Hello mamas,<br><br>
We're a Canadian family currently in SC on a temporary relocation, and have just been told we're being sent to Little Rock in mid-June. Can anyone recommend resources in the North Little Rock area? We're homeschoolers of early elementary aged kids. We're also looking for areas to live in, where to avoid... we need a rental, house preferred. Any help you can offer would be greatly appreciated!<br><br>
Thank you!

There are many resources for you in Little Rock. Check out the <a href="http://www.examiner.com/x-10007-Little-Rock-Homeschooling-Examiner" target="_blank">Little Rock Homeschooling Examiners</a> page for information about homeschooling in Little Rock.<br><br>
North Little Rock is better than Little Rock as far as neighborhoods go. There is a lot to do in the area. Be sure to check out local 4H clubs.<br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

In North Little Rock, stay away from houses on streets with numbers. Pike St. is also no good. Lettered streets tend to be in Park Hill, which is a good, historic area. The Lakewood area is also good. What is your budget for a rental?

Our budget is about $1200-1500/mo, I'd say. I've also heard West Little Rock is a good area? Or have I been led astray, lol? At any rate my husband's been looking at an apartment complex near Chenal Pkwy and Cantrell Rd area.... Fingers crossed!<br><br>
Also, thanks for the replies - I appreciate them very much! 4H clubs will be a new thing for us, but I'm sure my boys would love it!

West LR is generally good. The Hillcrest and/or Heights areas are where I'd live if I had a budget that high (historic homes, kind of hippy area).<br><br>
You can easily find a rental in Park Hill or Lakewood in NLR with that budget. Maumelle tends to be good as well.<br><br>
Chenal is good. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">
