Hoping to find some homeschool / unschool mommas of 'preschool' age! My friend and I are putting together an early learning cooperative in the Southern Monmouth / Northern Ocean area and am hoping to find other moms and children age 0-6 (give or take) for ours to play / learn with. At this point we are meeting weekly for play dates at various parks & beaches but we want to expand to include parent-lead 'classes' (i.e: music, gardening, crafts, etc.). 


 
We have reached out to the homeschool community but are finding many of the kids are much older....we are hoping to find younger kids who will also not be attending preschool. 
 
We welcome all ideas!

I've got 4 from ages 1-8...  we're in Ocean, but close to the Monmouth border (near Great Adventure). 

 

I don't check often so I'll probably be late to the party, but I'm definitely interested...

 

:)

YAY! Happy to see we are not alone :-) My little guy is 2.5 (baby due in October) and my friend's are 2.5 and 4.5 - we are both in Point Pleasant. Let's plan on meeting up :-)

 

I'm going to suggest Tuesday June 18 at 9:30 (ish!) at Brielle Park in Brielle. The play structure is shaded and there's lots of room for the kids to roam and explore. If there is a day / time / place that works better let me know and we'll find a place / day when everyone can make it!
