Teaching Preschool From Home: Can I (or Should I) Do It?

Last week I quit my job. It was a big old emotional decision; you can read all about it here.

Quitting my job was huge for a multitude of reasons. Perhaps the biggest reason of all is that I plan to take BooBoo out of preschool to provide a preschool education for him at home.  I’m a huge believer in the importance of preschool, but even a part-time preschool education suddenly seems out of reach without my second income.

This is really scary for me. BooBoo has been in daycare/preschool since infancy and this brave new world of mommy taking the educational reigns is uncharted territory.

I have a bachelor’s degree in Child Development, but so what? I earned that thing over 13 years ago and never once used it in my corporate employment. My son seems pretty smart so I think hope I can manage teaching him myself…but what if I suck at it?

I don’t like to suck at stuff. Especially important stuff.

Kindergarten will be here all too soon and I take his education really seriously. For those of you who chosen this route, how did it go? Do you have any resources to offer? Am I making a catastrophic mistake?

Please share your thoughts, ideas and resources!
