The Heart of Learning provides heart-centered guidance and essential information for teaching young children and for creating a nurturing and effective learning environment. This educational classic has informed homeschooling families for four decades, and continues to provide the foundation of Oak Meadow's K-3 curriculum.

Our 40th Anniversary Edition includes expanded sections on sustainable homeschooling, mindful parenting, technology, boredom and entertainment, nature-based learning, and more. With its unique focus on helping the parent/teacher develop strong inner resources and become a better teacher, The Heart of Learning is highly recommended for every adult who guides and shapes the lives of children.
