What People Are Saying about the Program
"Wow! What a great curriculum collection! I spent several years in the public school setting working in kindergarten. For my own kids I wanted to use a strong curriculum similar to what I used there, yet wanted it to be knitted together with aspects of the faith. This does just that. The variety ensures each individual student can be reached. There is plenty of material to use with my little ones for two years of preschool and on into kindergarten. I am so glad I found it as I begin teaching my first preschooler!" - Debbie B.
"We just completed our first week of preschool with my 3-year-old and he absolutely loved it! He kept asking if we were doing preschool over the weekend, which was so precious to hear since this is my first time homeschooling! There is soo much included in this curriculum, so it is very customizable to my child's age and development. It took a little while to go through it all to figure out what I needed to start but once I figured that out lesson planning became so simple because of the provided lists. Thank y'all for putting this all together and for making it so cohesive." - Jacqueline K.
"This program is such a blessing! Thank you for sharing your talent and gifts with the rest of us mommas." - Vinessa C.

Don't Have a Printer? You Can Still Join!
If you don't have a printer, or you want to be able to print in color and don't have a color printer, we suggest having things printed at a local print shop or through an online option that will ship to you.
While we don't offer an option to ship items to you, either of those options would be cheaper than anything we could offer for that service. (You might also consider purchasing a reasonably priced printer as an option as well.)
