As the parent of your child, the decision to send your child to preschool, homeschool preschool, or not do preschool at all is totally up to you. You know your child best. So, whatever decision you and your spouse make is yours and yours alone to make. The purpose of this show is not to shame anyone or try to convince anyone of what they should do. In fact, that’s one of the reasons we homeschool- for the freedom to choose what’s right for our children!

On today’s episode, Crystal shares her personal observations and opinions regarding preschool. With a background in child development, she sent her children to private and public preschools and preschooled at home. Although not all with one child!

Listen in to learn a brief history of preschool and kindergarten programs in the United States and how to determine if your child is ready for preschool. You will also learn easy and low-cost ways to teach your young child at home, even if your child isn’t ready for formal academics. Then, when your child is ready, Crystal shares two preschool programs that she’s used, as well as some low-cost alternatives available online or at the local discount store or bookstore.

If you’ve got an up-and-coming preschooler, don’t miss this episode!
