My DD is just turning five.  Do you think the curricula are too old for her? She reads at about a 2nd grade reading level and has an extreme interest in science. 

Nope, the program is very flexible.  My five year old enjoyed working on it last year too.

I had one of those.  Sounds like it would be a good fit as long as life science suits her.

We love magic school house books/tapes/kits and myth busters here too. This year we are buying a few kits from http://www.academyofscienceforkids.com/ it's not a full curriculum but it's fun and with a couple of added books or internet research it could be.

Another vote for R.E.A.L. Science Odyssey.  We're in the middle of Chemistry and we've loved it.  Great information, fun experiments.  I'm convinced that kids in public school high school level chemistry will not learn a whole lot more than this program my dd is doing in 2nd/3rd grade.

 

My advice is to worry about what you are going to use for a higher level when you get there.  It's hard to imagine where your kids will be at that time.  They may be real science geeks and need something super challenging or they may be much more interested in literature and history and need something more basic.  No matter what they need, you'll find it when you get there.

 

And definitely buy the book.  It is all right there, you don't need to print anything, you just remove the lab sheets when needed.

Another vote for RSO here.

Yet another vote for RSO.  Science instruction is definitely a weak point for me and, lo and behold, RSO makes it enjoyable for my son and for me!
