Little City Kids: Homeschooling Your Preschooler

Update #2: In the spirit of loving history, kids and adventure we are organizing a world discovery-based comprehensive preschool curriculum called Civentures.

Update #1:  Since posting this information it seems that Little City Kids has become defunct. I have tried reaching out to any contacts I could find to see about making the curriculum available but I have not received a response. 

Since this is a pre-school curriculum it should be said that an official curriculum is not really necessary.  As long as you are reading, playing, and giving them different ways to experience and interact with the world you are doing what they need. So, you could use the perspective as an outline to Pinterest 52-weeks of activities and topics just as easily!

Original Post Information:

So, this looks pretty awesome!

Little City Kids is a preschool and they had an open 52-week curriculum, which they call their Perspective.

It is not designed for homeschoolers, but can easily be adapted for it with a little planning (seriously, little – like read it over the weekend to see if you need to get any supplies for the week).  Plus, since it is designed for a school setting there is more on each day’s plan than a home learner would want or need.  Meaning, you could easily cherry pick what you want to actually do at home or skip things you do not have the supplies for and/ or do not want to buy or Pinterest.

Each week has a designated theme and a plan for each day.  The daily plans include discussions, cooking, crafts, art, movement, outdoors, yoga, and many activities that fall under the category of “explorations.”

It is really well organized and easy to follow. Plus, it goes beyond the basic topics normally presented to young children (meaning it may be interesting for you too!).  I was going to just tell you a couple of their topics but there are too many good ones so here’s the full 52-week perspective:
