Train up a Child Publishing's Daily Lesson Plans



Do you feel unequipped to teach your children and have trouble pulling school all together and keeping it going without a detailed plan?

If you are looking for a Christian literature-based homeschool curriculum that does not require a great deal of planning and preparation time, this is the one to choose!

I would absolutely recommend Train up a Child Publishing (formerly Epi Kardia), especially for any family that is interested in well-planned curriculums that are literature-based using a Charlotte Mason approach... I was impressed with how comprehensive the Daily Lesson Plans were and our family was not disappointed with the results of using it... I have learned so much about our history and Charlotte Mason's methods...I think I learned more from your curriculum than I did in school. --Tracey*
