New Foundations Home Education in Cardiff meets weekly in Cathays Community Centre from 11am to 3.30pm. As Cardiff and Wales only established Home Education charity we pride ourselves on our inclusive and welcoming atmosphere. We welcome new families with children of all ages to play, learn self-defence, create art, make friends and learn new skills. We have families who use all types of elective home education and pride ourselves on being able to offer a wide range of advice and support for those who need it.

As you look around the site you will find we update the timetable every week and do our best to provide good links to a variety of educational sites as well as other groups in Wales. The group takes pride in bringing together families and children of all ages to socialise both at the group and outside.

At New Foundations Home Education in Cardiff we don't judge each other’s choices. We are home educators that accept children/families of all ages.

We have a strict no bullying policy so that children and adults can feel safe. We are open every Thursdays in term time and organise a variety of optional activities such as swimming, ice skating and park meet-ups on other days to suit members.

We encourage feedback and/or suggestions so you can let us know what you want to do here so we can work together on making it happen..
