Over the moon in love.

Greetings from Fairbanks, Alaska! We joined last week, when Miss Rae taught us how to make these tissue paper lanterns. My little 2.5 year old was over the moon in love with this craft. I couldn’t be happier with starting our storytime journey illuminated by your inspiration and genuine love, we can feel it all the way up here in the cold north. My child has already memorized the songs, the story, and the dragon breathing exercise from last month. Thank you so very much for sharing your light, Miss Becca.

I was skeptical. Now I’m all in.

My 3.5 year old and I have just recently completed the free intro week of Little Round School House. I was a little skeptical because we are a primarily screen-free family. However, the Circle Time was so special and added so much more to our day than I imagined it could!!!! Needless to say, I am “all in."

Miss Becca showed me how.

I knew there were certain things I wanted to incorporate in our homeschooling, including circle time, songs and fingerplays, and self-expression through storytelling and reenactment, but there was nothing available specifically showing me how to do all these things ‚Äď until I discovered Ms. Becca and Storytime.

More wonder in daily life

The circle time helps me bring more wonder into daily life. I don’t have to remember to research and learn finger plays and songs, or think of seasonal stories. I can watch a few with my child and learn it all and keep doing it outside of Storytime.

PURCHASE by the SEASON

Purchase the FULL PROGRAM

Little Round Schoolhouse¬ģ¬†offers sliding scale pricing for¬†Storytime's full program.

$325 | Tier 1

This is for you if:

  • You are comfortably able to meet all your basic needs. You may have some debt, but it doesn‚Äôt threaten your security or well-being.
  • You have financial security, a personal savings account you regularly contribute to, or you own your home/property.
  • You ‚Äúpay it forward‚ÄĚ with this price by creating support access for those with less while supporting a more equitable world.
Purchase FULL PROGRAM for $325

$250 | Tier 2

This is for you if:

  • You may be paying off debt or working to build savings, but you have access to a regular income.¬†
  • You do not spend most of your time thinking about meeting basic needs such as food, shelter, medical care, child care, etc.¬†
  • Making this investment means cutting back on some discretionary spending (such as going out to dinner, buying coffee, or buying a new outfit), but the sacrifice is short-term.
Purchase FULL PROGRAM for $250

$175 | Tier 3

This is for you if:

  • You have frequent stress from meeting basic needs.
  • You qualify for government assistance such as food stamps and health care.
  • You don‚Äôt have access to personal savings.
  • Paying the middle tier would make things difficult for you in the short term. You could put away money each month to save up for the middle tier of the program, but you would have to save for longer than six months.

Hear what Maggie has to say about Storytime...

"As a mother to two little ones, I have felt my dreams for their childhood often collide with the exhaustion of simply keeping them safe and well-fed.

A childhood full of magic, music, verse, and storytelling has felt hard to prioritize, especially when this type of knowledge was not something I came into motherhood possessing. When would I have the time to read the books? To memorize the songs? To learn the crafts?  When would I find the energy to create meaningful rhythms that flowed with us throughout each season? 

This vision for my children’s early childhood plastered my Pinterest boards but always felt completely out of reach when it came to the chaos of our daily lives. That was until we discovered Little Round Schoolhouse and Storytime. 

The single most valuable gift that Storytime offers is accessibility. It takes many beautiful components of a deeply intentional early childhood education and makes them accessible to all children and their caregivers. You don’t need to have an early childhood education degree, send your children to an expensive private school, have all the fancy Waldorf toys, read all the books, or try to do everything yourself. All you need is Storytime.

Storytime meets you right where you are. In the kitchen, bedraggled after another night of not much sleep, wondering how you will make it through till naptime (or the next 5 years). Storytime is there, offering rhythm, consistency, and beauty to your family. Storytime sparks joy and connection through story and verse, while providing a vision and a step-by-step roadmap to a childhood for my children that no longer feels just out of reach.  

It is pure magic."
