“Education is an Atmosphere, a Discipline, a Life.”

Charlotte Mason, PNEU Motto


Charlotte Mason Redding is a local community organized to equip, encourage and support those who are actively pursuing or desirous of implementing Charlotte Mason’s philosophy in their homes. We offer parental training, group gatherings & special events, group classes and mother culture opportunities.


Our aim is to follow Miss Mason’s Philosophy of Education ourselves, and to assist those who want to do the same. To that end, we aim to serve our members through these primary goals:


Provide parent educators with the training and resources they need to successfully implement the Charlotte Mason method in their homes. We regularly host trainings for those who are interested in the Charlotte Mason method.


Create community for both parents and children through large group nature gatherings and special events. We also encourage members to form small groups that meet more often!


Establish group classes parents can be confident in because the method of instruction mirrors the method parents and students are using at home!


Encourage mothers to pursue their own education and interests to help avoid burnout and to model to their children that, “Education is a Life!”


CMRedding is pleased to welcome John Muir Laws as the keynote speaker at our annual Redeeming Education Conference, April 29, 2023 in Redding, CA.   

John Muir Laws is a dynamic speaker who loves to share his passion for nature study! Join us for a full day of wonder as we learn about the power of the brain to hone our skills of observation, curiosity, creativity & fun exploring God’s wondrous mysteries to behold in creation! Let’s Learn to See!

John (Jack) Muir Laws is a scientist, educator, and author, who helps people forge a deeper and more personal connection with nature through keeping illustrated nature journals and understanding science. His work intersects science, art, and mindfulness. Trained as a wildlife biologist and an associate of the California Academy of Sciences, he observes the world with rigorous attention. He looks for mysteries, plays with ideas, and seeks connections in all he sees. Attention, observation, curiosity, and creative thinking are not gifts, but skills that grow with training and deliberate practice. As an educator and author, Jack teaches techniques and supports routines that develop these skills to make them a part of everyday life.
