Welcome to HEED

"Home Educators for Excellence in Des Moines"


If you have questions about homeschooling in Iowa or in general, we invite you to browse the "New to Homeschooling?" link on the navigation bar to the left.


If you have further questions about HEED specifically and are interested in joining our support group, you may contact us at heediamembership@gmail.com for information about our group and assistance in becoming a member.


We are a Christian home school support group in the Central Iowa area. Our meetings are on the first Monday of each month from September thru May and are open only to HEED members. However we have new member orientations at 6:30 at most meetings, with the meeting itself getting underway at 7:00 p.m. In addition to the meetings, our members enjoy many benefits, including field trips, sports, play days, and other educational activities. 

This web site provides secure and confidential access for our members. You need to attend an orientation to become a member of HEED then you can access our groups benefits. Orientations are held at most of our monthly meetings.

Only take heed to thyself, and keep thy soul diligently, lest thou forget the things which thine eyes have seen, and lest they depart from thy heart all the days of thy life: but teach them thy sons, and thy son's sons; specially the day that thou stoodest before the LORD thy God in Horeb, when the LORD said unto me, Gather me the people together, and I will make them hear my words, that they may learn to fear me all the days that they shall live upon the earth, and that they may teach their children. Deuteronomy 4:9-10
