Volume 1


Home Education

In depth study and discussion on the foundations of education as an "atmosphere," "discipline," and "life."

Volume 1

Introduction to this volume

Volume 1, Home Education, takes us through the important foundations of education as "an atmosphere, a discipline, and a life," especially focusing on how to train and educate younger children. Charlotte Mason lays out a clear picture of the years before formal schooling and the first few years of lessons as "a quiet growing time" with practical suggestions on how to cultivate this lifestyle. Join Nancy Buterbaugh, an veteran Mason educator, and a small community of other parents and teachers for discussion, accountability, and encouragement. Part 1 of this study begins in February. Jump in and learn with us!
