CHESCA Nurture Groups
Description: Although our group has historically been a co-op oriented group, currently most member families do not meet with one another but maintain a connection to CHESCA for the flow of information that comes through e-mails, meetings and the newsletter. A good portion of our membership consists of CHESCA homeschool veterans; folks who have graduated at least one home school student. Many of the veterans have, in the past, put in volunteer time in leadership within CHESCA central or currently serve CHESCA in that capacity. Other members are very active homeschoolers within their region but live further away than is practical for participation in our county. We continue to exist as a group to allow families to stay within earshot of what is happening while minimizing the need to participate in group activities. Please send any comments or questions to: Mark & Diane Stevenson at firstname.lastname@example.org
Canton / North Canton
Description: The North Canton Nurture Group welcomed the Canton Nurture Group in September, 2007, and they are now one group. North Canton has grown exponentially since its inception in 1997. For the past few years, our membership has reached 60+ families, and we strive to meet the needs of Christian Home Educators in Northern Stark County. Many of our members live in North Canton, Uniontown, Hartville, Plain Township, Jackson Township and Canton. Students in their last year of high school, newborns, and everyone in-between are represented. Activities and field trips are planned to reflect the interests of the group and tend to cover all age groups. We schedule two field trips/activities per month. Our popular Mom's Night Out is also held once a month, and Family Night Activities occur every two months as well. A Kickoff Picnic is scheduled late every summer and the year concludes with our spring banquet. Our nurture group newsletters are published five times throughout the year, with most members receiving them by e-mail PDF attachments. Our nurture group newsletter can also be found on the CHESCA website in the Members Only section, where the Nurture Groups are listed.
