Peacocks pick their way among the banyans in Fairchild Tropical Gardens, trailing their magnificent tails behind them. World-class orchestras and opera singers perform at the Adrienne Arsht Center. In this beautiful international city of Miami there is a growing community of home educators who have adopted the philosophy and methods of Charlotte Mason in order to glorify God and serve others through an education that values the wonder of life in our time and place.
