First day of joyschool

So we have decided to save the money we don't really have for preschool and teach the girls at home. I know that preschool is important for structure, socialization, and to get ready for school. But I think our set up will do just great! The girls did attend a home day care/preschool so I feel they learned so much there in regards to playing, sharing and songs I don't even know.

I'm excited! And so are the girls. As of today they love calling me "teacher."

I printed out work sheets that look a lot like the ones our preschool/day care used and will start with the alphabet. We are apart of a great playgroup that meets weekly.

And to give myself more confidence, I did get a special certification in early childhood education. So I got this. If I'm going to be home, I must make the most of these precious toddler and preschool moments. And those will be teaching my girls.

  1. A$ I did the same thing one year when we couldn't afford preschool either. I also invited a few, key word being few,other kids whose folks couldn't afford preschool either to come over. Those are some of my fondest memories with Isaiah,and those kiddos

  2. This makes me feel so much better. Thank you. And look at your son!!! You should be proud. :) As other parents, it has been back to school time for preschool.

    I'm excited about it! When going for my B.A., I wanted to be a high school teacher.
