I bought the kindy package in 2008 and last year, I bought the 1st Grade package. For the price, you have large amount of matierial that is very freeing to choose what you want to use.
There is much improvement since 2007. Enki now includes a Start-Up Booklet

They also provide plenty of DVDs to show you how to implement the materials. There is also a NEW DVD to complement the Start-Up Booklet
, on how to implement the materials.
ALSO, there are sample schedules now being provided with the Enki curriculum.
The stories and movements are high quality material for the price.
There is a YaHOO Group site to help you implement the Enki curriculum. Also, Beth Sutton (the owner) has monthly calls for any questions you may have about using the materials AND any home life questions such as behavior problems with kids or how do I realistically implement everything or anything else in the home life.
