Golden Days: Unit One of The Small Folk Learning Series

Golden Days: Unit One of The Small Folk Learning Series


“Golden Days” is the first unit of the Small Folk Learning Series: an early years homeschool curriculum for children 3-5 inspired by the Charlotte Mason, Waldorf, and Reggio Emilia Philosophies. Through a gentle holistic approach, early math, literacy, science, and nature studies are all integrated with activities to strengthen healthy social and emotional development and build good habits for life.


This unit covers “the basics” and lays a foundation for the rest of the units in the series. Because of this, there are several different themes interwoven into it. A major goal for this unit is to help you establish a regular rhythm tailored to your child and their developmental needs. It also highlights the beauty and joy of the world around us, inviting your child to look and listen closely to the wonder that abounds. Another big theme of this unit is families and home living. You will learn about different families and homes, the importance of keeping your space tidy, and about pets, and the animals who become a part of our family.
