Great reasons to choose NSWLearning

We know you have a choice. Here are some reasons to chose us!


We started the online educational revolution back in 1999. Twenty years of experience means we understand online learning with young people.

High Quality

Online learning is about curriculum and tutorial support. We excel in both!


We know about home education because our senior staff actually did it - themselves - with their children!

At NSWLearning, we believe that home-based learning is the best way to educate children. Steve and Lyn Richards, our Directors, have spent over thirty years speaking widely about educating children without school. In addition, they educated their four children at home.
We are passionate about home education; we are not anti-school, we simply do not think that modern schools are the best places for children to grow. Children need more freedom and more time in order to develop the incredible gifts that they all possess – time and freedom that schools all too easily take away from them. In addition, we think parents are important people in shaping the lives of children and young people.
We see our role as one of enabling, empowering and facilitating families. Parents and young people should be the ones making decisions but we will assist you and support you, all the way, in order to help you make the best decisions.
At NSW, we do not see home-based learning as a second-best – it is as simple as that!
