The past year was exceptional for all of us, with a pandemic causing so many concerns about our health and quality of life. One of the important issues we faced was maintaining learning environments for our children.

  • That meant everything from online learning at the kitchen table, to social distanced play dates with friends.

The availability of digital resources, both free and paid, has helped parents and teachers continue to provide preschool learning from home or in altered classroom environments. 

That makes our roundup of most searched activities even more valuable to your everyday goals for supporting early childhood skills.

Our goal with Preschool Toolkit is to provide easy access to ideas for learning through play.

No matter the structure of the environment, at home or in a classroom, having affordable, meaningful activities to add to your everyday routines is beneficial for early childhood development. 

We pay particular attention to providing play ideas without printables, using instead everyday household items and basic craft supplies. Suggestions are often included in our posts for substitutions, as well as options for extended play.
