Preschool at Home

Find many resources for teaching this special age.

Teaching an Age of Wonder

You don’t need a curriculum in order to preschool at home. Whether teaching colors or counting, matching or shapes, measuring or math. At this age, it’s all play, and you can “teach” as you count the grocery items in your cart, bake cookies together, sort socks in the laundry, or go for walk in the garden. You may want a guide, though, and we offer here activities, resources, and skills that will help prepare your children for kindergarten.
