Homeschool of One is a blog that offers tips, tricks, and freebies for those who are trying to homeschool. We share our findings on what has worked well in the past four years while also pointing out any resources we think you should try!
Hi, I’m Clare. Welcome to my homeschool blog, Homeschool of One. A space where I share homeschool activities, homeschool tips, and all of the homeschool curriculums we have come across, plus free educational printables. We do a lot of online homeschooling, most of which is free so I try and share all our findings with you. Please check out our favorite homeschool resources here.
Freddie was in mainstream school until he turned 8 years old, and I opted to home educate him. So we have been homeschooling now for over 4 years.
We are from the UK and started our homeschooling there, however, three years ago we moved to South Florida, America. Of course, the climate is completely different and takes a lot of getting used to, but homeschooling hasn’t changed. Well, apart from the fact there are more homeschool families and better homeschool curriculums. However, we used a lot of these American curriculums in the UK anyway.

I’m a mom of one. Freddie, who is actually called Frederick, or Fred, or the Fredster depending on our mood, and was born in December 2009. I am also a step mom to a girl and a boy, who are 27 and 23. We also live with my husband Stu, daddy to the kids.
When Freddie was born, I was working as a Finance Director in an engineering company and planned to be a working mom. So Freddie started full-time nursery at the age of 3 months. All was going well until he turned 18 months, myself and my husband worked away a lot and we both worked in excess of 60 hours a week. As I had had no maternity leave I decided to hand in my notice in October 2011.
Freddie is a typical boy. Everything is done at a million miles an hour and he is into most sports, currently playing basketball, rugby, and swimming. But has done Judo, tennis, cricket, and soccer. This brings me on to his dad, Freddie definitely gets his sporting interests from him. He would sit for hours (if he could) and watch any and every type of sport out there, including tiddlywinks!
Surprisingly as Freddie is such an active child he absolutely loves reading, building Lego, playing cards, and in fact, can be lost in these for hours. Although he can’t do anything quietly. So he is either shouting to me, singing, humming, or even talking to his invisible friends!
