Welcome to the Home Preschool Jump Start main page. Home Preschool Jump Start is a fast-paced series designed to help you save time and get started teaching preschool at home in 5 days.
Who is Home Preschool Jump Start For?
This training is designed for those who want to get started with home preschool quickly and don’t have time to work through The Guide to Getting Started with Home Preschool right now. To speed up the planning process we’ve pulled out the key essentials from The Guide and compiled them into a five-day challenge for you. However, we do recommend that you work through The Guide at some point in the future to help fine tune additional elements of your home preschool plan.
Topics We’ll Cover in Home Preschool Jump Start:
- Finding time in your day for home preschool, including a step-by-step guide to mapping out a weekly calendar that works for you
- Creating a home preschool routine that you and your kids love, including information about what to include in a home preschool routine and sample routines
- Selecting a printable lesson plan format that meets your needs, with multiple options for you to choose from
- Choosing meaningful, playful home preschool activities that don’t require a lot of preparation, along with over 125 low-prep activity ideas for the most common preschool learning goals
- Lesson planning ideas and completed lesson plan templates for four weeks of home preschool that you can either print and use as is or adapt for your own personal preferences
We recommend setting aside five days on your calendar to work through this series. Each day includes some planning tasks, recommended reading, and printables to help you achieve the daily goals.
