What people like-
- What’s not to like? EP is a FREE homeschool curriculum!
- EP was created by a homeschool mother.
- EP covers all core subjects (reading, math, history, science, language arts) and then some (music, art, PE, foreign language).
- Some of the subjects are set up so that multiple children in the same family can learn together.
- All of the reading and teaching materials are available for free online, and the links are provided.
- Lessons are by grade level and by day.
- EP is set up to be self-guiding for older children and teenagers.
- The reading selections are great.
What people don't like-
- This is an online curriculum so the child must have access to a computer and the internet.
- Some of the reading may be too advanced for the grade level.
- The layout can be tricky to understand at first.
- All of the levels and subjects are listed on the sidebar.
- It's helpful to read the FAQ and how-to-use pages.
- You can pick and choose what you like from EP, use it as a supplement to what you are already doing or use it as a complete curriculum. Either way, EP can save you money.

Summary from company- “We exist to help families homeschool. We enable families to homeschool who thought they couldn’t because of a lack of finances, a lack of time, or a lack of know-how. Others join EP just because it’s easy and fun and they’re confident of the quality of education. EP seeks to free families from the burden of pursuing the “perfect” and encourages them to let it be “enough.” Each family and each child is different and we seek to provide the resources to enable your family to be who you were meant to be. And yes, it’s all free. You’ll need paper, pencil, etc. and some minor supplies if you choose to do the experiments and art projects, but all of the reading materials, etc. are all free and online.”
What Friends are Saying About Easy Peasy All-in-One Homeschool
Easy peasy all in one homeschool is a great place to start! Pinterest helps a lot too! -Apryll
we enjoy easy peasy www.allinonehomeschool.com the lessons are short, yet effective, your kids would be able to study the same concepts in science and history, but the older child would study them in a little bit greater depth. there are no books to buy, unless you really want to use paper books for reading as opposed to a link to the chapter you are working on online, and minimal prep time and effort on the part of the parent. occasionally you will print off a worksheet, but mostly everything is online. Cathy Duffy reviewed and recommended it saying it's style is a cross between traditional and charlotte mason styles. it is set up day by day so you aren't overwhelmed with preparing and keeping on track. that is already done for you. it is also free. it connects you to all free sites as well for practicing and reinforcing concepts the kids are learning. look over the site and read the FAQ page first so you can easily navigate the site. - Lori
check out the science options on the easy peasy site.www.allinonehomeschool.com you can pick between biology, chemistry/physics, earth science or zoology. on the menu section, just scroll down to the science section and click on one. it breaks everything down day by day for you. internet links right to the textbooks you need, and it is all free. the best part is it all the kids can be studying the same things. the first and third graders can do the activities on the lower level, and the fifth grader would do the mid level studies of the same topics, so you can still study together, but keep it challenging at the same time too. -Raun
I am using Easy Peasy but supplementing with my own and molding it to fit us: For instance adding an LDS studies course and doing the books in paper print instead of online and also I have added nature study (almost like a Charlotte Mason but not quite), and a few others to make it "fit" us. -Antoinette
Easy Peasy has fun preschool stuff. - Heidi
