I got the sample month and a month that was on sale. The first problem is that it is only designed for an even number of children, so you'll have double what you want, and it's not really easy to split with a friend (I had that brilliant idea and it worked, but not easy).<br><br>
It also utilizes a lot of other resources, lots of library books, and lots of other crafts/activities. It really looks like a WONDERFUL preschool curriculum, but I wouldn't say it's ready made. There are maybe 2 crafts a week that are already put together for you, and that's really nice. My girls really enjoy them. But loads of other things that we aren't really doing. For preschool though, it really is a great curriculum IF you a) don't feel guilty about not doing everything suggested and b) do have some extra time to get the library books you'll need and organize a few of the other activities each week.

Ditto. When I had a family child care I used it for a couple of months. It ended up being just a lot. We couldn't do it all. That gave me a lot of guilt since it is so expensive. I like the letter of the week.. all of the prep was pretty much click & print. Plus we have a pretty big book collection so I could normally find some story that fit the theme for the week.
