How do I know what Level and Unit to start with my child?

You know your child better than anyone. Feel free to make notes as you read through the Learning Objectives, checking off what you think your child already knows and what they need to learn.

The Pre-K YOUR Way Series contains 3 separate levels. Every child is unique, therefore this curriculum is based off of skill level rather than age.

Each level includes six units. Each unit builds upon the previous one, so it is recommended that whichever level you choose to use, you start at the first unit.

Please see the free sample booklet which includes the Learning Objectives of each level and a variety of example activities.

While academics readiness is often a main focus for parents and educators, remember that social and emotional development is equally important. Teaching your child how to listen, take turns and engage in play with peers will help prepare them for the interactions that will take place in the classroom. The Social Emotional Activities (Level 1 modules) are appropriate for children of any age.

Pre-K YOUR Way Levels: Our Curriculum includes 3 Levels. Each Level builds on concepts learned the the previous Level.
