Building Community One Family at a Time
KCHC is an intentional community of life-learning families committed to discovering, growing and enjoying life together while educating our children. We meet weekly to encourage each other while engaging in purposeful exploration and fun with our children.
As an inclusive community, we are diverse and ask that you and your family are respectful of all other members and their families online and in person. Please be respectful of those who may be different than you with regards to ability, ethnicity, race, gender, sexual identity, faith, religion, family size and family type.

Kid Cultivators Homeschool Community is an intentional and inclusive group for families ranging from new to homeschooling to experienced in homeschooling living in the Atlanta-metro area. Discussion topics focus on homeschooling, general learning, educational methods, and curricula to name a few. We share information on resources, field trips, activities and other information pertinent to our needs. Our group is interfaith and not affiliated with any one religion, denomination or spiritual path--we welcome everyone! We do not tolerate discrimination against people based on ethnicity, race, gender, sexual identity, faith, family size or type.
Kid Cultivators Homeschool Community has built a strong community in the form of a very active home school group. As a group we are here for each other, for encouragement, exchange of ideas, information and to share our passion for teaching and learning with our children. We meet in person, and often, some of us open our homes to others for activities, etc. Because of this, we may seem a little more cautious about who joins our group. If you are interested in joining the group, please fully complete the survey, upload a clear photo of yourself and remember that the caution we use will protect you and your family as it does us and ours!
Upon joining our home school group, we ask that you become an ACTIVE PARTICIPANT*. Your comments, suggestions and ideas are not only welcomed but encouraged. We need you to participate online (in groups & discussions) and in person. YOU are important to the success of our group!
For the 2016-2017 Homes School Year we are offering two options to better accommodate family's needs and commitment levels.
Tier 1: General Member: $25 per family + T-shirts
As a general member your family will be invited to all open activities: Park Days, Game Days, Field Trips, Community Service Projects, Celebrations and Events throughout our homeschool year.

As a Learning Member your family will receive all the privileges listed above along with a year long invitation to all workshops, book discussions and personal development offerings. Each family member is required to purchase a T-shirt for group outings and events. T-shirts are $18 each.

*In joining our group you agree to being an active participant online and in person. An active participant will:
1. Change the generic photo issued upon joining to a photo of themselves.
2. Personalize their page so others in the community can 'get to know' them.
3. Make a post on your 'blog' to introduce your self and family.
4. Share with others in the community from their experiences by adding to or starting discussions in the 'forum' section of the board.
5. Check site often so that you can participate in planned events (Park Days/Games Days, Sip & Chats/Support Meetings., Monthly Field Trips, classes, etc.).
We are striving to minimize if not totally eliminate "lurkers" on this board as it defeats the purpose of the sustainable, active community we are committed to maintaining. With your help we can achieve this! Thank you!!
Also, keep in mind that we are a HOME SCHOOL SUPPORT GROUP. If your intentions are to sell us something, recruit members for some other group, or otherwise market or promote anything please reconsider before applying to join, as we value our families more than just consumers. Thank you!
