About Me

Kiley (updated 2020) 

I'm Kiley, sister to Lindsy (who ran this blog until I took over in 2019). I have 4 kids, all of which I've taught preschool and had preschool groups with their friends and others at our home. Teaching preschool is one of my favorite things to do, along with running, hiking, woodworking, cookie decorating, reading, and soooo much more! 

Give your kids as much hands on learning (and avoid the screens!!).

Lindsy (updated 2014)

I'm Lindsy, a mom to five great kids ranging from 1-9 years old! I have always enjoyed doing preschool with my kids. I try to be consistent with it, but it is definitely nothing formal. I have collected these ideas from books, blogs, friends and from my own ideas. I love the structure it gives our day and my kids love the special time just for them. I have learned to relax with our activities ... and it's fun to see how differently they learn and what they enjoy. 

I started preschool with my oldest son, who is now in 4th grade and saved many of the activities so they're ready to go for my next preschoolers. We have added lots of new activities, but it definitely makes it easier the 4th and 5th time around. We do one letter each week and choose a theme for each day starting with that letter.

Something else I've learned is to READ, READ, READ with your kids. They love to sit with a stack of books and have us read to them ... or grab a book and sit down somewhere to "read" to themselves. It's so fun to watch.

My own personal {Mom Theme} is "Let them be little." I love watching my kids grow and learn and discover.
