Tips for Homeschooling Preschool

Preschool learning involves a lot more than just teaching and planning activities for preschoolers at home. Here are our top ten tips on how to get started.

  • Providing consistency is very important in early childhood education. While your homeschool routine should be very relaxed, ensuring that toddlers know to expect activities at certain times of the day is key.
  • A homeschool PreK curriculum can be as involved or as simple as you want it to be. Some homeschool parents find that they need to plan out most every detail of their homeschool day or week, while other parents are fine with jotting down some general things they want to cover and letting the flow of the day dictate how they get lessons accomplished.
  • Homeschooled kids and homeschooling parents both benefit from regular outings with other families. Find out if your area has a local homeschool support group and get involved with field trips, play days and clubs they offer.
  • Resist the temptation to compare your homeschooling methods or your child’s progress with other homeschoolers. In fact, one of the biggest benefits of homeschooling is finding a learning path that is unique to your family.
  • Learning with preschool students happens everywhere and throughout the day: when spotting insects on walks, doing puzzles together on the floor, and reading books in the hammock.
  • Any focused academic time with your pre-kindergartner should be spread throughout the day. 15 minutes here and 15 minutes there on building specific skills is plenty at this age.
  • There’s never “too much” reading at this stage. Read-alouds and picture books should be integrated into your schedule every day. Nursery rhymes, songs, and fingerplays also build pre-reading skills.
  • Any activity, from setting the table to playing with playdough, that builds fine motor skills is also preparing your child for writing.
  • States do not usually have laws regarding homeschooling preschool, so this is a wonderful time to just have fun learning together.
  • While convenient, there is no reason that families have to have a dedicated “homeschool room.” Families living in smaller spaces often find that as long as they have a dedicated area of their home to store their supplies, they can learn equally well in any room or even outside!
