What’s Better Than Preschool?
When parents began asking me what curriculum they should buy for their almost two-year-old, I began to ask why. From parents I learned that even parents who intended to homeschool were considering out-of-home preschool so their little one would get a good foundation for their education. Parents worry they will somehow ruin their child’s future by not having early academics, either out-of-home or in-home.
Here at Better Than Preschool, we’ll explore together the ways and means to teach your little one without the burden of formal academics. We’ll also be cheerleaders for all of you able parents who want to spend the precious early years with your child.
