You can definitely teach your preschooler at home for free, you don’t need a full pre-packaged curriculum if your budget doesn’t allow for it. There are some great free preschool resources that you can find online, that a library card you can be set for the year. I love the library, our local library is small but is a part of a larger branch that we can order books from which is awesome. I was able to find all of the easy readers and Bob Books from them so that I didn’t have to spend any money on it.
If the library doesn’t have something that you are looking for you can always put in a request for an interlibrary loan or ask them to purchase.
These are my favorite preschool sites for activities, printables and preschool ideas.
See my giant list of free preschool printables with over 60 printable worksheets for your preschooler.
- Letter of the Week – preschool curriculum
- Wee Folk Art – art curriculum
- First-School – preschool activities and crafts
- Hubbard’s Cupboard – awesome list of activities for preschoolers
- Starfall – I have paid for the premium membership for the added activities and found that it was worth it while my child was in the preschool age. I did not renew it another year because I felt that he was outgrowing it. He did enjoy it a lot during the time we had it though.
- PBS kids
- TVO kids – age 2-5
I don’t believe that learning from a curriculum has to take place during the preschool years. There are a lot of awesome homeschooling bloggers who blog about their daily activities and who offer a lot of free activities or ideas that you can use in your preschool as well.
