-- Committing twelve or more years of one's life to homeschooling often sounds overwhelming and daunting to someone considering the switch from public school. Even with the educational stresses families face due to recently imposed mandates, the thought of taking on the total weight of their children's education seems a lot for some to bear. Although preschool is an option in many government schools, it is not required to send your child to preschool in the United States. "Preschool is an opportune time to experiment with homeschooling,"
suggests Gena Suarez, publisher of The Old Schoolhouse® Magazine
. "This is the perfect time to test the waters to see if homeschooling is a good fit for your family."
Knowing that parents want to ensure that their children receive a proper education, many homeschool curriculum companies provide a scope and sequence. This resource provides parents with a list of what a child should learn in a given grade level. SchoolhouseTeachers.com, the curriculum division of The Old Schoolhouse®
, provides such information to its members. Parents of preschoolers are equipped with the information necessary to begin their child's education with confidence. A list of what is needed in language arts, math, science, social studies, motor skills, and more is available to parents home educating their preschoolers. Not only does this list take the guesswork out of homeschooling preschoolers, but membership provides courses and activities that line up with the general scope and sequence required for this age. Parents are invited to provide their children with a safe, quality Christian education from the comfort of their own homes.
Preschoolers are also welcome to join the virtual storytime and show-and-tell gatherings, a unique offering for those homeschooling with SchoolhouseTeachers.com. Parents wondering whether homeschooling is for them can try it out with complete confidence knowing that they have the support and resources to get started.
