I do not use a specific cirriculum, most of what she does is "busy work" since I have 2 older kids I school. I use printouts from http://www.preschoolpalace.com/ and http://www.tlsbooks.com/ and she plays online on either http://www.starfall.com/ or http://www.abcmouse.com/ (first one is free, second one is a paid subscription).

My daughter is 2.5 years old and I am working on planning her preschool stuff. I am piecing together my own stuff.

We are using:

Before Five in a Row

AbcJesusLovesMe.com

and various printable resources and ideas from the internet. There are SOOO many great websites out there for preschoolers 

Here is our blog

I'm using www.letteroftheweek.com for our springboard, and I've adapted it to suit my speech delayed two y.o. it works well so far, and it's free, easy and comprehensive.

 OK I have 2 seperate comments:

#1: FOR EVERYONE: If there was a preschool curriculum that covered every subject and all developmental areas that focused on play and hands on activities (not worksheets) would you be interested? I envision something spiral bound so it could lay flat with easy to follow icons to let you know subject or development. What do you think???

#2 for my ASD son and my 2yo we do all play based. We do watch baby you can read. Then for 2yo its random and asd its activity boxes that include: mega blocks, lego, playdough (with letter stamps), scissor stuff, sticker art, lacing, tracing, reading, letter puzzles, number puzzles, sand play, painting, fridge phonics, color match, games like candyland, shape sort.

I never used any "curriculum" for any of my children until age 6 or 7.  Before that they learned all they needed just by reading to them, coloring, doing puzzles, educational games, etc..

I am using activities from Confessions of a Homeschooler. I also got the Rod and Staff books for my boys.  My boys are 2 1/2 and 4.
