Playdate for homeschooled kids

Hi all,

Our family moved to Mahe from RSA about three weeks ago. I am homeschooling my two little ones (3 and 5 years old) but they are missing their friends. Is there any homeschooling groups on the island? Or any mom keen to meet up once a week for the kids to play and to help this mommy to keep her sanity.My kids are very Afrikaans but knows basic English. Good opportunity for them to start learning more English and even some French?

Homeschooling is not really practised in Seychelles. But if you want your kids to meet other kids a great way to do this would be to enroll them in activities such as swimming (at the Roche Caiman national swimming pool), dance or music. Lots of kids both citizens and residents meet there and they have a lot of fun together! You will also get to meet parents and it's a great way to start. My friend also has young kids that age, send me a private message if you would like to reach out to her. We are locals by the way.

Hi,  we are in the process of moving to the Seychelles and I was also wondering about homeschooling.  My 9yr old is in a home school set up (about 60 kids ).  They are doing the Abeka Christian Homeschooling System.  What are you using with your little ones and did you have to apply to do homeschooling with them 💐

We are also a homeschooling family and we live on Fregate island. I'm looking for activities that our girls (5 and 7 years) could do every Monday. We only have our boat available on Mondays, it arrives on Mahe at 7:30am and then it leaves at 4 pm. I'm looking for activities that the girls could join privately (while other children are at school) or in group for them to meet other children. Do you have any suggestion?

Hello, we are in the same situation, could you suggest the contacts? Thank you

Hi there

I apologise to not have any luck on a playdate for your girls...I happened to see your post and I'm investigating moving to the Seychelles!

I am in RSA, I'd love to hear about your experiences now that you are there and what type of industry you are in? My mind slaans toe as to how I would ever imagine going about this.

Regards
Ingrid

Hey there! It's been some time since you have posted, but I wanted to reach out. Me and my family are Christians and we are looking into relocating to Seychelles at the Lord leads us to do so. We currently have a three year old daughter. Before Covid hit we were about to relocate to Seychelles, where I was going to be a school counselor on Mahe. I am a licensed mental health counselor for a living. We are currently praying that God willing there will somehow be a group of children who learn multiple languages and live in Seychelles that is Christian-based and that the families can have a close community that is Christ centered and filled with love. Our daughter currently goes to the foreign language immersion school where she learns Spanish, Mandarin and French. We speak fluent English and she reads at about a 10-year-old level. I'm reaching out in the event that this would interest you and that you can join me in prayerfully asking God and brainstorming ways to have children raised in the beautiful Seychelles anyway that is Christ filled with other languages. If you have any suggestions on this please let me know or feel free to reach out for any other reason :-) Please contact me via email at *** God bless you and your family!

Hi - are you still on Mahe? Still looking? I'm interested

Hi there - we are Christian - have 2 kids 1 & 5 years old. We are currently homeschooling. Would love to meet up if you do move here.

Hi, we are still on Mahe. I will love to be in contact with you. Please send me a WhatsApp on ***

My children are currently 6 and 8. I follow a South African Christian based curriculum. I am a struggling reader so this year we focused mainly on Afrikaans. However, we are fully bilingual (English).

Looking forward hearing from you.

If anyone wants to get together let me know. Homeschooling is not common here so the few homeschoolers need to have a community, I feel, even if its just for casual support or kids making some new friends.  Holla at me mamas if you are interested to meet. Cheers

Hi we meet up with a few moms and kids (mostly) on Wednesday at the Anse Royal playground. However we are currently in South Africa for a holiday. I will reach out again when we are back it would be lovely to meet. @Oceanwind
