Point to some lovely flower or gracious tree, not only as a beautiful work but as a beautiful thought of God.

Implementing a blend of Charlotte Mason’s educational philosophies with classical education techniques and the Montessori method IS possible without feeling overwhelmed or like you’re cutting corners! If you love pieces of all three of these philosophies and want to implement them in your homeschool, this Gentle + Classical program is perfect for you.

This detailed program takes Charlotte Mason’s “Formidable List of Attainments for a Child of 6” and implements them in an rhythmic, organic way, blending them gently with memorization and natural, child-led activities. Through the study of nature and an in-depth exploration of God’s creation, your child will grow in knowledge, skill, good habits, and reverence.
