The Good and The Beautiful
Grades/subjects I've used:
Level K - Level 3 math and language arts
Pros: Open-and-go low prep format, easy website, affordable, emphasis on art, Christian-friendly
Cons: Some have complained that each lesson offers too much busywork and, while I tend to agree with that complaint, we would just skip over busywork frequently and thus it wasn't an issue for us. Mormon author; I really liked this curriculum but couldn't continue with it knowing the author's religious background was not congruent with ours.

Master Books
Grades/subjects I've used: we will be using Level 2, Level K, and Preschool in Fall 2020
Pros: Overtly Christian faith based, open-and-go low prep format, easy website, affordable, emphasis on Christian apologetics
Cons: Some parents have voiced concerned that the curriculum is "too simple" or "not rigorous enough", and those concerns have been met with assurance that the curriculum is rooted in the Charlotte Mason approach and is, in fact, quite "enough".

Other popular options (presented without commentary as I have no personal experience with them):
My Father's World
Five In A Row
Rod and Staff
BJU Press
Gather Round
