Abstract
The reason underlying homeschoolers decide on homeschooling education is because of the emergence of the desire to provide education that supports children’s competence in their field. In addition, due to factors distrust of formal schooling and the provision of religious education. Homeschooling is a positive alternative education to develop children’s potential. Through homeschooling, children and homeschoolers together communicate learning that supports children’s talents and interests. The selected curriculum adjusts the reference of education in Indonesia, but is managed flexibly based on children’s autonomy. Homeschooling children learn the teaching materials required for diploma examinations that are officially recognized by the government and can be used to continue to higher education. Homeschooling children also have more opportunities to explore and develop potential based on intelligence and learning styles that are unique to each child. The flexibility of time and material decided to be studied by children contributes to the formation of independence and attitude of responsibility of children towards their learning tasks. Educational aspects include cognitive, affective, and psychomotor domains, so that the homeschool education model provides satisfaction for homeschoolers and homeschooling children because it provides tangible experiences that benefit children’s life skills.
