2020 PreK Curriculum Kit
(Free Ground Shipping on your entire order when you purchase 2020 PreK Curriculum Kit)
This program is designed for the three- or four-year-old who is eager to learn, but not truly ready to read. This year you will love helping your child develop essential pre-reading, early math, and thinking skills. He will discover the excitement of science, investigate emotional intelligence, and learn about grown-ups’ careers. With creative art, robust STEM learning, and many hands-on learning materials, this year will be a year packed with happy memories for both of you!
We asked parents who used our Pre-K Kit how long their student spent on "school." They estimated that they spend an average of 2 hours a day on their kit, or 2-10 hours 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!
Not sure 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.

I loved being able to customize exactly what I wanted for my sons kit!
We ordered this since pre-school was cancelled for the rest of the year due to Covid and the complete set was perfect to get us set up and running as soon as it arrived. My just turned 4 year old loves our school time every morning and has made amazing progress in just 3 weeks. The reading program especially is fantastic. As a Jewish family we were a little worried about the religious vs non-religious kits as I’m fairly certain religious actually means Christian not religious - but we have found the non-religious kit to be great and not contain anything that makes us uncomfortable. We’re very happy and would definitely recommend.
Oh, my word! This curriculum kit is just what we needed. In these crazy days of social distancing and while trying to make a decision about whether or not to start kindergarten in the fall, I purchased this pre-k kit and I am so glad I did! I purchased the basic kit as we already had several of the items included in the complete and elite kits. We are having so much FUN! My daughter loves Ziggy the zebra puppet. The All About Reading program really makes learning fun! She does not want to stop working in her Mathematical Reasoning book or the My First Activity Books. The Three Little Piggies game was a huge hit. She worked her way up to master level puzzles the day our box arrived. And the Think Play STEM Junior and BambinoLUK will be used again and again. We love the large, triangular colored pencils, the pencil sharpener and pencil case. Well done, Timberdoodle! Thank you!!!
We bought the PreK elite kit. It’s absolutely amazing! Saying ,Ziggy is a hit is an understatement. My daughter ADORES HIM! She begs to do school everyday. I bought this kit and the elite Kindergarten and we really love them both. We highly recommend these kits to anyone. Every subject is a lot of fun. I was expecting that All about Reading would be my daughters least favorite, but ziggy has made it her favorite. Even things she doesn’t want to do (like practicing letters) she will do to show Ziggy that she can. We love that we can reward her with more school. I’m very happy that Timberdoodle puts a strong emphasis on critical thinking skills. When so many others left that out. The mosaics are time consuming but easy , for the child and parents. She proudly shows off her work to everyone. Timberdoodle breaks everything down for you. I was VERY worried about scheduling, and figuring out how many pages of each subject. Well timberdoodle takes that problem off your plate too. The subject tell the teacher exactly what to do and gives you prompting questions to go deeper. We are truly happy with this curriculum and i suggest them to so many others. It’s fun to teach and fun to learn.
I ordered the preschool kit from timberdoodle last year and my daughter whizzed right through it. She was so excited to start her Pre-K kit and once again I am not disappointed. She asks me if we can do school every day because learning is so much fun for her. I love that I get to do it with her, it makes me feel happy and proud. I also love how everything is hands on and that there is material included for every subject. They add things to their kit that are important for the kids to learn that I personally wouldn’t have thought of myself, so timberdoodle is very helpful for me. I feel completely confident in this company and their curriculum. I love how you can customize their kits and create a flexible schedule. The handbooks timberdoodle provide help you to feel like you can do this as a parent, they help you get organized and help you understand what to expect. I probably sound like a spokesperson for this company as I boast about them every time schooling comes up, but I really am just a very happy parent. I’ll be sticking to timberdoodle again next year. I’m excited to see what they will have in store for my kids over the years!
