Happening at Ambleside
Ambleside hosts a number of special events throughout the school year for our students, families, and the wider community. Please note a few of our upcoming events on this page.
May 5th, 2018 ~ 6 to 9 pm
Save the date for Ambleside's annual spring fundraiser. SpringFest will be a celebration of the life of the school and will include an auction and speaker.
If you are interested in volunteering for the event, please contact Phyllis Lauber at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Ambleside Evenings are a way for parents to support one another in caring for their children, build relationships together through food and fellowship, and become a stronger school community as we learn about how to bring the transformative power of Charlotte Mason’s method into our homes.
Each Evening begins with a potluck supper at 6 pm.
Friday, April 27th: Authority vs. Freedom
June 1st & June 8th
"To become intimate with Shakespeare in this way is a great enrichment of mind and instruction of conscience. Then, by degrees, as we go on reading this world-teacher, lines of insight and beauty take possession of us, and unconsciously mould our judgments of men and things and of the great issues of life."
- Charlotte Mason
Coffee with Charlotte mason

Join Kim Roberts to explore how the "authority of children is a danger." We will be reading chapter 5 "Consequences" from Volume 5, The Formation of Character.
Childcare will be provided in the Kindergarten classroom. A small monetary donation is recommended, but not required. If you plan to take advantage of the childcare, please contact Kim. Feel free to bring snacks/ drinks for your child and note that the Kindergarten classroom is nut free.

Ambleside Internships consist of three days of training for the purpose of providing in depth instruction in the application of the pedagogical principles of British educator Charlotte Mason (1842-1923). Led by Ambleside staff, participants spend 16 + hours in seminar style reading and discussion of Charlotte Mason's writings; thereby, gaining a fundamental understanding of her method and philosophy of education.
