A FEW WORDS ABOUT US

Our Story
Donna homeschooled her four children and developed Canadian social studies programs to fill the void of Canadian content. After 27 years of continued development, research, and revisions you find great joy and ease in fulfilling the Canadian Social Studies portion of your teaching.

Donna Ward is the author of four Canadian history/geography curricula, which have been widely used across the country in public, private and home schools. Donna’s love for good Canadian literature sets the foundation to provide teachers with a wealth of resources. Her goal has been to introduce intriguing stories that will captivate even the most reluctant student. Donna holds a degree in Religious Education from Ontario Bible College (now Tyndale University and College) Toronto.

Donna chose the rewarding journey of home education and taught each of her four children through Grade 8. The lack of quality Canadian material and Donna’s love for historical stories inspired the development of a program for her own children. Subsequently, thorough research and reviews by experts culminated in her popular studies available today. Donna is also a motivational speaker at home educators’ conferences across the nation.

Along with a patriotism, Donna also has a love for the people of the world. She strongly supports her husband, Doug, who works with Compassion Canada, a Christian charity bringing the hope of Jesus, education, and family support to destitute children in developing countries.

The Wards reside in Woodstock, ON. They have four children who have completed post-graduate and professional studies, and eight grandchildren who love to read stories with Grandma.

TESTIMONIALS

Our happy customers
Sarah St. Pierre

Thank you so much for your excellent resources. I’m now in my third year of homeschooling my two children (now 8 and 10). I am happy that I found your resources the first year that I began teaching. I was surprised at how little Canadian material is out there for homeschooling. I skipped all in one (several subjects together) large American resources because I wanted Canadian content for my kids. This means I’ve had to source separate material for language arts (spelling, grammar and writing, and novel study), science, teaching French, music, math, art and social studies. It’s been worth it! One size does not fit all. In the last three years, we’ve use your Canada, My Country book and accompanying materials, Africa, Land of Hope and related books, Canada’s Natives Long Ago, and this year we are studying Courage and Conquest for an excellent Canadian history program. I love that you have so many books that complement your curriculum. I’m so happy with the curriculum and look forward to finding other gems from your shop!

Thank you so much for your help! We have really enjoyed your materials over the last 10 years of home schooling! Awesome, easy to follow lessons! We greatly appreciate the time and research you have placed into putting together your packages for us as parents and teachers.

Grace

THANK YOU for creating a very beautiful course of study! There is such a limited amount of homeschool curriculum that is strictly CANADIAN and I appreciate you doing that! Now, if only we could get wonderful curriculum written for Canadians in all other subjects.

Carla

I have been using Donna Ward’s books for years now and have never been disappointed. This term I began to use the Africa: A land of hope and have been once again blown away. Donna has laid everything out so beautifully, making my job so much easier. Her extra book suggestions are a highlight and always have my kids gripped. I would have never been exposed to these books otherwise. Thank you, Donna. I have also misplaced files in the past (Government curriculum), and Donna resent it to me with no questions asked – even though it was clearly my error. Again, thank you!

Jennifer Semper

As my two children work in their books~totally absorbed~I must take this moment to thank your for your outstanding work. Both children have delighted in every page. Needless to say, their response overflows onto me and all others who are near!
