Is it legal to homeschool in Kuwait?
So far there’s no written law regarding homeschooling in Kuwait.
Homeschooling is not mentioned in the Education in Kuwait Wikipedia info, and Kuwait is also not mentioned in this blog post, Which countries have banned homeschooling at http://www.examiner.com/article/which-countries-have-banned-homeschooling.
It’s really up to your family’s personal choice. We’re expatriates in Kuwait and we feel that homeschooling our children is the best choice for our children’s education.
Are you an expatriate in Kuwait?
Yes, we’re Filipino homeschoolers in Kuwait.
What about the socialization aspect of your homeschooled children?
In the past, our kids attended a playgroup cum preschool at least thrice a week, 2 hours per session.
We have movieducation session in cinemas. We have a vast playground at the park. Socialization is not actually a problem among homeschooled kids. Our kids are sociable and they get along pretty well with others, young and old alike.
Is there a Filipino Homeschooling Group in Kuwait?

How many hours do you devote to homeschool your child?
If you have 3 hours a day, 5x a week, you and your child will be doing well. Just make sure that you’re not making it too hard for your child. Watch for the cues if your child is grumpy, unable to learn, etc. It’s best if you can adjust your schedule according to what your child needs, his/her age, and learning style.
Can we meetup so that you can orient us on how to start homeschooling?
Yes. Book an appointment at firstname.lastname@example.org or at email@example.com.
