As an eclectic, Charlotte Mason-inspired homeschooler, being outdoors has become a part of who we are and what we love. On my journey as a mother and educator to my children, I knew I wanted them to grow up appreciating and respecting our earth. Being outside exploring has allowed us to form a bond with our Creator and appreciate his gifts to us as we embark on our homeschool journey.
After years of prayer, my motivation grew enough to create Central Florida Explorers in 2017 to serve my local homeschool community. After a successful first year, our group has expanded to a second group, totalling 22 families (and over 50 kids!). Educating the next generation of environmentally minded children is of most importance to our group and we focus not only on nature itself, but also giving back by doing park clean-up days and holiday volunteer work.
CFE is a private group serving the central Florida homeschool community and while both groups are currently full, I would like to inspire others to spread the Word of nature in their community. Please feel free to contact me if you are interested in forming a group of your own.
