1. WinterPromise: This is what we are using for 2016/2017 year this year, and it pretty much makes all the other preschool curriculums we have tried pale in comparison. I LOVE this program, it covers all your subjects, it is open and go, it is Charlotte Mason inspired (which means lots of hands on and fun, no busywork), it has a weekly planner that you just open and can see what you need to do for the week, the resources are incredible quality, we are blown away!

Horizons preschool curriculum is designed and published by Alpha Omega Publishing. It is a Christian based curriculum and available in a number of different formats. They have a complete curriculum for 3 year olds as well as typical preschool age (4 year olds). They also have multimedia DVD’s to accompany the program, though those are expensive and not necessary to the program if you are on a budget. The program itself is set up with daily worksheets. If you have a little keener on your hands who loves to color and cut and work, this program will work awesome for you!

All About Reading is a reading program for kids and it is phenomenal! It is secular in that it is a neutral program, without any religious focus. It works with all learning styles (especially kinesthetic, hands on learners!). The pre reading program is designed for preschoolers and kindergarteners and is available in the basic package or deluxe. The deluxe comes with reading cards, teachers manual, student activity book, a plush puppet, books, and more! The program is so simple, fun and engaging that your preschooler, no matter how they like to learn, will LOVE IT! I have done this program with 3 very different kids (an audio learner, visual and VERY fidgety kinesthetic) and all three of them thrived with it. The lessons are short and manageable for short attention spans. Click on the image or CLICK HERE for more details.
A Beka is a Christian based curriculum and is available from 2 years old all the way up. They have a phenomenal Bible program with large picture flashcards and coloring books that go along with them, etc. They are generally fairly affordable and you can get the separate workbooks for $10-$12 and up. They have comprehensive teachers guides, though they really aren’t necessary at this young age. Their art books are my all time fav! The projects are easy to do with what you have on hand, they are organized by season of the year so you just go through the book in order and they are low prep, low mess 😉 A Beka is very traditional in their homeschool style, meaning workbooks workbooks workbooks. Again, this works really well if you have a little 3 year old that wants their own school book. But if they don’t like listening to instructions, sitting still, don’t enjoy coloring, this may not be the program for you.

|Child Art for 3s, Second Edition $10.95By A Beka Book
Children will have fun learning basic preschool concepts in this enjoyable art book. Designed for three-year-olds, kids will learn colors and shapes and how to follow directions; projects also develop eye-hand coordination. The pictures have been drawn with wide, colorful lines and a simple style especially with the preschooler in mind. Poems have been included on some pages to make learning more fun. Nursery-designed for three-year-olds.
Sonlight is another Christian based preschool curriculum but it is also literature based. Imagine snuggling on the couch with your little one reading books together and you have captured the dream of Sonlight. I personally found it a bit challenging with my kids because they have a hard time sitting still and listening to books, especially if there aren’t engaging pictures the whole way through at that age. For more on my experience with Sonlight and why it didn’t work for our family CLICK HERE. But it does work fantastic for some people, especially if you only have one or two kids and they are more of auditory learners. They have a number of different packages available or you can purchase the books separately. They have preschool and PreK available, though they are a bit advanced so I recommend really checking out the program to see which would work the best for your child. The full preschool kit is

If you have a really young preschooler (2 or 3) they would possibly have trouble with working a mouse or figuring out how to use the program but a mature 3 or 4 year old could do this program easily and would love it! “The Time4Learning preschool program combines technology, animated characters, original stories and fun music to inspire a love of learning in the littlest e-learners. Ed Mouse and his friends guide children through more than forty topics such as numbers, letters, rhymes, self, time, music and colors.”

Before Five in a Row is a secular literature based preschool curriculum. It takes some of the more popular titles in preschool books and creates a comprehensive unit-study type approach to learning through reading these books. It is great for auditory learners or cuddly little ones, it is low pressure if your child has high expectations for themselves. It can be a great introduction to “school” without the pressure of doing an actual curriculum. The books are all available at your local library and the teachers book is $35. You can also purchase most of the books in the literature package for an additional $96.75, but again, the books are generally available at the library for no cost. It is a great way to start off without breaking the bank! For more information, CLICK HERE or on the image below.
On a tight budget? God’s Little Explorers is a Christian preschool curriculum for just $17! It is a digital download and you would print off what you need. It is a 28 week long program that takes about 30-45 minutes a day. She teaches the lowercase letters each week in order to help facilitate reading skills (many preschool curriculums only use uppercase and yet early readers are all in lowercase, it can be a huge problem!). It’s mostly a hands-free, active program which is perfect for those short attention spans! Click here to view more details or on the image below.
