Ok, some of you know and/or may not know...that not only am I a homeschooling Mom to teens but I am also a childcare provider to a bunch of little squirts! And as a childcare provider, part of my job is to make sure that the kiddos that stay long enough in my care are ready for Kindergarten!
In order to do that, we basically have preschool activities that prepare them for Kindergarten!
We use Time 4 Learning PreK on a daily basis, we have hands on activities, we do flashcards, we have writing practice, we have reading, we play math games and we play some of the same Kindergarten games that schools do! We learn to wipe our bottoms, dress ourselves, learn to tie our shoes, sit quietly, eat politely and keep our hands to ourselves....just to name a few!
Most of the children in my care are more than ready to head off to school when they graduate!
I prepare them, the same way I prepared my boys for Kindergarten! As they attended public school for a few years before we became accidental homeschoolers in 2008.
