Homeschoolers, unschoolers, slow-schoolers welcome here! We are families of independent learners, aged around 6 to 10 (with siblings and friends of all ages welcome). As the organizer's baby moves into the preschool years, we are also planning classes and playgroups for toddlers and young kids. So far, emphasis has been on outside and nearish to Alameda.
Please do not use this group to sell products or services. This is a privately funded group and not a good place for advertising or fishing of any kind.
We welcome people of all lifestyles, orientations, faiths, and beliefs. Any events planned here shall be secular and not exclusive to anyone based on belief, orientation, or lifestyle. Let's build community and have fun!
Some of us are here to form a learning co.op of kids in the early elementary range. Others just want to meet up informally to play in the woods, explore at the beach, visit museums and classes, and get together to play, make, and learn. Traditionally schooled friends are welcome to join in on events too, if they like.
To become a member you'll be asked to submit a photo and some information about your self and your family. We will want to meet you (if we haven't already) and then you'll be granted access to to site. This is to ensure that no freakazoids or solicitors have access to our information, and that no one but other lovely homeschooling/unschooling families will know when and where we are going to be with our kids. Important, right?
The aim of this group is to provide an active, fun, and inclusive complement to the other very excellent homeschooling/ unschooling meetups in the area, with an emphasis on activities closer to Alameda/Oakland, and with elementary-aged kids and their families specifically in mind.
