Looking for ways to teach your child while having fun?
It's exhausting scouring Pinterest for hours to find that perfect activity, then spending time buying and prepping all the materials needed to complete it.
Worksheets only keep your child's attention for short periods of time, and don't always interest young kids.
What if your child could learn through play using things you already have at home?

"I have been using Pre-K YOUR Way with my son who is 4 years old. I was looking for activities we could do together. I love how the curriculum is not a book of worksheets to hand off to my son and does not list expensive or complicated materials to go out and purchase. My son and I look forward to completing the activities together.
Each one we've done has been high interest for him and quick enough to hold his attention. They give us great starting points for conversations throughout the day and I can see his vocabulary developing. I've also appreciated how well written the curriculum is. The materials and directions are clearly laid out in logical steps that are easy to follow with little prep." - Erin
BONUS: Your parent-child bond will grow even stronger as you play and learn together.
Finding the time to spend just 15 minutes every day will show your child they they are important to you.
We are all really busy with household tasks, working, grocery shopping and just keeping the house running. It is hard find a lot of time to prep and plan daily lessons.
These activities were created for you! A busy, homeschooling mom who wants to make the most out of every activity/lesson time you do with your child!
Imagine playing educational games with your kids using items you already have at home with less then 3 minutes of prep time.
The Pre-K YOUR Way series is a no-nonsense, simple and fun way to teach your kids at their own pace, meeting them at their own skill level and teaching them in their unique learning style.
All activities are based off of an educational theory called "multiple intelligences" stating that every child learns differently. Some learn better with movement, others like messy play, some like art, others like visual and some love to listen to stories. All of these are a variants of hands-on learning!
Watch as you develop an even stronger bond with your child, learning their unique strengths, laughing together and creating lifelong memories.
"My 3 year old daughter and I had so much fun! While painting, building, drawing, and jumping, she learned about colors shapes, numbers, and letters. The Pre-K YOUR Way activities are easy to follow and can be completed in 15 to 20 minutes. My daughter learned so much while playing and having fun. I highly recommend JDEducational to anyone.” - Tara

2. Activities are modified to YOUR child's development and skill level.
Every child is unique and learns at different paces. Not all three year olds know the same things or have mastered the same developmental tasks. In order to support every child, the curriculum is broken into three levels. These levels are skill-based not age-based. Find out which level is best for your child here.
3. All activities are Budget friendly, using typical household items to complete.
Kids can learn with anything! Pre-K YOUR Way activities utilize items most have already laying around the home - paper, sidewalk chalk, measuring tape, tape, markers, buckets, empty cardboard boxes... etc.
These activities were made to be completed on a budget -- no need to cut out pre-made shapes from construction paper (who wants to spend time doing that anyway??) or buy specific brands of materials.
Each activity defines exactly what your child will learn, lists materials needed and require minimal prep! Prepare for an activity in three minutes or less!
4. Activities range between 10-20 minutes each and are easily integrated into YOUR busy schedule.
Having kids and keeping up with everyday tasks isn't easy. These 15 minute activities will fit right in! These easy to prep lessons can be completed anytime/anywhere using items you already have at home!
They can be completed:
With one child or multiple children of various ages.
With any adult (including parents, grandparents, babysitters and more) that work with kids.
At any time. Every family is different so there is no set schedule. Complete the activities when it is most convenient for you.
Anywhere (at home, at the park, on vacation, inside, outside, and a neighbors house, at a preschool or anywhere else).
Your child will learn new skills and create special memories while you strengthen your relationship through play.

"Pre-K YOUR Way has been a breath of fresh air. My 2 1/2 year old is into anything and everything and has a hard time staying focused. The curriculum is perfect for my busy toddler because most activities last no more than 15-20 minutes.
All the materials are items we have on hand, so there's no need to make a special shopping trip. The activities keep my son engaged, have helped him learn, and best of all, he thinks we're just having play time! I would definitely recommend the curriculum to any parent wanting to strengthen their kids knowledge and have great time while doing so." - Nancy
Spending one-on-one time with your child not only helps them learn, it also gives them the interaction and attention the crave all day - something they will cherish for a lifetime.
Have more then one child? These activities can be completed with multiple children of all ages! Take it from Tara who Homeschools her 3 and 7 year old!
"We did the first two lessons today, and even my 7-year old loved them. He was able to practice his handwriting and learn more about the solar system. It's great that the lessons can be differentiated to include older siblings." Tara
