A Canadian family talks about their eclectic approach to unschooling that begins to mix in a bit of structure starting around the age of 5.  They discuss how adding the structure, in their opinion, doesn't negate the beneficial effects of unschooling.

Around the age of 5 I add structure to my children’s learning. This doesn’t prevent unschooling because unschooling is not something that is done for a few hours each day. It is a lifestyle. It is about providing the child with access to educational materials and toys. It is about entering in discussions and conversations to stimulate learning. It is a lifestyle of learning.
