Smile Hello, I am very new to this whole homeschooling idea. I need to know how to register when my daughter is ready to begin? She is 3 years old. Also do the public schools offer a curriculum for us to follow?

Which state are you in? What paperwork you send in and when depends a lot on where you are. As for public school curricum, that would be a charter school, and you'd still be officially enrolled in the public school system, just doing most of the teaching at home. Homeschooling is somewhat different.

This is what I found for your state:

Compulsory School Age
"a minor who becomes six years of age on or before the first of December in any school year...until the last day of session in the school year in which the minor becomes sixteen years of age" or completes high school

It was from this site:

http://www.hslda.org/laws/default.asp?State=NY

So you do not have to actually start anything until your child turns 6. You can further investigate this site to get better informed of the laws in your state. You can also contact your state board of education.

Good luck to you and your little one!

Some further information on how to get started can be found here (see the bottom of the page):
http://www.leah.org/starting.php

And a listing of homeschool groups for NY is here:
http://www.home-school.com/groups/NY.html

No, this is not a forum specifically for NY, though people will be happy to help you look up info for your state.
