    This is an interesting topic. I am actually planning to send my kids to school starting with K-5. I never saw the benefit of preschool. I am even planning to use the public school system: 1. because private school isn’t available everywhere 2. because private school is expensive 3. because I have not the patience to teach young children.

I attended public school. I don’t think I’m a failure. Looking forward to the youtube links and Netflix links!

  3. This is such a great idea!! I have my kids going in to KinderPrep, but during the summer and even during school I like to have things for them to do at home. Thank you for assembling this list!

She has some amazing posts we will be share with you and I can’t wait for you to know more about her. This first resource from Aprille includes a list of resources for working with your preschooler at home. I understand the heart of where she is coming from. I love that she realizes and tells you up front that this list of preschool resources is for the very tired, non-creative, really busy mom. We can almost all relate … […]
