Our Homeschool in Detail

Note that my “style” or approach is evolving. So you may find things we did for my oldest at Preschool that I did totally different for when my youngest arrived at that age. Overall our at-home education is an eclectic mix of Charlotte Mason, Montessori, Unit Studies, Waldorf, Secular, Forest School and probably some things that don’t even have a label!

Resources and Books by Homeschool Philosophy

Personally, I pull from Charlotte Mason, Montessori, Waldorf and Secular homeschooling philosophies of education and create a living education at home that fits our family’s values and my children’s personalities. I am sharing below lots of resources I have read and pulled from over the years. I acknowledge there are other styles not represented here so do not believe this list to be comprehensive.
