This week on Raising Mums, a Live broadcast on the Our Muslim Homeschool Facebook and Instagram accounts, we were discussing “Preschool Learning at Home“.
I’ve also created a Preschool Learning Guide for you to use at home with your children. It has been adapted from the Early Years Statutory Framework, the curriculum used in the UK nurseries and schools for children under 5 years old.

But before you jump into the Preschool Curriculum, watch the video, or listen to the podcast above.
In that episode I introduce the our Early Years Learning Guide and talk about:
- What is most important to establish in these early years.
- Learning Objectives to work towards at home, for children upto the age of 5 years old.
- Book recommendations to learn more about homeschooling
So here it is!
WATCH THIS VIDEO!
Please note, the image in this video was unusually poor. You may wish to listen to this episode of Raising Mums, rather than watch it!
To help you and your children, I’ve created this hand-out for you.
It’s completely FREE! I don’t even want your email address!

How to Use your Early Years Guide
This Early Years Learning Guide has been adapted from the Early Years Statutory Framework, that is used across the UK in nurseries and with reception aged children. I have tried to simplify it and make it more relevant to a typical homelife.
In this FREE guide, I set out learning objectives that you can work on with your children aged 3-5 years old.
Print it out, display it on your fridge or calendar, or just upload it onto your phone. Every morning, take a look at it, and try to work on one “box” or learning category that day.
You do not need to hit every category each day. Just try to work towards one of the learning objectives each day, and cover all the boxes at least once every week.
I hope it gives you some confidence and a sense of purpose as you begin to take charge of your children’s education.
I show more details on how to use it in the video above, so you’ll want to watch it!
