Abeka and Sonlight both have prek programs but you can always do Letter of the week which is free, or Ms. Cullens ABC's also free.  We also use starfall.

 well  chrissy! you really dont need a program! play with your daughter, have some fun with her! teach her some songs(memory is good at this age)

teach her colors using stuff you have in the house, color paper plates and put them on the wall, put numbers on them or abcs

do lots of arts and crafts with her, that gets her fingers and cordination moving along, let her paint, let her use large paper to paint or draw on, 

be sure to read to her, lots of reading to her,

go outside and look for bugs, insects, work in the garden, let her help you in cleaning the house(give her a squirt bottle filled with water and a rag) let her clean also, show her how to feed the dog/cat, play games with her, run , jump, build forts, make what your teacing her fun, she doesnt always have to sit down at a desk or the table, make learning active, if she does worksheets or workbook, make the lessons short, with breaks! be sure to have fun teaching her your self! and if shes not ready dont push, when shes ready she'll will learn!

I used the Abeka program and my DD loved it so much that she flew through the work.  She finished all of her books except for the handwritting.  We are going to start K in January b/c she has to 4 1/2 to start Abeka's accredited program.  Good luck!

My son has enjoyed the Funshine Express program. Its a bit more expensive but comes with all the materials. Great for moms like me who want to do crafts but find it annoying to get together all the materials and clean up, etc.
