I used to be an anti-preschool homeschooling mom. That is, until my little Creed came along. He’s super busy and super smart, and seriously needs his day to be structured. That said, my philosophy of homeschooling preschool has NOT changed, and I wanted a curriculum that reflected that.
What is my philosophy for homeschooling preschool?
- Organic and natural
- A lot of open-ended play
- A lot of time outside
- A lot freedom to explore
- Very little seatwork
In my quest to find THAT kind of curriculum, I kept turning up empty-handed. Everything I ran across was super intense, more seatwork than I was willing to force my child to do, and WAY too much work for me as the teacher. And then one night as I was Googling once again trying to find something that would work for him, I ran across A Year of Playing Skillfully,(referred to as AYOPS from here out) and it was like a breath of fresh air! (You can get a free unit to check out before buying, so don’t forget to do that!)
