Hello Everyone,

I was curious what kind of schedule everyone has for their little ones... I
will be doing kindergarten with my son in the Fall. I may even start as
early as July with his schooling.

I have an in-home childcare also. I will have two-one year olds, an
infant, a three year old and my five year old son at that time. So, I will
definitely have to work around their routine as well.

I am good about keeping my children on a daily routine and I think that
will definitely help when creating a kindergarten schedule for my son. I
am also a very organized person and I think that will come in handy too.

In GA, the laws that are shown seem to apply to children who are ages 6-
16 which is confusing to me. What about five year olds? It shows that
they require 4.5 hours per day for schooling, but again it says nothing
about five year olds. I am sure it is because I am new that I am confused
about this, so I am hoping someone can help me understand better.

I would think that a home-schooled child in kindergarten would only
need about two hours of learning time per day as opposed to 4.5 hours,
but I could be very wrong.

Anyway, back to schedule. I want to mainly teach my son when the little
ones are napping. That means I will have some time in the morning and
some time in the afternoon when the kids rest. Also, two of my children
come only three days a week, and that means on the other two days I am
free of other children by 3:30 at the latest. On those days, I may teach
my son after they leave.

I guess I will have to play it by ear and see what works best.

I want to make sure to include plenty of hands on work, but my son also
enjoys the computer too, so I want to include some of that also. I will
definitely be including Christian based learning too. Of course, we will
have outdoor time and my son likes to help me cook, so I am hoping I
can do some simple math lessons when he helps me in the kitchen.

Well, I will stop going on and on. I am just wanting to know how
everyone runs their schedules, primarily for younger kids (elementary
ages). Thanks so much for all your help and have a wonderful day! : )

The compulsory school age is 6 through 16. It doesn't mean that you can't teach your 5yo; it only means that you are free from having to comply with GA's stupid regulations until the following year.

Oh, I'm sorry...did I say "stupid"?

So this year just do whatever you think is right for your dc. You shouldn't need to spend more than an hour, really, on anything that looks like academics.
