I was wondering if there are any moms who homeschool their children. In this economy it is nearly impossible to pay the prices the childcare centers want to prep your child for pre-school. My two year old is very smart and I want to do all I can to get him prepared for kindergarten. Are there any good websites, books you can recommend that offer up a curriculum for him?Answer Question

It's ridiculous to call it school when your children are not even school age. All parents should be teaching their children basic skills.

I agree with the rest who say let the kids play and be "2". Lots of time with blocks and sandboxes, playdough and puzzles, parks and reading to him etc.
At the same time you can make a more deliberate effort to have some age appropriate learning activities for him. There is some great info on "homeschool" type stuff for toddlers at http://www.squidoo.com/toddler-workbox
