without anyone knowing what I was considering. Saying it out loud would make it official. Looking around the Internet was harmless and mainly just to appease my curiosity. Rather, I was trying to convince myself that it wasn’t possible. Some of my first searches on Pinterest were “How to Homeschool and Work Full Time” and “Homeschooling an Only Child”.  

Next, I sought out local resources. I have several web bookmarks for local information.

Then, I looked for groups on Facebook that I could connect with and this is what I found.
These are all great forums to ask questions and get quick feedback or just to search through old posts for information. 
However, my favorite local resource has been, hands down, the Nashville Homeschool Calendar
This group finds fun things to do in and around Nashville and gets awesome group rates for homeschoolers. They find out about the coolest events and activities. Stuff I didn’t even know existed in Middle TN. There are probably 10-15 different options offered each month. You can choose to attend one, none, or all of them. Up to you. Many of them are free. For the paid field trips, I love that we are able to get a “group” discount which makes it really affordable. Here are just a few of the field trips we have been on 
  • Nashville Symphony 
  • Traveller’s Rest (my recap)
  • TN History Festival
  • Clay Lady Studio
  • TN State Museum

I’m so thankful to have found this group and we are excited to continue field tripping with them again this year. Some field trips are really small with just a few families attending while others are really big with lots of people. I just appreciate the opportunity to find out what’s going on in the community and to take advantage of the programs and discounts offered to homeschoolers. It’s been a great experience for us and a nice compliment to our daily curriculum.

I hope the above resources help you get connected to local groups and information here in Nashville. It’s certainly not a comprehensive list, as Nashville has so much to offer, but these are the sites that my family utilizes most frequently.
