As you look at your active three or four year old, you may be contemplating what step to take next. Should you put them in preschool? Try it out at home? The questions may be swirling through your mind making you wonder if you should homeschool preschool?
Homeschooling preschool is a great option for a lot of parents. And it just may be what you are looking for!
Homeschooling Preschool is great practice! If you have thought about homeschooling but are not sure if it is for you, then preschool is a great place to start! Preschool is a lot of fun, and working with your child at this age will give you an idea into whether or not you could educate your child at home long term.
Teaching Preschool is easy! The three and four year old range is the best age to teach (in my opinion). Lots of hands on activities make up learning shapes, alphabet and numbers. That and a lot of books (preschoolers LOVE books!).
Homeschooling Preschool gives you time! Keeping your child home an extra year gives them time to mature, and time to spend in a home environment. I don’t think this could ever be a bad thing! It also gives them time to be potty trained (if they are not yet), and to become more independent.
Homeschooling Preschool does not have to be permanent. I know a lot of families who have homeschooled preschool then sent their children to kindergarten. Homeschool does not have to be an all or nothing approach.
So, if you are thinking about homeschooling preschool keep these things in mind and do what you think will work best for you and your family!
