About Us

Hillside-and-4-kids_webSo what is five otherwise? Well, we are a bigger than average family, with five children aged 8months to 15 years, and a stay at home mum. We also home educate, which means we’ve got the children at home all the time and are responsible for their education directly instead of by sending them to school. So we are quite a busy and noisy household. If you want to find out more about our home education philosophy check out the “School Room” page. We also use this page to get into our current educational activities and (hopefully) successes!

Because we’re a large family, being clever in the kitchen is important, and we will let you know how we get on organising healthy meals in the five otherwise kitchen.
Our five otherwise garden page is to let you know how we are getting on trying to grow food in our postage stamp sized semi-detached garden. As with all our activities, educating the family is something we try to have built in.
Everyone in the five otherwise family is an individual, so we have to have space for everyone to share their own hobbies, likes and dislikes.
