      Homepreschool and Beyond  includes:

Emphasis on learning through hands-on activities and real life

From the Book’s Back Cover: 

     Many parents struggle to know what to teach their preschoolers.  Some take a “hands-off” approach, providing little in the way of educational activities.  Others emphasize early academics, drilling their youngsters on colors, numbers, and letters while overlooking play and other experiences that are vital for normal development. 

       Preschoolers thrive somewhere between these extremes.  They need a balanced, faith-based, developmentally appropriate approach that emphasizes relationships, simple daily routines, readiness and reading aloud.
