What People Are Saying
”I was never a crafty person until now. It used to just seem like a lot of work and I wasn't into it at all. But all that has really changed in the last month or so. It's definitely been a real refresher to my life right now. It honestly helped bring out the mom I've always wanted to be. Fun, joyful, peaceful, creative, trying new things every day.” ~Lindsay
"This curriculum has not only helped my children learn important skills & ideas, but it has changed the way I view childhood & parenting! The years of wonder & discovery are fleeting, I’m so very thankful for the wisdom and direction that lies within these pages. I have slowed down, taken time to explore WITH my children, and most importantly I now see the value in play. I can’t thank Kathy Lee & Leslie enough. You’ve added quality and meaning to our homeschool!” ~Kristina
“I went through a ton of preschool materials and so much stress when I started homeschooling my first. I had actually come to the point, after spending a lot of money and a lot of time and after a lot of disappointment, that the only way I would find what I wanted was to write my own curriculum. I was so discouraged. I wish I would have read the homegrown preschooler first! I was definitely overcomplicating things and not focusing on what really mattered. I now do A Year of Playing Skillfully with my preschooler and we are all loving it! It has not only freed me up to enjoy this journey, but renewed my own sense of wonder along the way! We have good days and bad, but I’m convinced I’m on the right path and we are loving the journey. It’s been a long time since I’ve read anything so practical and had as many “aha!” moments! I’ve learned to step back and let my kids make mistakes and that art is about the process not the product. (How did I not know that before?!) I also love the additional resource suggestions provided in AYOPS and have found so much encouragement and so many wonderful ideas on the AYOPS in action Facebook page. I can’t recommend it enough!” ~Erica
