About Charlotte Mason Beehive
Charlotte Mason Beehive is a small family business based in Leicestershire, England. We are named for the Junior School House of Fairfield, the Practicing School of the Charlotte Mason College in Ambleside, which was known simply as ‘The Beehive’ and lay within the grounds of the college. This is where pupils of the Junior School (ages 7-11) took their lessons.
Founded upon the methodology of Victorian educator Charlotte Mason, we provide a comprehensive and straight-forward resource for home educating parents, who are following this philosophy of education in their homes. New content, such as living books, exclusive curricula, free resources, lesson plans, and digital downloads are released on a regular basis, keeping things fresh and up to date.
Unless otherwise stated the information shared on these pages is based upon the principles and practices of Charlotte Mason; and the workings of the Parents’ National Educational Union, the Parents’ Union School (P.U.S.), the Practicing School, and the Charlotte Mason College.
About the Founder
Hi, I’m Rachel, follower of Christ, wife to one, mother of two, and the founder of Charlotte Mason Beehive. I like drinking tea, collecting vintage books, and going for longs walks with my family through the endless fields and countryside surrounding our home.
I’m so thrilled to be a part of this wonderful journey, alongside all of you, united in our great admiration and respect for Charlotte Mason and her invaluable contributions to the world of education.
We live in Middle England, at the very heart of our ‘green and pleasant land’, surrounded by hills and vales, woods and streams, and where we are so blessed to be able to spend so many of our waking hours in the outdoors, exploring fields, disused railway lines and quarries, wild woodlands, rivers, and lakes.
We have an Instagram account where we share all the ins and outs of our own little schoolhouse so please check us out at charlottemasonschoolhouse.
We can’t wait to meet you!
