A step-by-step, thoughtful, and wholesome curriculum for 3-5 year olds.
The preschool years matter. A lot.
Did you know that 90% of a child's brain growth happens before age 6?
It's no wonder early experiences have a lasting impact on a child's learning, behavior, and health. No pressure, right!?
As a teacher and homeschooling mama, let me be the first to tell you: It doesn't have to be hard.
"One thing I love is that the activities give options for expansion and leave room for creativity. I also feel guided because you've included so much of the rationale in the short explanations of the activities. I feel very equipped as a parent and I'm learning so much!"
"I feel very equipped as a parent."

"As a FYI It's been a few months since I ordered Play into Kindergarten Readiness and my son has improved drastically!
His confidence is back, when we take walks he automatically looks for shapes and numbers, setting the table is his favorite and his scissor skills are unbelievable lol.
I am so thankful for your courses, the idea that I have a plan for him every day is just comforting.
I will start Kindergarten at Home in a few months when he has mastered Kindergarten Readiness. I am just so thrilled that he is motivated again to learn, even though he doesn't know he is learning, it's brilliant!"

You will learn all about phonological skills in Play into Kindergarten Readiness! Phonological skills actually have nothing to do with the letters in the alphabet, but they are essential for building a strong foundation for reading. Phonological awareness focuses on auditory skills, hearing the relationship between words—the rhymes, the sounds, the syllables, etc. Did you know that a child’s ability to rhyme in Kindergarten is a direct predictor of his or her reading success in grade one? It’s true! Rhyming is the first of seven phonological skills that your little one will master with Play into Kindergarten Readiness.
Generally, children are ready to begin Play into Kindergarten Readiness when they are two or three years old. A few signs to look for to know whether your child is ready: your child can focus and concentrate on an interesting activity for 5 minutes, your child is able to answer simple questions (e.g. "What colour do you like best?" or "Would you like to wear your striped t-shirt or your polka dot t-shirt today?"), and your child enjoys playing!
