1. This is so awesome and perfectly timed for me. We recently moved and can’t find a preschool for my 3 year old for the Fall (they’re all full). I love teaching her at home but also want her to have the social interaction with other kids.

      I wanted the same thing with my son since he is the oldest of our children and our daughter is only 10 months old. I did homeschool preschool with him last year and sent him to the public school preschool this year so he could have the peer interaction and learn the social things I couldn’t possibly teach at home. Next year, he’ll go to kindergarten well prepared with everything he needs in the classroom!

  2. I really believe in having a structured day with toddlers. I like the idea of a schedule based on preschool activities for kindergarten prep. I can definitely use some of these ideas with my four year old.

      I’m so glad they’ll be helpful! My son loved his structured day (and I love having a structured day also!)

  3. I love the idea about talking about the author and illustrator. I’ve just been skipping over that info. I think I will start talking about it with my son.

      I usually did skip over that stuff during bedtime reading books, but now that he has a grasp on both of them, I’ll ask him! I would have never done it had I not worked in a preschool before I had kids!

  4. This is awesome! The only preschools in my area cost a pretty penny, even for just part-time. I will definitely consider the idea of “home-schooling” for preschool =) Thanks for this post.

      It really is ridiculous how much some preschools charge! This was a perfect solution for my family and I’ll do the same once my daughter gets to the age of preschool! Thanks for reading!

    Gym and outside time is so important! Children need the opportunity to be in a space where they can practice there gross motor skills and burn some energy!

    • simplelistssimplelife@gmail.com

      Agreed completely! It’s a great time for both parent and child to interact outside and be active together!

  6. Great input. My kids attends KG and early childhood but are free during the summer. I am not a homeschooler but would like to foster a good schedule for them this summer. This a great starting point!

  7. These are such great ideas! And kids really thrive on schedule and routine–at least mine did. I do love the relaxed flexibility aspect too, though. Love these suggestions!

  8. Great list! As a childcare provider, you are spot on, and I love your concise and simple manner of explaining things. We LOVE abc mouse!

    I have a 2 year old granddaughter. I am going to share this info with my daughter for her. Such good information thank you so much

      Thank you for reading it! I’m so glad you liked it! I’m sorry about the schedule not working! I wonder if a pop-up blocker could have been blocking it? I emailed it to you instead!
