The Preschool Experience
A Homeschool Preschool Curriculum

- building critical thinking skills that will help them work through things and not focus on the end result
- learning about their unique interests and curiosities while building a strong love of learning
- exploring developmentally appropriate Kindergarten readiness skills
- And learning how to be independent and confident in their abilities
Organized enough for you to follow, yet flexible enough to follow your child’s lead.
Process- and exploration-focused.
Project-based with literacy, math, science, arts, and technology interconnected.
Research-based, Mom-tested, Preschooler-approved.
Designed by a certified teacher actively teaching her own kiddos at home.
What Your Preschooler Will Learn
The Preschool Experience is a time to build a strong foundation to learning while fostering independence and a love of learning. Your preschooler will be working on a variety of developmentally appropriate math skills, reading skills, and writing skills through Montessori-inspired activities to prepare them for Kindergarten.
Through play-based activities that use materials around the house like clothes pin and tongs, your preschooler will practice both fine motor and gross motor skills. Strong motor skills are essential for skills such as writing.
The curriculum encourages your preschooler to be creative and gives you the freedom to choose activities that will resonate best with your child. Your child will flourish in their own unique creative ways such as drama, art, and music.
I was looking for a structured system that worked. When I tried The Preschool Experience, the first week I saw amazing changes in learning, playing, and even behavior in my 4 year old.

What's Inside The Preschool Experience Curriculum
A full project-based, completely child-led homeschool preschool curriculum for 3 & 4 year olds.
This homeschool preschool program is designed to prepare your child for Kindergarten through their unique interests. Spend your days exploring your child’s questions and curiosities while integrating math and literacy at their own pace.
The curriculum is broken into 3 sections:
1. Unit Studies (See a Sample From This Section)
New unit studies are added on a consistent basis.
Spend time exploring your preschoolers questions, interests, and hobbies through hands-on, child-led, play-based unit studies. Most activities can be prepped in 5 minutes or less with materials found around the house.
The majority of the activities in the unit studies are child-led, so you can leave them out most of the week for your child to explore on their own time (cutting back on the amount you have to plan).
Being able to explore activities multiple times deepens learning and brings forward new curiosities to explore.
Each Unit Study Includes…
- Invitations to Explore
- Hands-on activities to answer common questions
- Gross Motor
- Fine Motor
- Process Art
2. Math (See a Sample From This Section)
The math section includes hands-on, Montessori-inspired activities for all recommended skills for 3 and 4 year olds. You have the freedom to jump around based on your child’s readiness and interest in each skill.
Your preschooler will work on…
- Number Sense
3. Literacy (See a Sample From This Section)
A full developmentally appropriate, Montessori-inspired literacy program for learning to read and write. This section is flexible enough to follow your child’s lead with readiness on each skill.
Your preschooler will work on…
- Name Work
- Alphabet Knowledge
- Pre-Reading Word Work
- Word Building
And also access...
And my pledge to you:
The materials are simple to prepare & easy to find (bet you’ve already got most of them on hand) so you can spend more time WITH your child & less time PLANNING.
The Preschool Experience Curriculum is developmentally appropriate for ages 3-4 years old. That means no more guessing… you won’t frustrate or under-challenge your child… you’ll be confident and your little one will be engaged!
You’ll have 24-hour online access to the curriculum so you can plan whenever you have the time. (Oh, don’t worry the printing is minimal. Only print what you absolutely need.)
Unit Studies are based on your child’s interests (seriously, you can request specific unit studies that YOUR child will love and I’ll develop them for you at no extra cost! An endless supply!)
All the activities are hands-on, process-based, play-oriented, and child-led.
I’m avaliable to help you handle challenges that come up.
Each unit study includes activities to :
Develop a strong love of learning.
Strengthen fine- and gross-motor skills.
Provide support in learning academic concepts through Montessori-inspired lessons.
Develop strong problem solving skills, critical thinking skills, and creativity.
Help preschoolers explore their world using all their senses while challenging their brains to think beyond what’s in front of them.
Inspire and encourage their curiosity of the world by asking questions and seeking answers.
Every unit study includes invitations to open-ended experiences that can be prepped and set up in minutes.
This preschool at home curriculum can be customized to every child, and most activities can be made easier or harder to fit your unique child’s abilities.
When I first looked into The Preschool Experience, I felt like it was all laid out for me in a way that would allow my daughter to lead her own learning. I wanted to foster that learning is fun and exciting so it will continue when we are school aged. The Preschool Experience has let me build a strong love of learning in my 4 year old. She asks to do school everyday.”

Frequently Asked Questions
Absolutely not. I have many customers who use the curriculum as a guide. There are enough activities in each unit study to fully learn about a topic at the preschool level. But if your preschooler has their own idea or you see something you want to try, the curriculum is flexible enough that you can do your own thing right alongside it.
Are there assessments?
Nope. There is a checklist of skills for each activity, but the curriculum focuses on play and child-led experiences that help them learn about their interests. No assessment is needed. When you’re learning and exploring right alongside your little one everyday, you don’t need an assessment to tell you what your child knows.
Will I really have time to implement the curriculum?
I get it …You’re a super busy mom with 986 things to do. I’ve laid out all the steps in crystal clear fashion so that you don’t have to worry about anything. You’ll be planned & prepped for the whole week in 30 minutes. Then each night before bed spend 10 minutes setting up the next days activities. I even get laundry and cleaning done during the day since most of the activities are child-led.
How many activities are there each day?
That all depends on you and your little. Many of the activities will repeat all week. Multiple exposures to activities helps deepen learning. You get to pick & choose how many and which activities will most engage your little.
What age is the curriculum for?
The curriculum is designed for 3-4 year olds. However, some 2 year olds may be ready to start exploring the preschool curriculum whereas some 5 year olds may still need the extra support. Every child has their own unique learning timeline.
Are all the materials included?
I try to keep all materials to a minimum and things you can find around the house. I give alternatives to many things used in the curriculum. There are some images, 3-part cards, and other printable resources in each unit study. We focus on hands-on learning, so there isn’t much to print out. You won’t find pages of printables if that’s what you’re looking for.
What unit studies are included?
Right now there are over 20 unit studies, with more added every month. For a list of unit studies already included, send me a quick email and I’ll get a list to you. I encourage you to email me with any ideas for unit studies that relate to your child’s interests. I want to make sure you have the activities you need to meet your child’s unique interests.
We are loving the preschool curriculum! The body unit was AMAZING and my boys learned so much! If you haven’t already, check it out. Having a curriculum makes it so much easier for me to jump into topics they are interested in without spending hours trying to prepare on my own.”
