York County

M.O.M York County Homeschooling Network

Ongoing 2017/2018

After moving to Maine in late 2016, I realized that homeschooling was the route my husband and I wanted to take. Not having any luck finding a homeschooling Network in York County, I figured that I wasn't the only homeschooling mom that wanted to get together with other moms and support each other through healthy, Christian learning. This group isn't limited to York County, but anyone who wants to get together weekly or monthly for play dates, active hands-on learning, and field trips in Southern Maine. Let's have fun, hang out, and teach the way God intended. Serina
