Homeschooling Philosophies and Approaches

As I prepare for this upcoming school year, and in response to some questions I have gotten lately, I found a link to a website that outlines some common homeschooling approaches.  http://www.homeschoollearning.com/approaches/

We desire for our children to love learning, love reading, and to “gain a heart of wisdom” (Psalm 90:12).  We want to challenge each of our children where they each are intellectually and educationally.

If we had to be pinned down, I think we would fall under the Charlotte Mason approach for the preschool years, with some Literature-Based and Classical leanings.  We think we will transition into more of a Classical approach as the children grow.
