Preschool 2 (3 – 4 years old)

Our Preschool program focuses on children from age two to their fourth birthday.

We believe that one of the best things a parent can instill in very young children is a love for learning. We suggest that a gentle approach to education be taken during these very early years, because most young children do not have adequate fine motor control to do much work in a workbook-style curriculum. Instead, we recommend a hands-on method.

Although we use very few testing materials in the early years, we do recommend either a test or a checklist before starting instruction in reading. Children lacking in gross motor or fine motor skills will likely face frustration in reading instruction.

Most of the items in this package are non-consumable, if the original items are kept then additional children going through this level would be $115 each.

Preschool 2 includes:

Big Thoughts for Little People

Ken Taylor’s best-selling book is now updated with all-new bright and colorful illustrations and a larger trim size. Using the alphabet as a learning tool, the easy-to-use format of this beloved picture book connects Bible themes and verses that teach kids ages 3-7 Christian values. Each spread represents a letter of the alphabet and a Christian value or moral lesson beginning with the same letter. Kids are encouraged to find the lesson being modeled (or not) in the illustrations.

Basic Skills (Montessori Method)

Give preschoolers the gift of learning with this Montessori-inspired early-childhood activity book!

In the Montessori Method, knowledge develops through the senses, and learning is nourished by freedom of choice, practical experience, and direct experimentation. This method of educating children has been widely implemented around the world, in preschools and beyond.

This engaging book with 24 pages of stickers focuses on three main early-learning concepts: colors, numbers, and shapes. Each activity, be it choosing the correct color to fill in a picture, finding the hidden triangle, or helping a squirrel count his acorns, stimulates learning through play and enhances the child’s cognitive development. The activities become progressively more complex according to the three stages of a child’s learning: getting to know the material through sensory experience, recognizing the material, and being able to explain the material. For example, an activity will ask a child to identify the color yellow, then to pick which object to color yellow, and explain why. The stickers tie into the activities, making the experience more tactile for the child.

Preschool Practice (Montessori Method)

Give preschoolers the opportunity to practice their colors, shapes, and numbers with this colorful Montessori workbook full of engaging activities about animals and nature!

In the Montessori Method, knowledge develops through the senses, and learning is nourished by freedom of choice, practical experience, and direct experimentation. This method of educating children has been widely implemented around the world, in preschools and beyond.

The animal- and nature-themed activities in this fun compendium focus on colors, numbers, and shapes, and grow more complex according to the three stages of a child’s learning: getting to know the material through sensory experience, recognizing the material, and being able to explain the material. For example, they’ll count the number of quills on a porcupine, pick the correct number from three choices, and trace it. Or, they’ll color in the different parts of a beautiful butterfly using the right shades, explore a mole’s tunnel by joining the dots, and connect five birds to their different nests. Twenty-four pages of stickers at the back of the book make learning more tactile and interactive.

The Tale of Peter Rabbit

The Tale of Peter Rabbit is the original classic by Beatrix Potter. The Tale of Peter Rabbit was first published by Frederick Warne in 1902 and endures as Beatrix Potter’s most popular and well-loved tale. It tells the story of a very mischievous rabbit and the trouble he encounters in Mr McGregor’s vegetable garden! Re-originated in 2002 to mark the centenary of publication bringing it closer to the original edition, six illustrations were restored, four that were removed in 1903 to make room for endpapers and two that have never been used before, Beatrix having initially prepared more illustrations than could be accommodated in the original format. Beatrix Potter is regarded as one of the world’s best-loved children’s authors of all time

The Tale of Tom Kitten

The Tale of Tom Kitten is set in the cottage garden Beatrix Potter created herself at Hill Top, the farm she owned near the village of Sawrey. Tom and his sisters look so smart in their new clothes. When their mother sends them outside while she waits for her visitors, she couldn’t possibly guess what kind of mess they are going to get themselves into!
