Community events and workshop series

This is a collaboration between Different Directions, The ROC and Fearless Homeschooling. Every month there will be workshops, events, gatherings and happenings designed bring entertainment, information, support, and social experiences to everyone in the family.


Registration is a three step process.  We know, it feels a bit duplicative!  But Different Directions is a cooperative community, and each class is structured independently by the instructors.  

1). Please  make an enrollment enquiry above with the instructor for each class you want to take.  We make it easy - there is an inquiry button next to each class to send a direct inquiry to the instructor.  The instructor will send you an email with details regarding the class and how to pay.

2). All children taking classes must also  be registered with Different Directions. Once you have been confirmed for a class by the instructor, you can register with us by  clicking on the registration link here and filling out the online form.  

3). Please pay the registration fee, details of which are on the registration page.
