Alpha Omega Curriculum for Preschool is a Christian homeschooling program that has been around for over 30 years. They have built a solid name for themselves during that time. Up until recently, they only offered curriculum programs that started in Kindergarten.
In 2007, they introduced Horizons Preschool, a Christian preschool curriculum program. This curriculum introduces preschoolers to social studies, language arts, math, phonics, and science. Additional topics include health and safety, arts and crafts, music, and physical education.
Alpha Omega states on their website, "Horizons Preschool can be easily adapted to a variety of schedules and program objectives with a flexible organizational structure. The Horizons Preschool Curriculum Set includes all the tools you need to succeed including additional manipulatives and engaging multimedia which compliments lesson themes."
If you decide to go with Alpha Omega curriculum, I would recommend the Complete Curriculum and Multimedia Set. It contains 180 hands-on lessons that are biblically-based. I loved how the lessons teach not only core subjects (language arts, math, science), but also include extension activities like arts and crafts, music, stories, and outside activities. There are also plenty of games, songs, poems, and drama to get your preschooler ready for kindergarten in a Christian setting.
The best part Alpha Omega curriculum is that it includes comprehensive teacher guides that are easy to implement. The daily lesson plans allow you the flexibility to control your homeschool schedule – you teach when it works best for you and your child. Alpha Omega makes teaching your child fun (as if it wasn’t already, right?)!
The multimedia set has an extensive list of music CDs, CD-ROMs, and videos that you can incorporate into each day's lessons. In this day and age, we know how important it is to introduce children early to the variety of media that they will encounter on a daily basis.
This Christian preschool curriculum can be used with a single child, or schools can order for a complete classroom. Alpha Omega's website also offers great support – a live chat feature, as well as terrific customer service.
All in all, I would rate Alpha Omega curriculum for preschool an A+.
