Key Features of Each Preschool Curriculum

1. Faith-Based Approach: Central to our preschool curriculum is its integration of biblical teachings into every area of learning, fostering spiritual growth while learning foundational concepts. You will find that the Master Books Method of Education always uses a whole child approach taking into consideration brain development, motor skills, and more.

Stepping Stones offers one lesson per week with three days of assignments each week. Each week, one assignment has you teaching them about a hero of the Bible. You will also teach your child simple memory verses using hand motions and maybe even a familiar tune.

Biblical Beginnings includes biblically sound, age-appropriate books to assist you in teaching your 3–5-year-old to know and love God. Guided by the lesson plans, you cover topics including the gospel, Scripture, the Trinity, and the Christian’s mission. Activity books included will inspire your dear little one to love the God who created everything. These books are highly recommended by our customers and are sure to remain a loved resource in your family library. 

2. Hands-On Learning: Recognizing the importance of experiential learning for young children, Master Books incorporates hands-on activities, sensory experiences, and interactive projects to engage preschoolers in meaningful ways.

Stepping Stones offers coloring throughout and provides opportunities for your child to learn sorting and matching. Teacher instructions within the book guide you to model the activities for the children.

Biblical Beginnings includes crafts, coloring pages, interactive lessons, music, and so much more as you guide your child on an exploration of Creation and the wonders of God’s world!

3. Multi-Subject Integration: Rather than compartmentalizing subjects, Master Books adopts an interdisciplinary approach. This whole-child approach encourages a deeper understanding of the world around them.

Stepping Stones brings in and builds background knowledge through connections to the world around them. It incorporates social sciences, social-emotional learning, Bible, and more into one lesson by using topics that are familiar. Stepping Stones offers a seamless approach to connecting the topics to an overall theme.

Biblical Beginnings offers lessons that incorporate numbers, letters, arts and crafts, Bible, and science. 

4. Flexible Structure: At every skill level, Master Books provides a flexible framework that accommodates diverse learning styles and preferences, enabling parents to tailor the pace and content to suit their child's individual needs.

Stepping Stones suggests a 3 day a week lesson schedule. Parent educators are encouraged to adapt to the pace of the child’s development and the family’s needs.

Biblical Beginnings offers a 4 day a week schedule for lessons with the opportunity to adjust this to your family’s needs and your child’s level of interest and attention span.

5. Parent-Friendly Resources: Master Books understands that parents are crucial partners in their children's education. So we provide comprehensive teacher guides or direction within the open and go workbook. The supply lists for hands-on activities are always easy to find.

Benefits of Master Books Preschool Curriculum:

1. Nurtures Spiritual Growth: By infusing biblical truths into daily lessons, the curriculum fosters a strong foundation of faith from an early age, helping children develop a love for God’s Word, godly character, and an awe and reverence of God.

2. Promotes Active Exploration: Through hands-on activities and sensory experiences, preschoolers are encouraged to actively engage with their environment, fostering curiosity, creativity, and critical thinking skills.

3. Encourages Family Involvement: The flexible nature of the curriculum encourages family involvement in the learning process, fostering stronger bonds and creating memorable learning experiences together.

4. Prepares for Kindergarten Readiness: Master Books ensures that preschoolers acquire essential skills and knowledge in readiness for kindergarten, laying a solid foundation for future academic success. Our Kindergarten curriculum, Simply K, was developed by the author of Stepping Stones guaranteeing the readiness for the child’s next step in academic success.

5. Instills Lifelong Love for Learning: By making learning fun, meaningful, and relevant to children's interests and experiences, both Stepping Stones and Biblical Beginnings instill a lifelong love for learning, setting the stage for a lifetime of curiosity and exploration.

In conclusion, at Master Books Homeschool Curriculum we offer a comprehensive, faith-based approach to early childhood education, fostering spiritual growth, academic readiness, and a lifelong love for learning. By providing engaging, hands-on experiences and flexible resources, it empowers you as parents to play an active role in your child's educational journey.

Hi, I have a Preschooler starting in September and I was wondering if I should order both, Stepping Stones & the Biblical Beginnings? Do they work in conjunction with each other? Is one geared more towards a Bible study approach while the other is core school education? I appreciate your help.

The main difference is teaching methodology and style. Biblical Beginnings is a bit more traditional in its teaching approach with a circle time. Stepping Stones is a bit more developmental in its approach with milestones. You do not need them both. They were not written to work in conjunction with each other. You may find our book previews helpful. The preview will allow you to see several pages of teacher instruction, the table of contents, the schedule, and several pages of student worksheets. You can find those previews on the individual product page under the "A Look Inside" heading located underneath the photo of the books.
