Besides education, some children will be social magnets and the lack of a social peer group will make them hate and resent the lifestyle. They also miss out on most of the team building opportunities like sports, music, performing arts, etc. What people don't always consider is how this shapes them as future adults to deny them these types of opportunities and at 3 years old I doubt you've yet to know which children are which temperament.
There's also things like health care to consider because as adults were are pretty self-sufficient but children aren't equipped to shorthand their health concerns for an unfamiliar physician which is why a regular pediatrician is so important for a young child.
I know these aren't thoughts directly relating to the skoolie life but I think they're worth considering before you embark on this journey.
At first we are planning on easing into it slow, no long term plans just yet. First a multi week trip, then a month, would love to do 3 - 6 months, possibly a year. We will see how life goes. Currently have very good insurance and lapsing coverage is not a concern. This isn't something we have taken lightly or are just jumping into. This has been years of thought going into anything like this. As for child development experiencing the world, even just in our own country/ continent can give them memories and life lessons that they may not get otherwise. Like I said much thought, and no hard plans. Kids are first and foremost, at this point I would love to take as much time to be with the kids as possible, this is a conduit to family adventures. As kids change, life changes, we change.
