"The Mulberry Planner has made my home education journey so much simpler, and so far, flow much more smoothly. There are just so many good things to say about this planner! [It] ticks the boxes for learning records for my son, myself AND the authorities. And it’s all in one neat, gorgeous space. I found documenting the planning really overwhelming at the beginning. [We're] two and a half years in now, and it’s definitely a joy, not a labour."

"I am loving this planner because it’s so customisable... there’s something for every type of homeschooler or unschooler. We unschool, so the pages for lesson plans aren’t for me but I don’t have to have them! I simply don’t print those pages and print extra of what I need. Plus I can order things in whatever way makes sense to me! ... If you’ve been wanting a bit more organisation with note taking I really recommend this planner! You can totally make it exactly what YOU need."

This is the perfect addition to your homeschool, whether it's your first year (congratulations!) or you've been homeschooling for a decade!

Less time worrying about the paperwork, more time spent with your kids (you know, the whole reason you got into this thing)!

"I'm getting a head start on next year's planning and I feel so organised with the lesson plan outlines in The Mulberry Planner. The hardest part for me has been choosing which of the gorgeous cover sheets I want to use! There is just so much choice and I can really make this planner my own. My son loves having his own record keeping pages to use too."

"...We're now onto our fourth year of homeschooling... there's an evolving nature to it so I've used the pages that immediately spoke to me in terms of how the rhythm of our days go. I like to use the blank Morning Circle templates and customise them for myself. I've definitely used the Mama's book list - love that [the planner] has stuff for mums, not just kids."

"Setting out my planner I put the vision, snapshot of our family, yearly calendar, and lists at the beginning. Next is monthly calendars applicable for the current term. From there I set out week by week starting with notes, then lesson plans, morning circle, records of learning, reflections and notes. I add the nature finds, notes and quotes wherever I feel I want or need them."

"Here's how I use my planner... It is my diary, planner and journal all-in-one. At the close of each school week, I prep my following week on the ‘plan’, and tabled ‘record of learning’ pages. I store that week’s pages on my clipboard - which sits out, readily available. As we learn, I document our journey on the daily ‘record of learning’ and ‘reflection + notes’ pages. I transfer the weekly pages back into my Term folder once complete, and begin a new week. It’s so easy!"

"I was very happy to see the new Mulberry Planner has LOTS of list templates, and I’ve been busy filling them out and feeling virtuous about my gorgeous new lists (as opposed to the creased and crumpled bits of repurposed paper I usually use). I keep a book journal for myself, but I’m using the Mama’s Book List to keep track of the homeschooling-specific books I’d like to read or re-read. Having a curriculum list means I can keep track of what we’d like to try, what’s good now, what may be good in the future, and what’s not good for us at all. I’ll download and use each sample as we need it, and then either cross it off the list or purchase it."

"I love the beauty and functionality of my Mulberry Planner! It's easy to personalize to my family and homeschool needs. I simply print the pages I need to for lesson planning and record keeping. Such a simple and lovely way to help us stay organized!"


Printing and displaying: Best Practices
  • You will receive files as high res digital PDF files, which means you can download and print as many pages as you want, as many times as you want! 
  • These files are sized US Letter & A4.
  • Files should be downloaded and opened on a desktop computer or laptop.Don't try and print from your mobile or tablet.
  • For best results, print from a PDF reader (like Adobe Acrobat) rather than direct from your Chrome or Safari browser. Do not print from Mac Preview app, as that is an image viewer. You can download Adobe PDF viewer for free. Some of the PDF rendering doesn't work properly for some printers when printing directly from a browser window.
  • All pages are aligned so there is margin room on the left for hole punching and ring binder display.
  • The files are high resolution PDFs designed for all printers, home and professional, though we recommend professional printing for best quality.
  • Once you purchase, we give you a step-by-step walkthrough and handy printing checklist to help you get started printing off and using your beautiful planner!
Designed for flexibility

We've designed this planner for ultimate flexibility, because we know that every family's needs are different. For example, many pages have multiple layout options, and are open-ended to suit ages 4-18. I've designed 200 pages this year, but you definitely DON'T have to print every page! Once you've downloaded, simply look at each file and decide which recording and planning pages you'll use, and which cover and section dividers you prefer. Then build your own planner by mixing and matching! If your needs change throughout the year, your planner can change too!

For unschoolers too!

We get a lot of unschoolers asking whether this planner is suitable for unschooling. It's a great question... We have it on good authority that our planner suits unschoolers too! (See what they had to say about the planner here.) Why? While you may not use the lesson plan or weekly schedule template, there are 100+ pages that will help you record your children's self-directed learning. 

A simple digital download

The Mulberry Planner comes as a set of DIGITAL FILES for you to download and print. It's a full set of 200 gorgeously designed pages, templates, printables, lists and calendars - basically it's your whole homeschool year... SORTED!

Have questions? Read the FAQs.

Can I print this planner at home?

Professional printing recommended: The planner comes in a series of high quality PDF files which can be printed on standard home printers, however for the best visual results and quality we would recommend printing at your local office supply or printer store eg. Officeworks or Staples. This is quite cost effective as industrial printers are more ink efficient when printing in bulk, and can therefore be cheaper than buying a cartridge to print at home. You can also get it spiral bound at most professional printers, once you've organised the order of your pages, or present in a display folder or arch-lever folder.

Everyday printing at home: That being said, our multi-print pages (like the weekly learning records & notes pages) are mostly black & white, so you can print them with ease on your home printer, as you need them. 

Do I need to print every page?

Not at all! The idea of creating a downloadable, print-on-demand planner is that you can pick and choose the templates that work for you. There are 14 cover options for example, so choose your favourite and just print that. Or choose two and give your planner a fresh look halfway through the year. The choice is truly yours... Don't do morning circles? Don't print it. Do lots of reading? Print extras. Got multiple kids? Use a different template for each student. For everything else, use the blank templates and truly customise our layout.
Oh, the possibilities! 

We want the Mulberry Planner to be a resource you can adapt to your homeschool journey. Make it work for you!

Is this planner suitable for school ages 4-18?

The planner is designed to track students learning, whether planned lessons or incidental 'life' learning. The planner pages are designed to be flexible and open-ended, and can suit all grades of schooling, ages 4-18. We haven't designed it with a specific age range in mind, but if there are pages you think would be beneficial for older students, please let us know and we'll add them in!

Do you deliver physical planners?

No, these planners are not printed, they are a digital download which you will get access to after purchase to download as PDFs and print. This is clear on our site, and refunds will not be given for accidental purchase.

A print-your-own planner allows you to add/remove pages as and when you need them and also lets you to customise to your liking in terms of both covers and pages.

Can I print it all in black + white?

We designed the 2019 planner planner mostly black and white, but received feedback that people preferred the colourful floral designs, especially for key title pages, to give their planner bold splashes of colour. This year, we've gone even more bold with our colourful design! In the 2021-22 planner the title cover pages, calendars, quote posters and most section dividers have a colour heavy design, however many of the other 'everyday, multi-print' pages are designed B&W, with minimal colour floral embellishments so that there's a small pop of colour when you print.

When will I receive the digital files?

Straight after purchasing, you'll be directed to the links to download the planner. You can also access these links any time from the purchase receipt, sent to the email provided on checkout. 

I'm in the Southern Hemisphere, can I use this planner?

We have a 2021 Southern Hemisphere planner suited to the Jan-Dec school year that may suit you better. It's identical to this one, the only difference is the calendars and dates.

Are these templates A4 or US letter?

We are now offering the Northern Hemisphere planner in US Letter & A4 size, to account for our North American and European friends.

Why is this planner sold in USD.

This product is sold in USD, as a vast majority of our Northern Hemisphere customers reside in North America.

I can't see the pages in detail on your website.

Can I get a refund?

Unfortunately, due to the nature of digital online products we do not have a refund allowance on our digital products because you are purchasing access to a link that delivers the product to you. We can't return a digital product when you've already got access to it so therefore we can't do refunds. If you believe you have extenuating circumstances, you can contact us.

I want a customised cover page, do you offer that?

At this time, we are no longer offering customised cover pages. We apologise for the inconvenience, but we have added more blank templates for you to choose from!

I have another question about the planner.
