Preschool homeschool co-op

Angie at the Homeschool Classroom has a great post about starting a homeschool preschool co-op.

Starting a Homeschool Preschool Co-op

Although many parents come to homeschooling after their children have already spent years in a public or private school, there are also many parents who begin thinking of homeschooling before their children have even been born.  Still others come to their interest in homeschooling when the preschool years hit.

In our society, preschool has become the norm for so many. It seems as soon as a child is three or four, people start asking, “Are they going to preschool?”  Although all of my children did at least some preschool outside of the home, this is a perfect age for the homeschooling experience.  Still — some families long for the opportunities that an outside preschool has to offer, even though they long to homeschool.

For those families wanting the best of both worlds, a homeschool preschool co-op might be the perfect solution.

What is a homeschool preschool co-op?

A homeschool preschool co-op will look different from group to group.  However, the basic idea is that it will be a small group of parents (typically mothers) and preschool aged children who meet for preschool together.

Angie’s post goes on to share some great tips on getting started. Read the rest here

My book,  Homeschool Co-ops: How to Start Them, Run Them and Not Burn Out, can also be a great place to get started in launching a preschool co-op. Read a sample chapter Your First Planning Meeting at HomeschoolCo-ops.com

Here’s a neat idea if you would like to start a preschool homeschool co-op.  The founders call it Joy School and give you activities, music CDs, a schedule and manual. Yes, there are fees involved, but it might be worth it and is definitely cheaper than a commercial preschool.
