The Essentials Preschool Kit includes the basic items (excluding The Harp & Laurel Wreath and The Children's Bible) recommended in the Preschool syllabus, but leaves out the reading books and many of the manipulatives in case you have many of these already, or are looking to keep costs down.
The Pre-K curriculum is gentle by design. It is set up to be completed over 1 year or 2 years depending on the student’s ability and interest. Preschool students in a homeschool situation naturally have a wonderful advantage. They participate in the life of a family. They play “kitchen”, measure rice and move cereal from one bowl to another, they pour water, stir ice cubes with a spoon, listen to conversations around them, and create while they play.
Enrolled families receive the normal 15% discount from the listed price, but we've discounted the kit further to give enrolled families an additional $15 savings from purchasing everything individually and have included shipping (in the continental United States), which comes out to approximately $30 in savings for an enrolled family.
