We asked parents who used our Kindergarten Kit how long their student spent on "school." They estimated that they spent an average of 1-3 hours a day on their kit, on 4-5 days a week. You’ll be able to plan yours to work best for you with your access to the online Timberdoodle Scheduler, included with your kit. Make sure you allow yourself and your child some time to find your own rhythm!

When my husband and I set out to homeschool our kindergartner, we were full of motivation but lacked a clear sense of how to actually do it. Neither of us were homeschooled nor knew anyone who was, and family members urged us to send our son to public school. Timberdoodle alleviated our concerns about our capability to homeschool not only by providing superb quality learning materials, but also through the handbook included in the kit and the online scheduler. The FAQs and articles explaining each product and why it was chosen assuaged all doubt about whether homeschooling was the right choice for us. With Timberdoodle’s decades of experience and high standards of excellence for each product, we were no longer pioneers wandering into unfamiliar, intimidating territory. We were well equipped for the endeavor, and both made confident and enthusiastic about our decision. Kindergarten went so well, we agreed to homeschool our son for First Grade, of course using Timberdoodle’s kit. The ability to customize each kit is excellent for diverse budgets and allows people to buy only what they need or plan to use. We cannot say enough good about Timberdoodle. So glad we found the company! We first heard of them on a YouTube review of the curriculum. Thank You for everything, Timberdoodle!
I love the ease of using the customizer, both to make the daily checklist and to use it while teaching. It’s a great feature.
Absolutely loving Timberdoodle so far! I have the PreK and kindergarten kit. We are extremely happy with this curriculum. My daughter begs to do school everyday. They took all the stress of scheduling off my plate. I love that I can reward my daughter when she does something she’d prefer not to, (like writing) with more school activities. I’ve recommended this curriculum to everyone I know who wants to Homeschool. I have tried very hard to foster the love of learning with my child, and this curriculum just furthers that. This makes school so much fun for both of us. She loves learning it, and I love teaching it. They break down exactly what the teacher and child need to do. Taking all the guess work out of it, while still allowing the freedom of going deeper into the subject of interest. Along with giving you questions to ask that you might not have thought of. The only thing I wish their were more of is art. But I can easily supplement that with all the other things I have. I also realize not every family puts such a strong emphasis on art so I still give It 5 stars. If all the other kits are as amazing as this one we will be teaching timberdoodle for life!
When my son and I opened the boxes upon delivery we were super excited . My son 4.5 years old could not wait to play and start his lessons. Literally that evening he began playing with some of the educational games . The online scheduling tool WAS THE BEST. Weve made adjustments as we move along but it definitely is my go to every day to record and plan ahead for the days lessons. Every single book, manual and resource is of the best quality, and honestly has made this journey of homeschooling exciting, effortless and something we look forward to everyday. THANK YOU TIMBERDOODLE FAMILY, we look forward to every annual "box day" . From our family to yours 💗
I love that I was able to customize the curriculum. It is super convenient to have a layout of everything you need, so you know you are getting a well rounded curriculum, and the ability to add in items or take out things that wouldn't suit your student.
For example, my child is an advanced reader as well as advanced at math, so I was able to get rid of phonics material, which she didn't need, and get a higher level of math.
I also love that Timberdoodle supports types of learning beyond text books and dittos. We have discovered so many new ways of teaching our children.
Also, their customer service is absolutely top notch.
I will absolutely be using Timberdoodle for all of our homeschool needs.
