If your child is an Early Learner (1st grade or younger} and you plan to homeschool…

Childhood is too short to sit at a desk with worksheets all day.

"My kids can't wait to do school every day!"

- Elice, Homeschool Mom

What do ‘Artful Teaching’ and ‘Joyful Learning’ actually mean? 

Artful Teaching is..

♥๏ธŽ Inspiring your young children to love learning.

♥๏ธŽ Teaching with calm confidence because you are attuned to your child’s unique needs, and prepared with the right tools

♥๏ธŽ Incorporating beauty, art, and learning into your everyday activities

♥๏ธŽ Calm, relaxed, natural: knowing where your child is academically and adjusting your teaching as needed

♥๏ธŽ Finally achieving "homeschool harmony" - knowing how to deal with learning meltdowns and toddlers who want to be in the middle of the action 

♥๏ธŽ Feeling organized and feel “on top of it” with a plan to cultivate your child's curiosity, while also making sure the fundamentals are covered.

Joyful Learning is...

♥๏ธŽ Following our interests and curiosities in a playful way.

♥๏ธŽ Sparking joy and wonder in the everyday.

♥๏ธŽ Kids are engaged and can’t wait “to do school everyday. Beautiful, blissful days!

♥๏ธŽ Your child feeling safe because their curiosity is honored, respected and encouraged.

♥๏ธŽ Your child is excited to share their thoughts and “learnings” with you because they know they matter.

♥๏ธŽ A calm - yet fun - learning environment where your child thrives

♥๏ธŽ Your child is proud, confident and motivated to learn.

You want to give your child the experiences that will turn into a life-long love of learning. 

So what’s stopping you? 

A heavily hands-on yet still-fits-into-your-life plan to intentionally teach your child feels like something that you’ve yet to master.

I hear this from parents a lot.

Does any of this sound familiar to you?

Be your child’s favorite teacher - and become very, very good at it.

You need a plan to teach your kids.

The problem is traditional curriculum - workbooks and worksheets - don't inspire you or your kids. 

But following your kid's lead feels too unstructured, and you worry you'll miss important academics.

We believe that children learn best through play, not by sitting at a desk for 5 hours a day. We understand what it feels like to worry that your kids will fall behind, or that you aren't enough, which is why we have helped hundreds of parents and teachers teach with competence, ease, and creativity, so their kids fall in love with learning.

You don’t want to just teach the way you were taught. 

Let’s face it. We didn’t all have the very best examples when it came to teachers that made a positive impact on our lives. It was probably more about rote memorization than curiosity-driven mastery.

It’s time to elevate your teaching and give your child the enrichment that you wish you had when you were a young learner.

You can be the best teacher your child could have!

Your goal is homeschooling harmony.
You believe in child-led learning - but you worry that, in reality, it’ll be too chaotic for you. And your life is chaotic enough, thank you.
You can easily see this devolving into your schedule, your to-do list, and pretty much your whole life being totally dictated by the whims of mama-guilt and a curious child. 

You’ve been looking for a game-changer and here it is…

Child-led curiosity blended with teacher-guided instruction. Genius! 

You can homeschool with the best of both worlds.

You want to teach the long {and inspiring} game.

You want to foster your child’s curiosity. You want to feed them daily inspiration and serve it on a fun, playful, and aesthetically pleasing platter.

You don’t just want to teach the basics.

You want to teach your child to love learning. 

You want to offer them experiences that will nurture their sense of wonder and allow it to take root and bloom - forever. 

You want your child to have a sense of wonder that never leaves them.

Finding the right curriculum for your family isn’t easy.

Wherever you look, you find the same three things… 

โœ  A pencil and paper curriculum that only serves to recreate the butt-in-chair, nose-in-book, for a solid 6, 7, or 8-hours a day classroom experience.


๐Ÿช  Cookie cutter curriculum - sometimes based on religions or modalities that you don’t align with, that just aren’t personalized to your family’s beliefs, needs, or goals.


๐Ÿงฑ A giant wall of curriculum between you and your child, between your child and their own interests, between your child and the world around them - with no room for inspiration or play.

Art and play may be the first, but children have “a hundred languages” {or more!} and you don’t want to miss any of them.


There are many, many ways that children build knowledge and share their understanding of the world. Learning is an active process of taking in new information and experiences, and then integrating that new knowledge as they communicate their thoughts, feelings and ideas.  

Dance, music, sketching, sculpture, singing, building, painting, beads and wire are just a few of the Hundred Languages children use to make knowledge their own.

Artful Teaching.

Joyful Learning.®


An all-in-one curriculum rooted in the Reggio Emilia approach and based on the latest educational research. It's an all-inclusive program with extensive parental support - a program the whole family can enjoy. 

Simple + Fun

Our kid-approved, teacher-created curriculum gets kids active and engaged. The short but effective lessons offer the perfect mix of art, play and academics.


Academically Sound

A curriculum that covers everything. Research-based activities aligned with state and provincial standards keep kids engaged, and they don't even realize they're learning important academics!

Learn Together

Family style learning offers something for everyone - the toddler in tow, or the pre-teen who needs some extra hands-on stimulation.

Literature Rich

Each lesson begins with the BEST of children's picture books, read aloud to your child to build connection and foster a love of reading.

Hey, Mama!

If you’re a parent who believes in a gentle and playful approach to learning, but also need a plan to teach your Kindergartener or First Grader to read, write and do math...

You're in the RIGHT place.


Forget debating the public vs. private school experience. 


Your child deserves a school that’s personalized for them 

- and you’re just the parent for the job.


Your time and energy are precious resources and hands-on learning can seem like it’s a lot of work. 

Maybe even more than you’re sure you can take on. 

That is precisely why Artful Teaching. Joyful Learning.® does all of the heavy lifting for you, reducing your cognitive load and leaving you with time and energy. The time and energy to join in on the playful learning, the joyful art of teaching, and maybe even some beautiful expression yourself.

Artful Teaching.

"The Educator's Dream."

- Cara, @HelloMoonPie

If you're overwhelmed with worry and doubt about how to homeschool your child, what tone you want to set, or whether you can give them what they need….


I actually created this program just for you. Designed especially to rid you of that overwhelm and doubt. 

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

our decision to homeschool may be exciting and liberating but at the same time a bit overwhelming and daunting.

aking on teaching your child because it can be a weighty proposition.

You value play as the work of the child

We want to preserve the wonder of childhood. 

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

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

You want them to love learning.

That doesn’t just happen by accident.

You need a plan. Let me be your guide.


I'm Alana, your guide!

Helping parents and educators tap into their children's full potential - through an engaging, hands-on approach to learning - is my jam.

As a former school teacher, I knew children deserved more, but I was locked into a rigid and old-fashioned system, 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


I developed my own homeschool enrichment program - with and for my own children - where I applied my years of research and practical experience and implemented a play-based curriculum.


WONDER, the ARTS, NATURE, and PLAY were the cornerstones of the program,




You too can become the inspiring, skilled teacher your children need and deserve with a plan and framework to teach with confidence, ease and. a splash of creativity.

Their Faces Say it All.

real families. real memories.
