Nonreligious 2021 Preschool Curriculum Kit
(Free Ground Shipping on your entire order when you purchase Nonreligious 2021 Preschool Curriculum Kit)
This program is designed for the two- or three-year-old who is ready for a more intentional approach to learning with an emphasis on activities and conversations rather than worksheets alone. Of course, most preschoolers are eager to have their own workbooks, too, so we've included the very best ones available to be sure you both enjoy this year! 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. 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 am a grandparent doing home preschool with my granddaughter, and I chose Timberdoodle because it has so many hands-on activities. I particularly like that so many of the activity kits originated in northern Europe / the Scandinavian countries because I'm a huge fan of their early childhood educational model (play, not formal seat work). My granddaughter LOVES doing school -- each activity works with the short attention span at this age -- it might only take 5 minutes to complete a STEM model, a game, a couple pages in a workbook, etc. Then she asks me for the "next thing." She cries if we are not "doing school" some days. Everything is extremely high quality, and I love that with the touch of a button on the website, you can generate a 36 week schedule down to the smallest detail because I don't have time for lesson planning! This is the perfect kit for early childhood education!
I couldn’t say enough good things about kit!!! More often than not when I give my son a choice of taking a break to go play or to do school his reply is “I want more worksheets”. What other curriculum have you ever found that has kids picking school work over play?!! All of my kids are constantly asking to play the smart games and use the building toys that came in the kit. I cannot believe the growth I have seen in a short period of time using the curriculum as well. After only 2 or 3 weeks I could see a very noticeable increase in critical thinking and problem solving abilities. I also so marked improvements in fine motor skills and following directions. The combination of products that are included here is perfect. I love that I don’t have to spend hours and hours doing all of this research because Timberdoodle has done it for me and they seem to know EXACTLY what my son needs to be successful. I feel he is being challenged, but not so challenged that he is overwhelmed and wants to give up. I love the focus on critical thinking and problem solving as well as convergent and divergent thinking/building. The curriculum guide included tons of great information for a first time homeschooled like myself. I would have liked a little more information about modifying things for special needs kids, but I know special needs kids is a small subset of clients. I did find once I got into it modifying things became easier and easier.
We’re 3 weeks in and loving every day! I will say that we struggle fitting in all of the stuff every day so we are a bit behind but my husband and I can tell a big difference in our son’s abilities and how excited he is to learn every day. There is minimal sit down work and it can easily be separated out by fun hands on activities
This Timberdoodle Kit was everything I was looking for and MORE! I have been able to homeschool with confidence. Everything is fun, interactive, and helps develop important skills!!
We were on the fence about homeschooling. I work full time & my husband is a stay-at-home dad. He's not much into adding work to his plate & I'm already tired ALL the time. We want a really great education for our kids - but didn't feel like we could commit our lives to 'homeschooling'.
The elite curriculum really swooped in and saved the day. Mostly it is me & my daughter playing together every day before/after work (which we already did), then a couple of days a week we do 20-30 minutes of 'book work'. She is WAY beyond where her pre-school was getting her, and we have a pretty great-relationship with schooling.
Although I doubt I was the best home-school mom, I feel really confident that next year we can do Kindergarten & we are DEFINITLY going to stick with Timberdoodle.
