Five in a Row is a unit based curriculum based on great picture books. There are 2 preschool aged curriculums Before Five in a Row and More Before Five in a Row. The curriculum was written by Jane Claire Lambert who started homeschooling her own children back in 1981. She and her husband Steve have spoken at many homeschool conferences. They are faith filled believing Christians and Ben and I have always enjoyed Steve's talks. Five in a Row has a long history in homeschooling and has been used by many families. I personally have used Five in a Row (not the preschool books) and I loved this curriculum. It is easy to use, engaging, great books are picked to use each week with your children, and my children still talk about some of the books used in this curriculum. I adore Five in a Row and would encourage you to look into using this in your homeschool.

Winter Promise - I'm Ready to Learn looks like a great open and go curriculum for homeschool families. I have used several of Winter Promise's curriculums, but I'm yet to try the preschool curriculum. It looks like a great curriculum packed full of fun for our preschoolers' and it's a strong contender for me to be using this year with my almost 4 year old - I'm still deciding. That being said Winter Promise is a solid Christian company with curriculum that is always easy to use, well written, and so much fun to learn with. I would highly recommend considering this in your preschool curriculum choices!

A Year of Playing Skillfully is without a doubt my favorite preschool age curriculum. The curriculum is broken up by months with plenty of options to fill each day while still allowing fun and play along the way.
Each month gives you ideas on books to read, social skills, a verse to memorize, math, field trip ideas, sensory ideas, outdoor, motor skills, art, and music plus holiday fun too!
My type A personality, also appreciates how well organized this curriculum is. It's easy to use, lays out all the supplies you will need for the month so you can purchase or round up everything you need before a new month begins.
And the best part about A Year of Playing Skillfully is the joy of learning that comes with this curriculum. Preschool is not the time for bogging kids down with worksheets and math facts. Kids learn best through play and life should be full of great play. A Year of Playing Skillfully does this - fills your home with great educational play.
