With creative art, systematic thinking skills, robust STEM construction, and astonishing science experiments, this year will be a year packed with happy memories for both of you!
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!

This is our first year homeschooling and I absolutely LOVE this curriculum. It has made planning and teaching easy! We will buying the 1st grade program next year!
This is our first year homeschooling, I had so many emotions starting. I was excited, ready for adventure, a little unsure, nervous it would be too much and I just wouldn’t understand how to start my days off. But I knew homeschooling my daughter was the best and only option were were open to. I did it, I clicked buy. Our curriculum came in a just a few weeks later. My daughter was so excited to start, she counted down the days until were started - as did I, but I was a bit more nervous. I used the chat option that timberdoodle offers a few times. They were kind and so helpful. They helped me with my biggest fear, making our schedule. I am using the generated schedule which gives my daughter usually 11 of the 12 subjects five days a week. We’re a big fan of the developing early learning workbooks. There is little prep to getting all of her subjects ready for the day, my daughter likes to help get her books ready. I love that everything is so hands on and keeps her thinking. At this age they need to be involved in their work, not just handed a worksheet. Her favorite subject is math right now. Math U-See is great. They give lots of practice before moving onto the next subject. We’ve now got our rhythm down and every morning we can’t wait to get started. The Geo puzzle is the only thing I’m not too big of a fan on, it’s a little intense for a 5 year old. We’re just going to save it for a later time. We love our curriculum, it’s hand on all the way keeps your Little was going without becoming bored. I was impressed by the science. Our first day we were working on chemistry, we’re currently in biology. I went to public school and I am confident I was not learning these topics at such an early age. I feel like timberdoodle providing this knowledge so early will peak her interest into science earlier rather than later. If your having any question or doubt, don’t. This is the way to go, and if you ever have questions or need help timberdoodle is there to help.
Love this kit! We started when my son was 4.5 years old. Prep time each week is minimal. There is a large variety of items to keep him engaged, happy and learning. We have added in our own art curriculum (Artistic Pursuits) and will continue that in the future. All of the products are age appropriate. We started using the online scheduler but it didn't have the flexibility I needed, so I created our own excel spreadsheet and it works great for us. This is my first experience homeschooling and this kit really helped me enjoy it.
Fantastic kit! My son loves the learning/fun play activities and is really excelling with this well-rounded curriculum! It is a little pricey, but for me it's well worth it for several reasons.
1. I plan to homeschool long-term. Having someone else provide me with all the tools I need helps me feel more confident, feel less anxious about what to teach my kids, and adds to my support network. It's true that it takes a village. And I could have saved money by getting my own curriculum, but I've heard stories of moms getting burnt out after two or three years of so much work to save money.
2. The curriculum guide has innumerable tips and tricks to help beginner homeschooling families. I was so overwhelmed when I first received everything and I think one of the first lines in the guide is something like: you're probably feeling overwhelmed. Here's why you shouldn't be! And then they give great information that boosted my confidence and let me know that I CAN DO THIS!
3. They provide an online scheduling tool that has been a life saver! My husband and I both want to homeschool our children, so we split the curriculum. He teaches certain areas and I teach others. A couple of courses we manage together. The guide is so flexible and there are instructions on its features in the curriculum guide (that guide really is a blessing!)
4. Timberdoodle staff have been doing this a long time, and it's a program they grew up on. These are some seriously smart people, so I trust them to pick the curriculum I teach my child. Did I mention that I have extensive experience in critical thinking and logic skills? I also own my own accounting practice, so logic is my forte. I question everything and display (mostly healthy) levels of skepticism. So, for me to be singing their praises--guys, they helped bring my dream of homeschooling my children without giving up to fruition and I will forever be grateful. Timberdoodle has a customer as long as I'm homeschooling!
Very rarely do I buy something and when it arrives it exceeds my expectations...this did!! Not only do I love how thorough the curriculum is but how easy they make the step by step, daily, lessons. I was truly concerned and overwhelmed with my homeschooling decision...and the kit truly gave me back that confidence I needed. My son has sat, listened, completed, engaged with each activity. So far complete success and we will be back next year for a new kit!!
