Kitchener-Waterloo Christian Home Educators’ Association

Please note that while you are free to choose any seminar you wish to attend, due to fire regulations, we are not allowed to have more people in a room than the number of chairs that have been provided.  

If you find that a seminar has no empty chairs when you arrive, please find another seminar that you could attend.  All sessions are first come, first served.  Some popular seminars may fill very quickly.  


Seminars will be approximately 1 hour long, with an additional 15 minutes allotted for questions and answers. You are not required to register for seminars ahead of time.

Seminar topics will include choosing curriculum; teaching specific subjects; practical tips for success; learning disabilities and more.

Seminars sessions will not be recorded.

Cell Phones  

We recognize that your cell phone is an important way for those caring for your children to get hold of you in an emergency. For this reason, we will not be requesting that you shut your phone off. However, please make sure that your phone is turned to vibrate, so that it will not disturb others. If you should happen to get a call during a seminar, please exit the seminar to take the call.  Also, please refrain from making calls during a seminar session.  The speaker of the session may ask you to leave if the phone is causing a disruption to others.

Nursing Infants

Please remove crying, fussy or noisy infants from seminar rooms immediately.
