First Time Homeschooler

Hello! I want to start off by saying that my daughter is 4. We live in Nassau County in FL. I want to start homeschooling her but I don't know where to begin. We are not religious, so we need something for secular homeschooling. 

Do any of you moms have any helpful hints for me? Thanks in advance!

 hi labyrinthine! welcome to homeschooling!!!

4 is a fun age!! good time to have some fun teaching her, by playing, singing, painting, coloring etc! making learning fun and you dont even need a curriculum!  just doing everyday things with her, reading to her, showing her colors, counting candies, silverware when setting the table, counting socks etc! looking at bugs outside, digging in the dirt, etc

heres some online places that kids seem to like http://www.starfall.com/

Hi Lagbyrinthine, live in Duval County Florida. Glad to meet you.

1.  You will want to connect with the Florida Parent Educators Association.  They are most helpful, and will help you with legal requirements, find support groups near you, and more.

2.  Here is an article that will also help: How To Home School
