Grade Three Program

Grade Three Program Release to Begin April 2026

The Enki Program for Grades One to Three are in the pipeline for distribution and we plan to release one grade level at a time each year, over the next three years. These will run on the Enki Program Subscription Model..

Since the Grades One, Two, and Three Programs are currently going through the shift to our new digital subscription model, so we can share the specifics with you and provide a chance to look into the future! Have a look below.

Each program is very thorough and is designed to support the teacher, whether at home or in the classroom,  in bringing an enriched, arts-integrated, global studies curriculum to a wide range of children.

If your child has a significant special need, you may need program contents adjusted or expanded. We have had many children with significant challenges thrive in Enki and we encourage you to read the website section on our approach to meeting special needs, and if it seems like a good fit,  to make a pre-purchase appointment to see what is possible within the Enki program.

Third Grade Materials

The third grader becomes acutely aware of the importance of community to independent life on earth. Therefore, the theme for this grade is tribal life. To this end, our materials include two, 4-month long epics: Ancient Israel, and the Haudenosaunee (Iroquois). The bulk of our math and science work all comes out of the tribal life in each of these cultures. More on Grade Three here.

Foundation Guides Books I

In this book the underlying worldview and outlook that lies at the core of Enki are explored. The overview offered here lays the foundation for all that will come throughout Enki and we offer descriptions of how this manifests in the day to day experience of the children..

Foundation Guides Books II & III

In this book we delve into the underlying worldview and outlook that were introduced in Book I.  Each topic is taken up at deeper and deeper levels so that readers can explore at whatever level serves their needs. The deepening understanding offered here gives the teachers – whether at home or in the classroom – a keel to steady their course and keep focused on serving the child(ren)’s wellbeing as they adapt plans and materials to best meet their unique situation.

Teacher’s Workbook

This is a short, printable pdf for you to work with to find how best to apply the insights and materials Enki offers to serve YOUR unique situation. Because Enki works deeply with the patterns natural to living and learning, the principles explored can - and must be - be applied different ways in different situations. In this booklet, we guide you through the process of adapting the materials methods so that you have a program that will serve your world and yet still draws on the wisdom and coherence of Enki.

 

Grade Three Teaching Guides

This book offers an in-depth look at the Enki philosophy and how that unfolds in the daily life of the third grader. This book takes the underlying philosophy and applies it in detail to teaching the third grader, specifically to the rhythms, environment, and activities of each day. In Grade Three we begin work with a theme Studies approach so an overview of this method is included in the Grade Three Teaching Guide.

Enki Guidance Calls

This is a chance to meet with a senior faculty member and others working with Enki to explore the philosophy and pedagogy and, most importantly to receive and give support for the lively process of adapting Enki methods to meet your child(ren) and the realities of your life. Included are:

  • 6 LIVE Q and A calls over the course of the year. These are for you to discuss you particular questions and challenges with others working with Enki and with a senior faculty member, and for you to share your insights and creativity with others. Details on Membership page.

If your child has a need that is not readily met by the program and materials, you may need program contents adjusted or expanded. If so, we encourage you to begin by  reading the website section on our approach to meeting special needs and then, if that view is in alignment with your outlook,  please make an appointment to see what is possible within the Enki program.

Base Commitment:

Enki was developed because of our commitment to social justice, including seeing that all who want Enki, are able to have it. To that end, we operate on a sliding scale basis, starting at the top market tuition and offering needs-based reductions from there.

As well, Enki is committed to contributing to the cause of human and environmental justice. Historically we have donated a portion of profits to diverse nonprofits committed to these causes. However, at this time we are joining efforts to dismantle systemic racism and so, we will donate a total of $50 from each subscription sold to a combination of Color of Change and Indigenous American Justice groups.

Return policy

You have a grace period to decide if Enki is a good fit for your family. If you let us know that you wish to return the Enki program within 30 days from purchase you are refunded the subscription fee minus a $125 administrative and intro materials fee. You may keep the Starting Up Booklet and small selection of audio files—feel free to share or pass along.
