This is a Charlotte Mason support group for Home Educating Hoosiers! The goal is to have a community that collectively works towards sharing all the local resources Indiana has to offer relevant to the CM way of homeschooling, such as:
🌿 Nature Studies
🌿 Educational Events, Outings, & Field Trips
🌿 CM-Inspired Gatherings
🌿 Homeschool Conferences
🌿 Literature-based Learning Opportunities
🌿 Mother Culture
🌿 Book Clubs
🌿 Book Sales or Swaps
We ask members to join us in earnestly seeking to learn and pursue CM's educational model and foster this community. Miss Mason has offered us such a sacred way of learning, and as parents we're gifted the opportunity to help each other retain this way of living. Some ways we expect members to do so include:
🌿 Contribute by sharing resources such as those mentioned above
🌿 Actively pursue and learn the CM methods
🌿 Strive to build real, in-person relationships with other local families
🌿 Offer encouragement and support as needed
These are the components that make a location-based Facebook group worthwhile! This a volunteer run group. We are all home educators–be gracious to the collective when life allows by volunteering your time and efforts to the group. If you would like to organize an outing, you are welcome to do so long as it is in the spirit of Miss Mason's teachings.
We are a Facebook group for parents in New Jersey, New York, and Connecticut who have only just heard about Charlotte Mason or have been using her methods for years. We love Charlotte Mason and the precious truths she left behind for our families! We would love for you to join our group if you’re looking for information about the Charlotte Mason method of education, for support in learning to apply this method in your home, and/or to connect with other families in the tristate area who use this wonderful method of life and learning,
Slowly, yet surely, Charlotte Mason families are springing up in the NJ/NY/CT area and this Facebook group is the result of our desire to connect Charlotte Mason families in our areas. We want you to know you are not alone! Our hope is that through this group, you will find other Charlotte Mason families in your area, as well as support and resources to bless your home and homeschool.
