The Gentle + Classical Preschool Level 2 has been designed for students K4 through 1st grade to explore literature, scripture, catechism, math, poetry, art, music, rich literature, and fun nursery rhymes in a gentle, classical way that follows the "Formidable List of Attainments for a Child of 6" set forth by Charlotte Mason.
Who is it for?
While the name alludes to younger children, this robust program fulfills anyone's requirements for language arts, music, art, Bible and math memorization for children through early elementary students. Many families use it for their children under 8, adding any formal phonics instruction and formal math instruction at each child's level.

This curriculum is incredible and has provided enhancement and guidance to to our family's education that I hadn't even considered. I'm so grateful that I found this curriculum and truly believe that it will lead to the development of an extremely well-rounded family. I can't thank you enough.
This has taken our homeschool to the next level. It gives us a focus on character and includes beautiful tales we wouldn’t have otherwise had. Originally I thought this would be the sprinkles on an already full curriculum. But it has become the spine of our core principles. Absolutely encourage everyone to use this curriculum in these early character building years!
G+C Preschool Level 2 Full Program BUNDLE (Digital ONLY)
So many great things about this program! I just love it all.
I would highly recommend this curriculum for a classical/Montessori type approach to early years of homeschooling. The only thing missing is a video of Erin teaching as she goes so you can see it come to life. I found the initial print and set up a bit overwhelming! Once I got it all laid out though, it became so much easier to put into practice. We love it!
