Does your child need socialization and interaction or does he need a more academic program. Remember that if your child is properly socialized, he will be more prepared to be academic when the time comes. Check out local and neighborhood preschools that focus on interaction, art and socialization unless your child is ready for academics. We love Joy School for this reason and Stacey and Nancy have conducted Joy School with 5 of our kids. It is hard work for the parents, but it is worth it and the cost is low–a low monthly fee for all materials. For more home preschool information, see the JoySchool website Also check out Show 14 to meet the creator of Joy School, Linda Eyre. If your child is ready to read and ready for academics, check out preschools that have a more academic focus. Some parents want their kids to push ahead and get academics going earlier, but if your child is not ready, this can backfire. So know your child and his needs as well as your abilities to work with him.
