So my husband and I agreed that we would prefer our children to be home schooled. My daughters are now 3, and I am starting to plan for their first year of school. I was just wondering where you get all of your information, as to what they should learn in a year, which books are best etc. I live in Canada, and I seems to have a award time finding all the information that I need. I have a few but doesn't seem quite enough. Thanks.

I am not as familiar with Canada, but here here is a link a to a home school Conference in Canada:  I highly recommend going to the conferences where you can attend workshops, view curriculum (much of it created by home school families), find support groups, find out about legal requirements,  and much more.

The public school system is pushing the kids faster and faster at earlier ages, and the success rate with the  kids is dropping.  Their natural desire to learn is shutting down.  I recommend not repeating the mistakes from the public schools, but return to what works.  Retaining the child's natural desire to learn for their lifetime is the goal.  Here is an article that will give you some ideas of the different methods used by home school families.
