Tipton Area Christian Home Educators
"Love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the door frames of your houses and on your gates."
Tipton Area Christian Home Educators was founded in 1989 for the purpose of supporting families who educate their children at home. Our goal is to enrich one another through shared group experiences within a Christian Atmosphere.
TACHE is a homeschool support group for families. We believe the responsibility for the education of children is first and foremost ours as parents. We believe that parental involvement in TACHE activities is vital and necessary.
TACHE is a forthrightly Christian organization. We are a group oriented to supporting one another. We offer enrichment activities for home school families. We are not affiliated with any denomination or church.
