Homeschooling for Preschool

Your guide to the best curriculums and learning activities for preschoolers!

What Does Homeschooling Look Like in Preschool?

Creating a homeschool environment for preschool involves a lot of creative play and hands-on learning.

Since you are in charge, you can decide how much time you want to set aside each day for learning and how structured you want to be.

Some kids thrive with more structure, but studies show all kids at the preschool age learn best through creative play.

Having an adaptable preschool program is something to consider so it can be tailored to your individual child’s learning style.

Preschool Homeschool Supplies

Unless you are planning to create your own preschool homeschool curriculum, we recommend deciding on a curriculum. Preschool home school supplies range from lesson plan guides, to literature packs, activity kits, flash cards, and other supplemental resources that homeschool curriculum companies provide.

Of course, there are the traditional school supplies like crayons, glue sticks, age-appropriate scissors, washable markers and paint, puppets, and even dice for counting.

If you are on a budget, yard sales and discount stores are a great way to get preschool homeschool supplies like learning games and art supplies to go along with your ready-to-go lesson plans.

Preschool Homeschool Activity Ideas

Activity workbooks, coloring books, recipes, and picture story books are great additions to a preschool homeschool environment.

Many companies like Abeka, Little Hands to Heaven, and Timberdoodle Preschool have innovative ways to teach preschool age children and include clever activities to capture the attention of preschool students.
