I'm sure every mom will have a different approach, but here is one I've seen work:
The attention span for a 2-4 year old is about ten minutes. We recommend focusing on the 3 R's : reading, writing, and arithmetic. The first thing when considering homeschool is to remember that it is all about you being the main influence in your child's life and preserving that light of curiosity and love of learning that gets stamped out of them far too quickly in the public system. You are the expert on your child. You are already homeschooling them; you taught them how to walk, how to talk, how to eat solids, etc. Homeschooling is just a continuation of what you are already doing!
A homeschool day is a LOT shorter than you think! You do not need to replicate the school system. See the "Schedules for Homeschool" tab for examples on how homeschool parents structure their days.
An enrichment school/program or class will vary by location. Check out our link to view some in our area! As you review some of our local suggestions here in Placer County, Ca you'll find similarities.
Charter schools are public schools owned, operated, and funded with public tax dollars. They exist to provide more options and specializations for parents to choose from for their children's education. Because of these public tax dollars, each student is given a budget to help parents cover the costs of supplies, curriculum, enrichment and physical education classes. Your assigned E.S will be able to explain in more detail how these funds can be used specifically for your school.
The Education Specialist (E.S.) is a credentialed teacher who provides professional educational support to parents and students. The primary role of the E.S. is to evaluate the student's progress towards the attainment of the student standards set forth in the school charter.
Although during the enrollment process your charter may say immunization records need to be updated to meet "public school requirements", do not fear. After your charter reaches out to confirm your child's status, simply respond to the email and say "I'd like the exemption waiver". They know the law, they shouldn't give you ANY pushback here.
Some charters provide the form right there with the enrollment paperwork, but some are sneaky and you need to reach out to get the waiver.
