Welcome to NICHE - North Irving Christian Home Educators. We hope you can take a few minutes to browse our site and see if we are the home school group you are looking for.
Our primary connector is our Christian faith. Although we don't all church together, or live in the same city, we serve the same God and we seek to glorify His name both individually and as a group.
We make a point of praying for each other and keeping in touch through a weekly email newsletter and reaching out to member families who need meals, childcare or transportation. Life happens! A car wreck, a move, a new baby or an illness can often create a short-term burden for a family. We can't make the burden go away, but we can help lighten the load.
We also share the common desire to train up our kids, and that's not always an easy job! The NICHE Board works diligently to come alongside our member families by planning great activities and field trips, plus educational and engaging monthly meetings for the parents. We reach out to "new" schoolers to help them navigate those first few turbulent years of home education, as well as to the "seasoned" families that have schooled at home for years.
As a member once said, “The days can be long, but the years are short!”
We know that we are blessed to be able to teach our kids at home. If you feel like NICHE is a good fit for you and your family, we would be delighted to have you join us in the adventure!
Train up a child in the way he should go;
and when he is old, he will not depart from it.
