With the accessibility of a parenting how-to book and the thorough educational foundation of an expensive boxed curriculum, this guide will inspire parents to use their homes as classrooms as they take advantage of the naturally rich learning opportunities that occur in everyday home life. Parents will learn how to transform their home into a learning environment that rivals the best preschool classroom by finding exciting learning opportunities in everyday occurrences, from using laundry to teach sorting to exploring growth cycles in the garden. Parents can make easy use of simple-to-start ideas, advice, and activities, as well as organizational tips, recipes, and more than 200 activities that are easy to pull together. In addition, there are convenient charts and checklists to document children's growth, which will help ensure there are no gaps in educational, social, or physical development.
