It starts at birth, and probably before.  You likely helped your children learn to walk, and talk, ext.  We don't often think about what we moms due daily as educating or children...we take it for granted.  But you have already home educating them.  Here are some ideas for pre K

 welcome chonie!!! busy working 2 jobs!!

all my kids started at different ages as far as learning to read/phonics

before we started doing any school work we did lots of arts and crafts together, painting, playing, learning songs, etc

oldest dd was 5, next dd was 5, next dd she taught herself listening to me teach the others, ds was 8

as for the programs i made my own up, used various library books, no internet at that time,

so how old are your little ones?

 We unschool so no formal learning goes on here I consider my children leaning from before birth. We all have a need to learn & explore so even if you don't try to learn something you are going to learn it is just how we work!

My opinion of homeschooling is that it is best for my kids right now.  If your children are ahead or behind, get easily distracted, distract other children, you want to travel, or if you just want to homeschool as long as you are willing to put in the work, then homeschooling is best for your kids.  It also depends on the school system in your area.  If you are in a bad school system it might be even more important to homeschool.

My kids are ahead in some areas and my oldest doesnt do well without  some one on one teaching time. So homeschool is our best option.  Plus I really enjoy helping my children learn.

Anything you teach them is learning.  You can start teaching your oldest to count using some of their favorite toys that have pieces (like cars or dolls), you can also start teaching the ABC's.  My DD knew all her letters and what sounds they made by 19 mos.  She is super advanced in that department.  She learns fast.  Some learn slower.  It is never to early to start working with you child.  Good luck in making your decision.  This is the best decision for my family.

 Hi Chonie! Welcome to the group. :)  And

 The wonderful world of homeschooling Adventures!  :)   

 You can start at any time and use just about anything you have around you. Or you can buy a program with a full curriculum. Whatever suits you best and your family.  I write my own curriculum myself. I also buy once in awhile those activity books from the local stores...walmart, dollar stores, ect.... we also use library books, buy used books, use books that have been given to us.  We even use our own imaginations to teach and learn by.
