I think the absolute best thing you can do in the preK years is get into a good rhythm. I've often said that there are rhythms I first set into place 11 years ago when my oldest was just a toddler that I'm still using today. Especially if you're planning on following Waldorf methods, the preschool years are a great time to do the inner work and start to figure out what you believe, what's important to you, and why. To that end, there's a great blog called Parenting Passageway
Heather is absolutely right when she says that in Waldorf preK there is no curriculum. There's stuff out there that can help you form the rhythms and give some shape to your day, but what it's really about is working on your relationship with your child, with yourself, with your days. And when you have those rhythms in place, when you do finally reach "official homeschooling" age, you'll be better able to add that stuff in.
When I just had itty bitties, some of our rhythms included:
FRIDAY: crafting for others
Then maybe when they were 4, we might add
MONDAY: New story
Tuesday: Read again and tell a different way
WEDNESDAY: Make a craft that goes with the story
THURSDAY: Make a recipe
FRIDAY: Some sort of creative dramatics
I always did a little "circle time" from infancy on, although I stopped early on trying to make it look like a Waldorf school circle. Instead, I focused on creating a reverent space with a candle and we would sing some songs, do some rhymes, etc.
We worked on cleaning and slowing down so they could help. We figured out how we wanted to celebrate holidays and Holy Days. I worked on making sure I had times when my children saw me crafting and reading and praying and taking care of my home and taking care of myself.
I practiced staying home, LOL! It's really tempting to run around all over the place and join every program, but I knew that was counterproductive. So instead, we had marketing day and library day and worked a daily walk/nature exploration into our routine.
Hope this is helpful.
ETA: Which isn't to say that the books and materials out there can't help you achieve these goals, but if it's Waldorf, it probably isn't billing itself as a "curriculum".Edited by annettemarie - 5/3/11 at 8:08pm
