"We're having so much fun, my kids don't even realize they're learning."

Spend a few hours with this  PreK-1 Curriculum and Coaching Program and your kids will be begging to "do school" every day!

GET STARTED
If you’re a homeschooling parent who believes in a gentle and playful approach to learning, but also need a plan to teach your child to read, write and do math...

You're in the RIGHT place.

A home education opens the door to so much more...

More Time to Let Your Kids be Kids...

to reclaim the joy and wonder of childhood.

More Enriched Learning Experiences...

hands-on opportunities to explorecreateinvestigate.

More connection, smiles + laughter...

building strong family bonds.

More Flexibility to Follow your Child's Lead...

leaning into her natural curiosities.

More Memories You get to be part of...

re-living the magic of childhood.

But still, you might hear yourself quietly wonder...

Do I have what it takes?
Will my kids get what they need?
What tone should I set?
How do I cover the academics, but also follow their lead?

If you feel besieged by worry and doubt about how to homeschool your child...what tone you want to set...whether you have what it takes.

You're Not Alone.

Home education is a serious commitment. Your decision to homeschool may be exciting and liberating, but at the same time a bit overwhelming and daunting

It’s natural to feel anxious and worried... because, after all, these are your children, and you simply want what’s best for them. 

You may already have a vision for what you want in a home education. You value play as the work of the child, preserving her natural wonder. 

And while it's true that young children don't need a program or curriculum, there's nothing wrong with you wanting one.

Your desire to feel competent and capable as a home educator is valid, especially as you start this journey.

You want to raise smart, successful, creative, well-rounded kids.

You want them to be self-directed, confident learners.

You want them to love learning. 

That doesn’t just happen by accident.

Here is your roadmap. Let me be your guide.

 
Introducing...

Artful Teaching.

Joyful Learning.®

The all-in-one, Reggio-Inspired curriculum that will have your kids asking to

“do school” every day. 

DESIGNED FOR CHILDREN Pre-K to Grade 1

{All you need is ONE hour per day!}

YES! I WANT MY KIDS TO LOVE LEARNING!
⭑⭑⭑⭑⭑  "The Educator's Dream" ⭑⭑⭑⭑⭑
- Cara, Homeschool Mom, @Hello.Moonpie 

All-in-one, Reggio-Inspired Curriculum for the Whole Child

If you’ve ever felt a bit overwhelmed and uncertain, you just wish someone told you what to do, when to do it and how...

But you also hate the idea of a prescriptive curriculum, endless worksheets, paper pencil tasks and prolonged periods of seat work…

While you might love the idea of an artful, open-ended approach, you're equally intimidated by the idea of a creative, hands-on curriculum, all the mess, all the supplies… all the work..

If you want a child-led learning experience but still want a plan and a bit of structure...

I’m here to tell you, there’s a better way, and I wish all parents knew this secret:

Artful Teaching. Joyful Learning.® brings a proven method that intentionally blends wonder, play and art with important academics….

Preserving the wonder of childhood, while also laying out a plan to ensure your child gets what she needs.

This is the secret to a fruitful, effective, long-lasting homeschool journey. The Inspir{Ed} Method.

This is your plan. This is your guide.
SHOW ME THE CURRICULUM!

Meet Homeschool mom, Cara:

“We’re only three days in on adding the magic that is @artfulteaching.joyfullearning's new curriculum to our homeschool lineup, and already it’s changed pretty much everything!

We followed Alana’s instructions to work together and come up with some shared goals for our homeschool year and ended up happy crying and hugging and teamwork-making just about the cutest doodle reminder list ever. Then we went to work on THIS: a life-sized body tracing masterpiece!

I’ve been looking for this exact thing since we started this homeschool journey four years ago and when Alana sent it over, it felt like Christmas morning! SO much beautiful, thoughtful goodness to unpack 😍😍😍 And so far every project we try is an even bigger hit than the last!

If you’ve ever wanted to homeschool, but felt overwhelmed at the thought of it or you are homeschooling currently but feel like something is missing, you should def check it out. She makes it so easy and her approach is the perfect mix of academics and play. It just feels so...meaningful.” - Cara, @Hello.Moonpie

HI. I'M ALANA.

I believe children are incredibly brilliant and capable human beings, and helping parents and educators tap into their children's full potential - through an engaging, hands-on approach to learning - is my life's calling and purpose.

As a former public school teacher, knew children deserved morebut I was locked into a rigid system, stuck in an old-fashioned model that was heavy on assessments, rigorous curriculum and efficiency.

After years of teaching, studying, reading and devouring the latest in educational research about how children learn best, earning my Masters of Education in Curriculum and Instruction, I developed my own homeschool enrichment program, where I applied my years of research and practical experience, and implemented a play-based curriculum.

WONDER, the ARTSNATURE and PLAY were the cornerstones of the program,

and children’s learning flourished

My mission is to help you too become the inspiring, skilled teacher your children need and deserve, giving you a PLAN and FRAMEWORK to help you teach with ease, confidence and a splash of creativity.

Advanced Training: Wonder-Learning. How to use your child’s interests and curiosities across the curriculum

 

This curriculum is based on universal values such as kindness, generosity, honesty and responsibility. While it is a secular curriculum, faith-based elements can be easily incorporated into the activities.

 

All children are capable. My approach is one of inclusivity, so no matter the age, learning style, developmental or cognitive ability, the curriculum is one that address the whole child, and is easily adapted. 

The problem with traditional curricula is the heavy focus on paper-pencil/seat-work tasks. All learners are experiential, and learn by doing, experiencing and reflecting on experience. This curriculum is designed for all children to achieve success.

The curriculum has its roots in a Reggio-Inspired approach to early learning. One that sees children as highly capable, with an innate desire to learn. This approach is based on a Constructivist stance, that children actively make meaning of their world through experience, social interaction and reflection.

That said, rich literature and outdoor exploration {Charlotte Mason}, as well as invitations to learn {Montessori}, and following the child's lead {Unschooling} all play a big part in this curriculum as well.

We believe in Artful Teaching. Joyful Learning. We believe in this pedagogy.

We believe it will transform how you homeschool, and give you the tools and confidence for a long, fruitful homeschool journey. 

We stand by this curriculum, and offer a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee. 

In order to be eligible for the 30 Day Satisfaction Guarantee, you must submit proof that you've given the currriculum a try. If you've gone through at least ONE MONTH of your curriculum, and feel that it's not working for you or your family, simply share the work you've done with your children within the first 30 days of purchase, and we'll refund your fees.

A refund on downloadable/digital products {like this full curriculum} is unheard of in this industry. We are so confident in our program, we stand by it 100%.
