Re: first time here i need help.

If it were me, I would start with what your little girl likes doing. For my girls, I got a bunch of work books because they love work pages. Something is better then nothing until you figure out what direction you want to go with it. (co-op, purchase curriculum, create a curriculum, and so on) Young kids learn from everything, and so everything can be a learning experience. Our personal choice was to purchase a curriculum for Kindergarten, but prior to that, was just fun learning through everyday, and a few work pages, some story time. as for the notice of intent, if you have enrolled her already, it would probably be courteous to do so, but if I understand the laws correctly, its not required by law. Just keep her work pages and samples of what she is doing so you can prove her development if they get testy with you. I have no idea what the schools in your area react like, so I am not really a good source on that front. Good luck and have fun!
