Homeschooling curriculum that many one Tree Families have used over the years*
* One Tree does not mandate what type of curriculum families use at home. Just like every child learns differently, every family teaches differently. Our suggestion is to see what makes the most sense for your teaching style and for what is in line with your family goals and values. We see homeschooling as an opportunity for families to learn alongside their children and we believe when children see their parents excited about learning something, the children will follow suit.
While we are a non-religiously based program, a lot of curriculum available in the homeschooling community is Christian based and this is why there may be some Christian based programs listed here. In the same way, some curriculum is secular, Waldorf based, etc. This list, in no way, is intended to influence any family’s religious beliefs and/or values.
