The Early Years: A Charlotte Mason Preschool Handbook

A new arrival always brings excitement, and we’re excited about the new arrival at SCM—The Early Years: A Charlotte Mason Preschool Handbook! This book is filled with Charlotte Mason’s ideas for the preschool years, presented in bite-size chunks with modern-day examples, inspiring quotes, and practical tips.

The ideas presented in our series on the Early Years have been taken from the information in this book. Of course, you’ll find much more detail and many more ideas in its 144 pages. Topics include habit training, proper physical care, using the senses, outdoor life, a personal acquaintance with nature, books and stores, art and music, spiritual life, parenting a gifted child, Charlotte’s thoughts on kindergarten, teaching reading, and more.

As usual, you can download a free sample, but this one is a little different. It’s the largest sample we’ve ever made available at nearly one-third of the book! We hope it will be useful information even if you don’t buy the book. Let us know what you think.


  1. I’m looking forward to this new book. It’s very applicable to my life at this stage. I’m especially interested in the habits section.

  2. The free download is great. What a reminder for us parents. We have such an amazing task bringing children into this world. I would love to win this book as I have three kids under six. What a help.
