There are several ways to approach Latin. Pick one based on your child, your schedule, and your Latin goals.

Option 1: Charlotte Mason had students start Latin in Year 4.

For this progression we suggest:

Option 2: Classical curriculum often suggest starting Latin in Kindergarten. Finding a secular curriculum for young children, however is difficult.

Our best suggestion is a combination of School Song Latin and Minimus. Song School Latin is not completely secular, there is Christian content in the Christmas lessons, but it is the best thing we could find for those who want to start early.

Option 3: Starting in 7th grade, and using outside teaching resources frees up time for modern languages in the early years, and helps for hesitant Latin teachers.
