“I was so happy that I finally found a curriculum that was non-religious, nature and play-based and that was engaging to my son. We have so much fun doing pre-k! I can’t say enough good things about Blossom and Root! I am so grateful for the curriculum!” – Vanessa W., Blossom and Root Early Years
“Blossom and Root has been a dream come true for us. After a couple of miserable months using a different curriculum, my sweet boy was losing his love of learning and was beginning to dislike “school.” I came across Blossom and Root and, oh my goodness, it has been everything we wanted! My little guy loves it and we have the most wonderful time learning together. He actually begs to do school now! Thank you!” – Kimberly S., Blossom and Root First Grade
“Blossom and Root Kindergarten has been a great tool for us in our first year of homeschooling. It is extremely easy to set up and follow, as well as customizable in terms of scheduling. The art studies were a big hit for both of my children and the integrated math and science was engaging. The prep work really is minimal, which was important to me as a mom of 2 young children. I definitely recommend this curriculum as a gentle introduction to more focused work and learning at home.” – Courtney B., Blossom and Root Kindergarten
