Religious or secular?
Religious all in one programs would include sonlight, alpha and omega, and sos. Secular all in programs would include oakmeadow and calvert.

All-in-one? I've never been able to buy one without subbing out at least math and phonics, or math and reading, but I love the following and have used many of their materials before, and they come as boxed with lesson plans if you choose:

Seton

Kolbe Academy

Catholic Heritage Curriculum

Memoria Press

I am a Home Schooling, Vaccinating, Non spanking, Nightmare Cuddling, Dessert Giving, Bedtime Kissing, Book Reading, Stay at Home Mom. I believe in the benefit of organized after school activities and nosy, involved parents. I believe in spoiling my children. I believe that I have seen the village and I do not want it anywhere near my children. Now for the controversial stuff:  we're Catholic, we're conservative, and we own guns (now there's no need to ask, lol).             Aimee

 umm none if I HAD TO I would pick oak meadow but I prefer to not pick one all in one but rather bits and pieces of what we need.  If you want religous I have seen and really liked the layout and how SOS works but overall its not for me. It really depends on the type of homeschooler you are and how your kids learn and a lot of other personal preferences tossed in.  I would never start out and its highly recomended you dont go for one big box your first year. Try diffent things see what you love and what your kids respond to, like and retain the best with

What core are you using?  We are about 2/3 through with B and also doing the preschool 4/5.  I hope you like it, my kiddos sure do.

I've never used one, but if I had to I would go with Oak Meadow.
