So you think Charlotte Mason homeschooling is right for you and your family, but you have no idea where to start, especially when your children are so little. Do you jump into preschool activities, or do something else? What is Charlotte Mason all about, anyways? And how are you going to keep your eyes open long enough to read Charlotte Mason's volumes between late-night nursing sessions with the baby, and early mornings with a toddler?
Charlotte Mason Preschool Foundations is the book that I wished I had when I was nursing a newborn all night and chasing a toddler all day. I knew I wanted to use Charlotte Mason's philosophy, but I didn't know where to start. Even after teaching in a Charlotte Mason school, I had no idea what the early years should look like.
Charlotte Mason Preschool Foundations is a two-part eBook, helping you build a foundation in Charlotte Mason's philosophy, and helping your child develop a foundation that will support them in their future schooling. This book is designed for parents with children ages 0-6, with activities for toddlers, preschoolers, and Kindergarteners.
What People Are Saying
The specific tips and ideas for what to teach during these early years were incredibly helpful. I enjoyed the way you discussed ideas/philosophies and reasoning behind not only what people normally think about Preschool years, but also the quotes and reasoning of Charlotte Mason in each section."
Charlotte Mason Preschool Foundation is an eye opening text for the mothers who are either new to the Charlotte Mason philosophy or have basic knowledge but unsure of how to apply it to every day life with your little one. I really appreciated how the book gave nuggets of Ms. Mason's quotes on education while still providing a layman's terms explanation for today's parent."
As a mom who has chosen to send my son to part-time preschool... I found it very helpful for learning more about what to do on the days he isn't at preschool--and what not to worry about."
