Starting a Group in Charleston, WV

My family recently moved to Charleston, WV and as far as I can tell there isn’t a local CM group. I’d like to start a gathering for children and their families.

I envision beginning with a fortnightly nature study/walk to let our children delight in the wonder and beauty of creation. I’d also like to offer a monthly meet up for mums to read through Charlotte’s volumes or other related material.

If you are interested in joining, please sing out!

Hoping to Start a Group in Charleston, WV

My family has recently moved to Charleston, WV and as far as I can tell there are no CM groups nearby, so I would like to start one!

I envision this group beginning with a fortnightly (every other week) nature study/walk for our children to delight in the wonder of creation and enjoy one another’s company. I would also like to offer a monthly meet up for mums to read and discuss Charlotte’s volumes or other related content. I would be happy to discuss expanding from that starting point!

If you are interested, please sing out!

We are a new CM group in Maryville, TN. We are looking to start a CM book reading meeting, playdates, and possibly a co-op.

San Antonio, TX

Charlotte Masonry Park Day

The purpose of the Charlotte Masonry park days is to build a welcoming community that serves San Antonio Area Charlotte Mason families. This is for families striving to provide a Charlotte Mason inspired education for their children. To best serve our diverse local Charlotte Mason community, the subjects offered are intentionally neutral with regards to faith. This is for families with children age 6-12 (Form I and Form II). Older children still learning or comfortable doing Form II work are welcome. Younger siblings are welcome at the park while older siblings are in lessons. The classes we will cover: Swedish Drill; Folk Song; Artist Study, Composer Study; Poetry; Folk Dance; Nature Walk, and optional Shakespeare

The group meets Wednesday mornings at parks around the city.
