Home Preschooling Helps

I did 2 years of Home Preschool with my daughter and will be doing the same with my son. Babyzone has a good article about this choice.  The best tip I have is to stay on top of lesson plans and get your prep work done at least the weekend before.

If Home Preschooling isn't on your mind these links can be helpful in finding toddler and preschooler fun! This list of resources was compiled long ago but I try to keep it updated.
