How do I find out if a CM style co op is available in a certain area? We are hoping to be moved out of state by the time school starts in the fall. I want to know if there is a co op where we are planning to move to, or if there is one in my current area incase the move takes longer than expected.
Are you on any local support group e-mail lists or yahoogroups? I have no clue about facebook, as I’m not on it. But, I’d say it might work to send a “shout out” on one of those type forums and wait for responses. Get on groups in your future home town, too, in order to start searching.
I need to go back through this forum to find CM co-op ideas. I’d like to start one myself. I’ve learned that if it isn’t available, I have to be willing to start it and open it to others, or it isn’t available for me either.
Are you in Texas, or moving to this great state?
I am currently living in Colorado and moving to California.missceegeeParticipant
Hi there. Check to see if California has a state homeschool network. In Florida, we have FPEA which lists out some of the groups in the state. Then check to see in there is a more local network. In Jacksonville, we have HERI that lists most groups in Jax and the surrounding areas. I don’t use Facebook, but that’s a possibility, too. Search for CM book clubs, too as that might point you in the right direction. Eclectic co-ops may have families willing to branch out give the right leadership, too.
I know that I’ve read about a nature study group somewhere in CA. If I find that link, I’ll post it.
I started one 3 years ago here in Jacksonville and it’s been a tremendous blessing to me and the families involved.
I’m in Pasadena, CA. Where are you moving?
Christie mentioned the nature study group – they meet in Orange County I believe. I’ve never been to their meetings; just far enough away to be inconvenient.
My friend and I are starting up a little nature study group; hoping that will lead to more CM type conversations and support.
As of now, I haven’t found a CM-style co-op near me.
I just revived an old thread about Charlotte Mason in Orange County, CA, but I’m curious whether anything happened with Pasadena? I’d be willing to travel that distance if needed. In fact, my oldest daughter (the one in my avatar) lives in Pasadena.SChristensenParticipant
Hello friends! MY name is Sarah and I live in the Pasadena area. We are new to homeschooling. Anyone in a coop already in Pasadena?
Thanks so much!
This is an old thread so I’m not sure how much traction it will get, but have you heard of Wild & Free? There are groups popping up all over the country and I believe they’re called Wild Explorers Club. It’s for CM, unschooling, etc. homeschool families. They had a huge conference in Long Beach this past May.
There is a FB page called “Wild & Free Southern California” that might point you in the right direction as well.LindsayParticipant
I did some research and Wild & Free and The Wild Explorer’s Club are two different groups. Both are very CM-esque, though.JanParticipant
I am from the Pasadena area. I have been looking for a Charlotte Mason co-op. Any suggestions?AmandaRParticipant
I’m new to this forum. I’m located about an hour north of the Twin Cities, MN and I’m hoping to find a CM community! I have two young girls, but I’m hoping to establish some resources and would be thrilled to learn of a CM co op within reasonable distance from us! I saw a thread a couple years ago of some ladies in the twin cities and even Blaine and I’m hoping to find you! Please let me know, anything will be helpful!
I am also starting a coop here in Charlottesville, Virginia. I can be reached at thefeastschool at gmail dot com.Morgan1Participant
I’m in Kings Mountain, NC. I was looking for a CM co-op here. They have some in charlotte but that’s an hour or more away. Any NC local ladies on here?
