It makes sense to start learning at home early with tot school and home preschool since we plan to homeschool. What should we do?
I am a big believer in encouraging children to develop their bodies during the early years. They should be learning to move their muscles and refine their senses, not stuck in their heads with too much mental work too early.
I get my ideas from Maria Montessori, Rudolf Steiner, Charlotte Mason, and lots of research and studies on the importance of play!
So you won't find a lot of preschool worksheets here. Playing is learning.
Here are some ideas for stimulating the very young, like toddlers ages 18 months to 3 years, but that's a guideline, not a rule.
Here are some ideas for doing a little more with kids ready to learn, but not ready for academics.
I will continue to add advice from our adventures with kindergarten and more structured learning, so please check back often.
