(Children Involved in a Respectful Co-operative Learning Environment)
CIRCLE is an all-inclusive learning cooperative (co-op) open to all families. All ages are welcome, from infants through adults.
CIRCLE is not just for homeschooling families.
Any family looking for a respectful, family learning environment is welcome to join a CIRCLE group, regardless of what educational choices they have made (homeschool, public school, private school). * Because many of the families involved do homeschool, many of the classes may be held during school hours.
CIRCLE co-ops offer quarterly classes, field trips, and other events, with every family offering at least one activity during a session in order to participate.
Rather than a one day, one location co-op, CIRCLE allows each teacher to pick the topic, time, date and location of each class s/he is offering. Teachers may offer one-day activities/field trips, or they may choose to teach recurring/multi-part classes (i.e. weekly throughout the quarter, three times total, etc.). Simple play dates or meet up classes do not count as a class. Teachers are free to specify age groups and/or size limits for their particular class(es).
