Review: What Your Preschooler Needs to Know

I really enjoy What Your Preschooler Needs to Know. It has a lot of classic poems, nursery rhymes as  well as little stories from history and a bit of science. My daughter enjoys just snuggling up and reading the book together. I like how the history and science are not overwhelming for a young child. The illustrations are bright and big to help engage the children even more. Definitely, recommend and will continue with What Your Kindergartener Needs to Know.

Daily Schedule: Toddler

Our daughter is 2.5 now. We’ve been doing the same schedule for awhile now works great for us but might not work for everyone.


8-9: wake up, go potty, get dressed (she picks her own clothes), breakfast with milk or water, brush teeth
10-12: school time, play time
12-1: lunch with water or juice
1-6: story time, dance and singing, play time
6-7: dinner
7-8: play time
8-9: bath/shower time, brush teeth, story, bed


She doesn’t wake during the night or take naps because then she’ll stay up forever.

Getting Started & Preschool Schedule

I noticed a lot of people on Facebook where asking about how to get started with homeschooling and what people do for their toddlers. In Texas, it’s very simple. You just send a letter or email to your child’s school letting them know you are withdrawing your child with the intent of homeschooling. Then begin homeschooling. Every state has different laws of what needs to be taught and what you need to do as far as testing. This website is very helpful for information by state. You’ll need to get a curriculum that you feel well be a good fit for your family. There are religious and secular (non-religious) curriculums. I have chosen Timberdoodle. They are a hands-on curriculum, offer both religious and non, you can customize your kits and they even have a scheduler to help you know what needs to get done each week.


Here is what we do for preschool. I did these myself; it’s not Timberdoodle.


Monday: books (she picks one and 1 about letters), game based on letters, break, 2 workbook pages…
