We Feel Your Pain...
A Short Intro to ShillerLearning by Founder Larry Shiller
I'm too busy to do lesson preparation.Our scripted lessons means ZERO lesson prep time.
"What?! No more hours watching online videos on how to "present" the Montessori materials to my kids?! Just read what's in quotes?! YES! I could do this!" - Pam Collins
My kids complain about math. (I do, too.)Multi-sensory lessons include singing, dancing, playing with proven, Montessori-based manipulatives.
"Our math allergy has disappeared! We can go at our own pace and enjoy the game-like activities and the silly songs that are building confidence in my daughter (and me) that math isn't so tough after all!" - Choosy Homeschooler
I want Montessori because I heard it's amazing. But I don't know anything about Montessori.Montessori language, activities, and philosophy are woven into the curriculum. No study required!
"I did ping the local conventional and one international Montessori homeschooling newsgroup about ShillerLearning... those that have used ShillerLearning think it is a "God Send!" (direct quote)" - Monica Gandara
I have four kids. My curriculum cost is skyrocketing. I want ShillerLearning but am afraid I can't afford it.We got you: One kit works for ALL CHILDREN in the family. Your cost will be less than $29/year/child.
"I've really appreciated being able to use the same kit with multiple children, it's saved me time, stress and money!" - Emma Jones
I want to switch into ShillerLearning but don't know where to start.Our comprehensive diagnostic tests identify every hole in your child's math and language arts knowledge and ability - and place them exactly where they need to be.
"Things are going great since we switched our math curriculum to ShillerLearning. Bryan has struggled with math up until this time, but now it seems to be one of his favorite subjects. I can 't believe the change! He even enjoys taking the diagnostic tests. I especially like how the activities associated with each specific question on the tests are identified." - Vicky Kapyran
OK but I already have a bunch of manipulatives and don't want to pay for what I don't need.Get our digital kits. They include all lesson plans, songs, and printable manipulatives. You'll save big time.
"Thank you so much for adding the whole book downloads to ShillerLearning! We have been using Shiller for about 3 1/2 years and LOVE the program. Mom is even getting better at math. It is such a time saver to download the whole book and be done! ShillerLearning is truly the best program out there and now it is the easiest too." - Jill Perrin
Trusted, Fun, Convenient!Wouldn't you like your children to be 'addicted to learning'?
"Choosing ShillerLearning was the best decision we ever made for our children - and us." - Jory L. La Costa, CA

What is ShillerLearning
ShillerLearning is the premiere homeschool publisher of preK - 8th grade Montessori-based curriculum kits.
Designed for gifted students, ASD students, and all students in between, ShillerLearning's money-saving multi-year kits remove the stress of teaching math and language arts while protecting your pocketbook.
Multi-Sensory with Catchy Songs
Our Montessori-based curricula is more effective than other non-Montessori-based curricula because it recognizes that children have four primary learning styles:
Nerves that connect to the brain
Reading and viewing pictures from a lesson book
The retina and optic nerve
Playing with manipulatives
Nerve cells in the skin
Listening and singing to music
Moving the body
Nerve cells deep in the muscles
- Each learning style reaches a different part of the brain, buildng important connections and long memories. This is why ShillerLearning students attain deeper understanding, longer retention, and a solid foundation.
- Our songs are fully integrated into the curriculum. Children - and surprisingly, parents - love them. Take a listen!
Works for All Students
- Whether your child is gifted, ASD or normal, is a current or former Montessori student, or not, is a pre-K student or in junior high, ShillerLearning meets that child wherever they are in their learning journey.
- With our unique 2C approach, your child will master every lesson, achieving both Competency and Closure, and allowing each student to work at his or her own pace and using their specific abilities and knowledge to progress, without the anxiety and stress that so often accompany learning.
- That's why ShillerLearning works so effectively for all students. And why so many parents have found ShillerLearning to be the only curriculum they'll ever need for their family.
