Whether you have older kids schooling at home or in a building, or even if your oldest is preschool-aged, it’s never a bad thing to have a bit of structure to your time during the day. No preschooler should be sitting down for six straight hours, but if you have a curious and active 3 or 4 year old, finding ideas for fun and educational things to do at home can be helpful. Here are 7 free at home preschool curriculum options for you to check out for the coming school year. You can pick and choose between them, or pick one and just do the things that seem like they would be helpful!
7 Free At Home Preschool Curriculum Options
This is a Christian curriculum that incorporates Bible stories and songs with other developmentally appropriate activities. There is a cost if you’re using it at a church or actual preschool, but the individual basic curriculum is free and goes from 18 months to 5 years.
God’s Little Explorer Preschool Curriculum | Motherhood on a Dime
This is another Christian curriculum that combines exploring the Bible with exploring nature. Since kids in this age bracket are so tactile and learn through experience, this is a perfect option (especially for preschool boys!).
Learn at Home Preschool | Stay at Home Educator
You’ll have to sign up for the email list at this site to get these lesson plans, but they look very doable. They came about in 2020 when parents were looking for things to do with their kids at home, so the creator is very aware of how to engage kids when you’re home all day!
Joyful Heart Bible and Rhyme | Hubbard’s Cupboard
This free at home preschool curriculum also combines Scripture stories and songs with other fun activities for little ones. Each week also covers a different letter of the alphabet to work on pre-reading skills.
This website is very bare bones, and it’s not really a curriculum, but it would still be great if you’re just looking for activities to do at home with your preschooler. There are lesson plans on tons of different topics, so pick something your preschooler loves and dive in!
I love this curriculum because it incorporates art, music, and nature, and there are also ideas and options for babies and toddlers. You could incorporate as much or as little as you want to, and you don’t need hardly any supplies on hand. It’s very simple and perfect if you have two little ones close in age.
Reading the Alphabet | This Reading Mama
This free at home preschool curriculum is meant for kids who already know their letters and the letter sounds but aren’t reading yet. It also covers fine motor skills, learning numbers, and more!
