Teaching Preschool at Home FREE
It doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg to homeschool! Preschool doesn’t haven’t to cost anything. You can start a free home-based learning environment for your children with tools you already have at home. Really, preschool is just an extension of what you are already doing.
You really don’t need a curriculum (though there is no shortage of them available), but if you do like structure, be sure to find a play-based curriculum.
You can get GREAT ideas on Pinterest, and the HEAV Homeschool Living posts are chock-full of ideas and information all ages of homeschool, preschool included.

Engage with your child and enjoy this time. Pretty much anything you do with your child is a learning experience! Avoid screentime and get outside. Don’t feel like you need to entertain them all day, either–their imagination is more than enough to keep them busy!
