“I’ve searched everywhere for a program that includes the lessons, teaching guide, and the materials needed to homeschool my 4-year-old. Then I found this gem. I’ve referred everyone I know to this program – and now I look like the hero!”

Kris (TX)

“I was dreading the fall and fearing the inevitable ‘distance learning’…until I discovered this program. Now I’m excited to be a homeschool mommy!”

Emily (CT)

“This program saved the day. Our two children (ages 4 and 6) have been home since March of this year, and they can’t sit still in front of a computer unless it’s playing Peppa Pig. Little Dude’s “At-Home Lessons” has kept them busy for hours and hours – and they’re learning really important lessons and doing really interesting activities!”
