Every morning Josiah asks me the same question, “Mom, where are we going today?” He loves getting out of the house and as a stay-at-home mom I do too! I actually need to get out of the house or else I’ll go crazy.
I want to give Josiah a feel for preschool even though I am keeping him home. It’s valuable for our kids to learn social implications that accompany classroom like experiences.
My top FREE freeschool outings for a classroom like experience are:
- Library story times
- Church Sunday school
- Bible study and Mom’s groups where the kids have teachers and a curriculum
- Community center kid craft times
- Home Depot & Lowes kids’ workshops
These experiences all have an adult teacher figure and other students. Your little will have to learn to follow instructions, deal with distractions in the classroom, participate appropriately, and abide by the rules.
These experiences and the skills they produce are vital to your child’s development and future success. Kindergarden readiness is the goal. Consider every experience you can give your little a step towards the end goal.
