The National Council of Home Educators New Zealand (NCHENZ) was set up as an incorporated society in 1998 to encourage, promote, inform and advance home education in NZ at a national level. We are the only national home education body in NZ, and we have no affiliation to any political or religious group. NCHENZ is run by an elected Executive Committee who are all home educating their own children and who volunteer their time for the benefit of NCHENZ.
We have a Constitution which determines how NCHENZ operates and we provide regular updates to members on our activities.
Membership is free for individuals/families – join here. We have two main avenues for communicating with members – our NCHENZ Forum and Facebook. You can join one or both of these groups once your membership application is received and approved.
