Quite honestly, I don't understand when people say Enki is so difficult to implement. You establish your family rhythm, and you work in 3 45-min days per week of "school work", and everything you need is right at your fingertips. Ideally you use the same story/songs/circle for several weeks in a row, so it's not like you have to sit down and plan extensively every week. You don't have to go searching around for materials - everything is there. There are suggestions on how to structure your lesson blocks, and CDs and DVDs of all the songs/verses/fingerplays so that you *know* you are doing them "right".
Enki kindergarten is not $700, it is $500 - and that is including the Foundations Guides that will carry you right through each year, which are some of the most comprehensive, in-depth guides I've seen yet (much more so than Christopherus!) After purchasing the kindergarten curriculum you are entitled to telephone conferences, discussion groups, consultations, etc. and you receive a discount off your next year's curriculum.
