Craving structure during your child's early years?
Does the age of six seem like a long time to wait until formal lessons?
I've been there! Five years ago, I had an eager child who just wanted to learn, but I felt uncomfortable holding her back simply to fulfill a Charlotte Mason ideal. On the other hand, I wanted to preserve her childhood for as long as I could.
I was torn.
That was two preschoolers ago, and over time, I learned some important ideas:
A life of ideas doesn't have to wait until your child is 6.
I created Idea Nest as an alternative to traditional preschool curriculum, that gives you a way to present beautiful ideas to your young child.
The Idea Nest is a year-long early years guide determined to offer ideas to your child. Each month focuses on a habit, a Bible story, and a big idea, from nature or literature. You'll find book suggestions each month, as well as a hymn, memory verse, play ideas, and science explorations.
Give structure to your days by using some aspects as part of your morning time. Read a book, look at the art selection, read a poem, read the Bible story, and listen to the hymn. The rest of your day can include play, exploration, and learning about nature.
