      Hi, Rheza. I’m assuming your daughter is at elementary-school age? For first-time homeschoolers, I strongly recommend enrolling the child in a DepEd-accredited homeschool provider. A DepEd accredited school gives curriculum support, as well as guidance for teaching your child at home and opportunities for connecting with other homeschoolers in organized activities. Most importantly, when the time comes for your child to join a regular school or go to college, she will need to have a Form 137 or Form 138 (whichever the case may be) and/or a Transcript of Grades/Records, which only a DepEd accredited homeschool provider can give. Of course, you can still choose to do independent homeschooling and have your daughter take the Philippine Educational Placement Test or Philippine Validating Exam from the DepEd. You will also need to produce an educational portfolio consisting of worksheets, notebooks, tests, and projects as proof that you homeschooled your daughter. For free curriculum guides and learners’ materials/modules, visit the DepEd’s Learning Resources Portal.
