Islamic Homeschool- A List of 40+ Co-ops and Support Groups

One of the things that makes homeschooling a lot easier is having the help and support of family and community. A strong support team can help you get through difficult patches, provide encouragement, and give invaluable advice. Co-ops and playgroups provide opportunities to socialize for both parents and students. Children get to learn and play with their peers. Parents get a chance to hang out with other adults, bounce ideas off each other, share triumphs and challenges, and share new found resources and curriculum. If you feel like you are all alone on your journey, I encourage you to venture out and try to find like minded homeshoolers in your area. If you can’t find any Islamic homeschool groups, you may want to join a secular, non-religious group, that is “Muslim friendly”. Below is a comprehensive list of 40+ Islamic co-ops and online support groups.

Co-ops

  1. As salaamu alaykum<

    Very nice compilation! I have attempted a co-op before but it didn't really take off. One because some families put their children back into public school, and two the lack of participation.

  2. hey Jamila, this is a great list of resources. Thanks a lot for sharing, it really is important to join a community. It helps with socialization and support for both the child and parent.

  3. Masjid Saleeh Fawzaan Homeschool Co-op Centre is a place for the Homeschooler Muslimaah and her children, to nurture and learn with other Home School Educator Muslimaats and children. InshaaAllah. Ibn Al Qayyim ( May Allah have mercy on him) said ” How many people have caused misery to their own children,the apples of their eyes, in this world and in the Hereafter, by neglecting them, not disciplining them, encouraging them to follow their whims and desires, thinking that they were honouring them when they were in fact humiliating them, that they were being merciful to them when in fact they were wringing them. They have not benefited from having a child, and they have made the child lose his share in this world and in the Hereafter. If you think about the corruption of children you will see that in most cases it is because of the parents”
    With the Will of Allah the Most High, our mission is to provide an Islamic based educational environment, and resources in accordance to the Qur’an and Sunnah as understood, explained and exemplified by our pious predecessors from the Sahabahs, Tabi’een, and Tab’tabi’een, radhi Allaahu anhum ajma’een, and those who followed in their footsteps, inshaa Allah. We want to make clear that all that we do would derive from this from the Islamic, secular and physical education of our children to how the co-op would be ran, to the best of our abilities, in addition, our holistic home schooling co-op also enables the parent to be part of their child learning development; whilst our teaching method where each mother teaches at least one subject, ensuring that the child and mother does not loss their learning and teaching bond they have when they are homeschooling by themselves. InshaaAllah
