North Area Support Group

    Support groups are located throughout Palm Beach County. These groups meet monthly at parks throughout the county and parents can choose them according to their location or need. Monthly meetings consist of a biblical devotion, an information time for parents, as well as a play/social time for the children & teens. Field trips, service projects, Moms' Night Out, and holiday celebrations are all coordinated through these groups. We encourage prospective members to check out the various support groups until they find one that meets their needs, and then to plug into that group and become involved in it. Support groups will be an encouragement to you and to your children!

North Area Park Day Meetings:

Where: Mirasol Park, 12385 Jog Road, at the northeast corner of the Mirasol development.

            12:30 P.M. Mentoring, encouragement, and prayer time

            1:00 P.M.  Informational meeting, field trip sign ups, and fellowship

While the children play in the park, parents discuss homeschool issues and educational opportunities that are available. Signups for all PEC field trips and events take place at the monthly park days, and if space is available, signups will be posted on the calendar after the meeting. PEC meetings are open to all homeschoolers and those considering homeschooling, however, membership is required for field trip participation.

Bring your teens for their own devotion, activity, and to just hang out with other teens.

*Seating is limited, you may want to bring camp chairs!

Please remember to clip and bring your BOXTOPS 4 Education and TYSON A+ labels to the park meetings.

*Childcare is not provided at any PEC meetings.  Every parent is responsible for their own child(ren) as PEC is not responsible for the safety or supervision of any children at their events.*
