What is The Hive?

Our Community Platform: The Hive

The Hive is a place outside of busy and distracting social media platforms for us to talk about Charlotte Mason and how to best implement Alveary.

Members can connect with others in their area, share ideas, create a circle to discuss a topic, gain insight from fellow members, and enjoy the shared journey toward a relational education.

Apply Mason’s philosophy in a neuroatypical setting

Blue Orchard Bee

Mason said that in order to guide a child’s whole person, we must fully understand what it means to offend not, despise not, hinder not. Other aspects in the field of education might evolve over time, but this vocation is absolute.

The Blue Orchard Bee is the location of CMI’s online support for those living out this vocation with neuroatypical children. Consistent with the model of the PNEU, CMI will build community, support the observation of the children, navigate current research, and reflect on our vocation. We are excited to share this journey with you, as we learn how to relate to our blue orchard bees.
