Since 2003 Donna Simmons and Paul Newton have been creating a range of friendly and empowering publications and services designed to help every homeschooler with an interest in Waldorf education.
Books and Audio Downloads
We know that no two homeschooling families are alike and so we take care to make sure that our materials are adaptable to a wide range of situations. Thus we provide help both to those who want a year-by-year curriculum to follow and those who want to put together their own program.
Each year's curriculum is easy to follow, inspiring and full of teaching advice, troubleshooting, step-by-step lesson plans and in-depth discussion of the reasons for what is done. We address all aspects of your child's education, not just what happens during the main lesson blocks.
Those not wishing to use a curriculum can buy components of our curriculum; the stand-alone books we have written (and range of audio downloads); or choose from our carefully selected range of books for Waldorf homeschooling and conscious parenting. Visit the Christopherus Bookstore.
We also created an Amazon store which Donna has filled with books that she feels are of high quality and which will meet the needs of a wide range of children. Purchase books from Amazon or use this service to research what to order from your library!
Need someone to talk through your year's plans? Need help with implementing your curriculum? Need help finding a balance between your different children's needs? We offer a consultation service to help.
The Homeschool Journey Blog and e-Mail Newsletter
Humorous, hard-hitting and thoughtful, the Homeschool Journey Blog is an invaluable resource for Waldorf homeschoolers and parents of all kinds. Each month's issue generally includes a number of article-length pieces and occasional shorter pieces.
Do keep in touch by subscribing to the free Homeschool Journey e-mail newsletter.
An Informative Website
In addition to the above you will find a whole range of resources on this website. We have divided these up into 3 categories: Learning More (where you'll find introductions to both Waldorf and home education, an archive of articles, and more); Resources (networking, links, gallery of homeschoolers' work, etc.) and a special Early Years section.
