Dubai and Northern Emirates Homeschool Association

Our Mission

We home-school for many different reasons, but our shared goal is to fan the spark, the desire to learn, that all children are born with. We seek to provide a nurturing and loving environment to facilitate that learning. Toward this end we strive to be open-minded, tolerant, and tactful. We aim to be aware of and responsive to the needs of others in our group. Our desire is to provide a source of support, inspiration, and friendship for members of all homeschooling families in the area.

We are not a school and we do not provide tutoring services or teach children other than our own (on a regular basis). Our association does not condone nor encourage the violation of local laws in the pursuit of homeschooling.

Membership requirements

Any homeschooling family in the region can become a member. You are welcome to meet, play, and learn with some of our member families. If you would like to attend one of our weekly activities please email us at and we’ll inform you of the next gathering.

If you decide you would like to join our group, we will email a membership form to you and add you to our discussion group.

We are an inclusive group. There is no charge for joining. The only requisite is commitment to DUNEHA in an active form. If you have any special skills, expertise or ideas for the group, let us know. We also regularly need people to assist with some of the administrative jobs that keep the organization running smoothly. Please inform us if you are willing to participate in this aspect of the group.

Unfortunately, if you are only considering homeschooling, we cannot grant you membership.  Please take the time to read through this website as it has some useful ideas and tips, and if you still have questions feel free to post your questions below or email us, and we might be able to help. You may, however, join our facebook group: Search “Dubai and Northern Emirates Homeschool Association” and ask to join the group.

    I am homeschooling my 5 year old son in New York (USA). It appears that my husband will soon get employment in Dubai. The employer is trying to figure out how to pay for education. They said they usually at the school directly and need an invoice. Please advise.
    Also, do you have activities for the children and co/ops where parents teach some classes to other children. Thank you.

    Mona- You should get in touch with the KHDA. Its our understanding that for Emirati families, there are certain requirements that you must meet if you want to home-school.

Thanks for your contribution to the conversation. Please note, solicitations for anything other than educational material or opportunities will generally not be approved.
