Listing Type: Group
Meeting once each month on-line (with one in-person meeting per semester), our group of mother-teachers will discuss Charlotte Mason's first volume, Home Education.
Let but the heads of two or three families meet together to talk over the bringing up of their children, and the best and wisest parents will go home with new insight, renewed purpose, and warmer zeal. ("The Beginning of Things," In Memoriam)
Meeting the first Wednesday of each month beginning in September 2022.
"Let them once get touch with Nature, and a habit is formed which will be a source of delight through life. We were all meant to be naturalists, each in his degree, and it is inexcusable to live in a world so full of the marvels of plant and animal life and to care for none of these things. -Charlotte Mason, Volume 1, page 61
Avonlea Nature School is a new homeschool co-op in Monroe County, Illinois for families seeking a Christian forest school experience for their kindergarten-aged children. We will take a Charlotte Mason approach to these early years, allowing for free play, nature exploration, and gentle learning.
Ambleside School of Fredericksburg is looking for Charlotte Mason faithful who are interested in learning more about teaching in a Charlotte Mason School. Ambleside exclusively practices the philosophy and methods of Charlotte Mason in a school setting and is always looking for skilled teachers to bring up the next generation of persons in "an atmosphere, a discipline and a life."
I am interested in starting a Charlotte Mason group in Boone County Area, KY.
If you are interested, please let me know! It would involve a Mother Culture book club for Moms, nature study group meetings for the families, and possibly enrichment for our children in a once a month co-op format.
Kindly reach out if you are interested. Nature walks can start happen during Summer with the other activities resuming in the Fall. Thanks in advance!
Plantings Academy: A Community of Learning

for the display of His splendor." Isaiah 61:3
