Homeschooling Your Preschool Child


Each child has unique interests and learning needs, not to mention attention spans. Therefore, if you are wondering whether homeschooling is suitable for your child or children, it is best to do an initial evaluation of what your preschool child’s needs are.

Several online resources provide lesson suggestions for preschoolers. You may find these materials very helpful. However, consider them only as a guide to give your child’s learning some direction. It is highly advised to be aware of the learners’ interests, be it an inclination to writing, sports, arts and crafts, or any other subject. You can then incorporate these interests into your list of “things that a home schooled child should know.”

For different age groups of children, you may need to employ different methods and techniques for homeschooling. And in order to know which methods and activities best suits your child under a specific age group, this short list may be of help.

Children of age 2 are found to be the most difficult. The child often gets bored and at times frustrated when being taught. Stimuli are needed in order to catch their interests. Children of this age group are most eager to learn, often walking around, and climbing steps. Common behaviors of this age include self-centeredness and possessiveness. Their sense of humor also develops. Do activities relating to these capabilities of the child.

Homeschooling a 3 year old is even more trying. At this point, the child is more physical in affection and in play. They don’t mind change, love having friends to play with, and they take verbal instructions very well. Use these to stimulate them to participate in learning activities. At this age, they are already capable of communicating their needs.

Children of age 4 are usually capable of working with scissors, hopping around on one foot or skipping. They start to learn to draw and possess a lot of physical energy. Let them try new things, as this will be their number one interest. They are very imaginative so give them an opportunity to develop and express this creativity.

Remember that all children grow at their own rate,

and in their own ways.

To achieve maximum benefits for the home schooled preschooler, you should trust your child’s own intuition of their momentary needs and wants and give them sufficient freedom to explore, inquire, and ultimately learn.

I invite you to take part in the Professional Home Educator Academy, which is an online based training program for parents who like to set up a successful home-school environment. I have been a homeschooling mum of three for many years now, and I have highly enjoyed every step of it.In the program I share not only my experience, but also easy to follow steps and strategies on how you can make homeschooling integrate into your own family setup.

9 Steps to a Successful Homeschool

Professional Home Educator Academy 3

6 years ago when I started looking into homeschooling my 3 children, I was overwhelmed what had been published about the subject online and offline. I found that under many un-useful tips and ideas the one’s I could actually use for our family, were only a handful and took me months to find, as there was and still is such an overload on information.

Profesional Home Educator Academy 1The today’s (23rd July 2014) list of results on Google were 4,540,000 with the search term ‘homeschooling’, when using other spelling methods and word  like ‘home-schooling’, ‘home education’ or ‘home-ed’ I gathered millions of more websites, articles and other information.

Since summer ’13, I offer parents and carers who experience similar overwhelming and confusing challenges a solution which will help to save time and money.

The below video is a recording from our last live webinar training, in which I go through all 9 steps to create a successful homeschool environment, which I hope will allow you to get started much easier.

If you head over to the Professional Home Educator Academy website, you will find another 5 Q&A training videos and you can sign up for the program, if you feel that this program is for you.
