"How do I know where to start?"
If you're unsure if your 3-year-old is best suited for Preschool or PreK, or your 4-year-old is ready for PreK or Kindergarten, you can have your child take our Early Education Placement Test.
"How much time does this take?"
We asked parents who used our Preschool Kit how long they spent using these tools with their child. Nearly all estimated that they spent less than 2 hours a day on "school time," or 2-10 hours a week.
Younger students will almost never sit down and do all the work at once. Instead we suggest doing it in multiple short sessions throughout the day.
“Does the Preschool kit last two years?”
It depends on the child. Some children are motivated to learn and will be ready to move on at the end of the year. Other children enjoy a slower pace and can enjoy the materials and learn from the materials in the preschool kit for two years or more.
“How can I check to see if my preschooler is developing normally?”
We have found the free Early Intervention Assessment sponsored by Easter Seals to be very helpful to help track development.
