Charlotte Mason 101

This FREE event is hosted by TVCMC (see separate CMIC entry) from 10 am - 3 pm, for parents who are:
~ considering homeschooling & looking for a starting point
~ interested in learning more about CM's Educational Philosophy & Practices
~ new to using CM at home & want inspiration and tips from moms who have done this "in-real-life"
Please join us for an exciting Saturday to learn all about Charlotte Mason's timeless educational philosophy, as well as demonstrate her method through multiple ***immersion lessons*** (see below). We're also arranging a Q&A panel with moms who have been implementing CM for years, so bring those narration and math questions!
We'll learn about who Miss Mason is, why we listen to her advice about home education, and yes, even parenting.
We'll also hear about where she thinks God fits into education, and what THREE instruments a teacher can use with her students. As CM says, "All education is self-education," so we'll share multiple resources with you to further your own self-education, including books, podcasts, websites, etc. Bring your note-taking materials!!

Treasure Valley Charlotte Mason Community (TVCMC)

The Treasure Valley Charlotte Mason Community is a private Facebook group for anyone who is currently using CM educational philosophy in their homeschool AND for those who are just beginning, and even just curious about the Charlotte Mason Method. We accept all faiths and backgrounds, you don't have to be a member of any faith, or a specific church, to join and participate <3 As a heads up, leadership will openly speak about their Christian faith and other members may as well, but *ALL* are welcome! Our events run March - November, and we take a Sabbath break December - February, to give our families time to slow down and our TVCMC Committee time to plan the upcoming year. There are monthly: 1st Friday Nature Journaling, 2nd Tuesday Park Days, 3rd Wednesday Coffee & Conversations (parents only - both philosophical and practical CM conversations!), and we aim for monthly Field Trips (typically on the 3rd or 4th Friday, but that's subject to be flexible as it depends on the venue). We also host an annual CM 101 Event (please see separate CMIC entry) for interested or new to CM homeschoolers. Local CM co-op(s), nature groups, hiking groups, and other groups of interest are encouraged to post and set up events when they have Open Houses / Info Nights. Registrations for the upcoming school year typically occur during April / May, prior to a new school year starting, so please look for those in the spring! Our Facebook page is a great place to connect with local CM families and get plugged in. We also have multiple CM book clubs reading through her volumes, and we always support and encourage parents to join, or start one. If you need assistance with that, please post a question, or send a pm to an admin. If you'd like more information, even if you're not on social media, please email us at
