I'm HSing a first-grader and (in theory!) a preschooler, and I host a weekly playgroup at our house in central NJ (in one of the Brunswicks).

The kids range from 4ish to 7ish, with a toddler sibling or two thrown in We're a pretty AP/crunchy group (raw milk, Sigg bottles, some vax, some non-vax, healthy snacks, positive/gentle discipline, etc.) and run the range of schooling influences (we HS classically, one mom is an unschooler, one is Waldorf-minded, the rest are eclectic--we're all relatively relaxed). We are pretty much a secular bunch but are inclusive. We've been trying to switch back to a few park days but haven't had much luck, between travel and this crazy weather! We also welcome those who are seriously considering or getting ready to start HSing, so feel free to come and ask questions

We meet on Tuesdays at 1:00 p.m. (or thereabouts). If you think you'd like to drop by or have questions, PM me and I'll give you rest of the info. I'd love to meet a few more MDC mamas!

I think this group's been going on a while--no? In fact, I'm pretty sure I know at least one family that goes. We've had a class at Morris Museum (I'm between there and you) Tuesdays at 1:15pm since Sept.

Hope you'll continue... would love to attend with my 5yo. And we'll be at Terhune's every other Tuesday at 11am for Read-n-Pick starting in late June--so it wouldn't be far.

I'd also love to know if the group is still active! Possibly moving to the area this fall; will know more within a month or so.

Sorry, I'm just seeing these. No, the playgroup folded a few years ago, but we're all still friends and hang out on a regular basis. Most of us belong to a homeschooling enrichment co-op that one of the members founded. If you're homeschooling and want to PM me, I can try to hook you up with some local resources!
