If you want a FREE preschool curriculum based on Christian principles, ABC Jesus Loves Me is for you! You can download everything you need from their website. There are recommendations for children’s books and typical preschool supplies that are needed but the plans, ideas and schedule is all free!
The curriculum is based on a 36 week time frame and will refer to the year as starting in August; however, it can be used at any point in the year.
This curriculum has grown over the years. When I first discovered this program, there was a 3-Year old program and a 4-Year old Program.There are now programs for 2 year olds, 3 year olds, 4 year olds and 5 year olds! The 3 & 4 year old program is geared toward preparing your preschooler for Kindergarten and the 3 & 4 year old programs will help you to do this.
There is a Goal/Obective Poster for each age level to post each week to keep everyone on track!
The variety of lesson plans and the basic curriculum overview layout are awesome and both are very easy to navigate. You can tell that the author, Heidi, wrote this preschool curriculum with their own preschoolers in mind and that tshe is an experienced homeschooler. This is a definite advantage over getting a published curriculum from the many big name companies out there.
You will find this curriculum in 2 formats. You can download and view everything you need from the website.
The curriculum is also available in Kindle format for those of us who want to have it in book format. Click the picture of the age you are looking for to read more below:
Here is the overview of the curriculum from the ABC Jesus Loves Me website, which describes the curriculum best!
"ABC Jesus Loves Me is a comprehensive, research-based preschool curriculum for ages 2-5 that focuses on academics, development, and the Bible. The four 36-week curricula incorporate learning into the toddler's and preschooler's day instead of controlling it, allowing the child to explore, play, and learn new things.
Our website includes thousands of lesson plans, printables, and supportive ideas to guide the child's learning and help the adult be intentional throughout the day. The entire site is free for family use while
Licenses may be purchased for preschool, church, and business use. Lesson plans and workbooks are available to order in book form."
Heidi does offer this curriculum for preschool classrooms to use as well. There is a licensing fee for it. You can purchase a license each year to use it. I personally used this in a group Christian preschool program. It was amazing and such a blessing to our program! Check out the licensing information on the website by clicking here.
ABC Jesus Loves Me's free preschool curriculum is a true God-send for parents looking for a Christian-based program for homeschooling as well as for Christian based group or family day care programs.
