The Peaceful Preschool: A course designed to help you make the most of the preschool years, created by Jennifer Pepito.
The preschool years are full of wonder, and yet many families miss the best hours of the day, when they send their 3-5 year olds away from home to prepare them for school. If you have been longing to keep your child in the peaceful environment of home for these early years, and yet fear that they will not be prepared for school, this course will help you overcome your fears and develop a plan for preparing them well.
Jennifer Pepito is the mother of seven children, who she has homeschooled from the beginning. Her oldest daughter is an honors student at a local university, and her oldest son will graduate from high school this year with an Associate of Arts degree, earned at a community college while a homeschool student. When she discovered that her second daughter had learning disabilities, she became an avid student of child development, learning from innovators and researchers such as Carol Stock Kranowitz, Jane Healy, Maria Montessori, Kim John Payne, and Charlotte Mason. She is a regular contributor for the Wild and Free homeschool community, and has been published in several online journals and print articles. Caring for young children was one of the best seasons of her life, and she longs to help other mothers enjoy this quickly fleeting season of life.
This course will give you the tools to develop a family vision, brainstorm a schedule or rhythm for your days, and then develop a year long preschool, designed to give your child a love for literature.
