About Alan Whitehead’s Golden Beetle Books she says, “I’ve spent the past five years attempting to craft a home education for our girls that’s grounded in our part of the world and connects us to the spirit of place. When I discovered Alan’s work a few years ago, it was such an a-ha moment. The […]

“Thank you for all of the wonderful work you have done over the years! As a Lifetime member, I have been very pleased with your work!” – Pamela LaPorto
“I am super excited to make the switch to Earthschooling for our waldorf curriculum this year. I’ve used several other curriculums for waldorf but going over the curriculum from Earthscooling has been utterly amazing. I don’t think need to look at the library for any supplements. You have a great price and a ton of […]
“We did Earthschooling with my sons growing up and now they are both successful in college. What a wonderful way to educate our children! I am so very thankful for all the beautiful activities and learning it brought into our home!” – Shambala Kids
“Thanks so much for your hard work Kristie. We have downloaded the samples and have totally fallen in love with the method!” – Clare
“Thank you so much! I had gotten a free Grade 2 block when you were giving one away right when COVID hit and I really loved how that was laid out. So many of the other Waldorf programs are a little light on the specifics – like word families, for example.” – Kimberly
“I loved your webinar on planning, very informative and reassuring as I am one of those parents who is over scheduling, over planning and driving myself crazy about getting it right.” – Wanzilû
“Holy Guacamole! You folks are on your game!!! Thank you for the introduction. I am very, very impressed. This from someone who has taught Waldorf 1-8 and has written several grades worth of curriculum.” – Jen MK
“I would also just like to say how much I love this curriculum, it has made homeschooling an amazing experience for me. I am especially fond of the photography, although I do not have Facebook so I have not been turning in photo assignments, I enjoy watching, taking notes, and learning all of the adventures […]
“This is such a blessing to our family and I look forward to using these resources for the years to come as I navigate this homeschool journey with our children.” – Tonya, Natural Earth Farm, Vermont
“Oh my goodness! I am so grateful to you and your team. Thank you for taking the time to send this additional information and for your words. I can imagine that you are extremely busy and appreciate the personal connection. I am so excited to have these resources and guidance to be my daughter’s main […]

“Thank you so much!!! I’m so grateful. This course is wonderful!! I’m excited to get my next book!” – Heidi
I wanted to let you know that my daughter and I are really enjoying Earthschooling Grade 7. It has been a great, smooth, transition for her (and myself), from Tia being in a Steiner class (with a Steiner teacher) for the past 5 years to us doing this together at home! It has been wonderful to […]
She says about the Mp3s for Earthschooling verses and stories: “Oh my, this is so wonderful! I couldn’t believe my eyes when I read this as I am a Deaf parent of a hearing child.” – Lisanne H.
“We are LOVING the curriculum and the new updates! Thank you so much for all you do!” – Carrie Martin
“I wanted to highlight how much, as a parent, I appreciated the quotes and detailed descriptions of Rudolf Steiner before the lessons. It helped tremendously in understanding why we do things with the children during certain ages. It also helped my husband who worked on a lot of form drawing with Jayce. Overall, I can’t […]
“Thank you to Earthschooling for an amazing curriculum!” – Pahito86
Your site, services and documents are fantastic and will guide me well for many years to come, thank you very much.
We entered week 2 in preschool Earthschooling this week and I love how subtle, yet powerful this all is. Theme of the week is moon and we needle felted a moon garland with the moon phases, David (4yo) loved it so much that he got the responsibility of the very sharp needle. And as we […]
I really love your material and feel, because I have no real teacher support in my work, that your (teacher support) videos and lessons bring me connections and insights I want to have, even if it is not face to face.
I’m always incredibly impressed by how promptly my questions are answered by your staff, even late on a Sunday night. I did not expect to hear from anyone until at least midway through Monday. You all are great!
Earthschooling is a Waldorf-inspired curriculum with a wholistic and multi-cultural approach. The lifetime membership is well worth it, especially for a family like yours! There is curriculum online that you may easily access or print. Video tutorials, ebooks and more.
I LOVE that you have the same theme each week across the grades in your plans – it makes homeschooling multi ages/grades easier! I’ve heard this becomes key to successfully homeschooling multiple children/grades/ages – so thank you for taking that part of our planning off our hands and looking after it in the monthly plans so the […]
I Love this amazing (block crayon) video series!! I bought Earthschooling as a homeschooler and now use it constantly working in a Waldorf school – such an amazing tool!!! (Handwork Hollow)
I am thrilled to get these tutorials. I have wished for this kind of instruction in watercolor and block crayon drawing for years; in fact, not having this skill is what stopped our Waldorf-inspired homeschooling!
We used one of (the three teacher tutorials we ordered) yesterday for a teacher training session and it was great! Our local teachers loved it and it’s so good for us, as we don’t have qualified people in house to teach us these things. I love your website and CEFZ will become regular customers.
“OH MY GOSH!!! Kristie – I know I have said this before, but thank you thank you thank you for the pre school plans. They are making my life SO easy with planning our next block… I didn’t think I’d do something this formal with M this year, but since he’s turned 3 this is EXACTLY what […]
Thank you so much for what you are doing. Both my husband and I were Waldorf teachers. I am now a Midwife and we have a Biodynamic farm and homeschool our three children. Your curriculum is amazing and we are so grateful.
I am the Director of the California Coast LifeWays Training in the San Francisco Bay Area. I regularly refer folks to your website and books and they have been much appreciated!! All the best in your wonderful work!
(This testimonial HERE) almost exactly explains what our family is feeling. Having also stumbbled upon The BEarth Institute we purchased the Life-time package inclusive of high school – I am so grateful for discovering such a group of passionate and dedicated conscious teachers, that present me with a curriculum that is so fully rounded acedemically, spiritually and mentally. […]
It’s important to learn about and connect with our environment. This is exactly what the BEearth Institute’s Earthschooling is all about. Nature education is something we all did naturally as we played outside, learning the consequences of gravity and that walking through thick mud often times means you’re digging for a shoe that’s pulled from your […]
“Having experience with Waldorf education, I knew I wanted something Waldorf inspired but infused with a ton of opportunities to tie in herbs, real food, the natural world, wildlife, and the like. The Earthschooling Curriculum is all this and more. I am so excited to use it as my base, my roots if you will, […]
These are making a world of difference to my planning. Even though I may not use the plan exactly as they have laid it out, to have this foundation provided as a springboard for my own planning, is wonderfully valuable. I’m finding it terrific the way they have given each week a seasonally related theme […]
Book Review for The Journey of Analise Available in hardback and mp3 chapters at www.JourneyofAnalise.com When this book arrived on my doorstep, the first thing I noticed was its beauty. The cover and pictures are done in the typical Waldorf style by the lovely Robyn Wolfe of Waldorfish. As a children’s book on the temperaments […]
I just finished watching the How to Create a Main Lesson Book videos in the Teacher Support Package, and they are great! Thank you so much for providing them.
In addition to being a wonderfully useful and helpful guidebook (The book, The Temperaments and the Adult-Child Relationship) for adults seeking to understand and help the children in their care, Kristie Burns’ book is joyous good reading. She brings to each page a deep understanding that is infused with a happy enthusiasm for children and […]
