UPDATE: This giveaway is now closed.

Congrats to the lucky winner, Becky Waganer, who said, “This would help my granddaughter be smarter then she already is! (Takes after her Gammie!)”  :)

Thank you to everyone for participating!!

If there’s one thing we love, it’s Joy Anderson’s FUNDAMENTALS Preschool Curriculum Package For Toddlers!  We’re so excited she’s offering another opportunity to win it in this week’s giveaway!  One lucky HowDoesShe reader will win this amazing curriculum package which includes over 500 pages of curriculum lesson plans and activities that are perfect for parents of young children ages 2-6, preschool teachers, and child care providers.

Not only does this package have 9 months worth of activity-rich, theme-based lesson plans, but it also has hundreds of pages of printables, Pre-K worksheets, and extra activities also available on the CD-ROM.  The 36 fun themes include: Astronomy, Baking, Caterpillars, holidays and more!  (Total retail value: $97!)  This would be so perfect for my little girl who far too often is learning in front of the TV {gasp, I know, I know}.

When Joy emailed us about becoming a HowDoesShe sponsor, we hopped over to her Start A Preschool website to see what it was all about.  She won us over immediately!  She has the most contagious personality and I am fairly certain that she would be the funnest preschool teacher ever! Her past giveaways with us have been such a HUGE success, we were so pleased she wanted to sponsor another one for you gals!

Lucky for the Treasure Valley, Joy has her own preschool.  Her spots fill up ridiculously fast, so she is also helping other stay at home moms start their own successful home preschools.  Joy Anderson has taught thousands of women how to start their own preschool (not a daycare) in their home and make a supplemental or full-time income by teaching preschool classes to children ages 3-5.

 She’s been asked by so many women to teach them how to start a preschool that she put together her best 7 SECRETS To Starting A Preschool In Your Home… and is giving them away on a FREE CD!  She’ll teach you exactly how to start your own home preschool!  How cool is that?!  Make sure to go over to her website to score your FREE CD too!  If this is something you want to learn about, Joy is the one you want to learn it from.  She might even have some great tips for us young moms who do rotational preschool swap groups with our friends. :)

Please leave separate comments for EACH entry.  All of them are EASY entries. You ready??

3, 4, 5, and 6. Head on over to Start A Preschool and watch Joy’s adorable little clip about how to make extra money at home with a preschool. (It’ll just take a minute. Literally!) You are going to be impressed!  If you’re interested, be sure to get her FREE CD!  After all, if you don’t, you might miss out on perhaps the one opportunity that could change your family’s financial situation.  Then, come back and leave a SEPARATE comment about why starting a preschool would interest you, or why you would enjoy having the Toddler Curriculum package.  This one is worth 4 separate entries. just make sure to leave FOUR separate comments.

For example, if submitting for all 6 entries you would comment something like this:  1. My earliest memory from school was? 2. I’m SO signed up for your newsetter! 3. My kid needs some educational entertainment. I’d love to have this package.  4. Joy is adorable! Why wasn’t my preschool teacher this cool? 5. Starting a preschool at home sounds interesting.  6. Whew. I reached my six entries. I am sooo going to win. -You get the idea.

This giveaway will end next Saturday, August 13th.  Good luck!!

    My 1st memory of "school" is playing school with my older siblings. I was the youngest of 5 kids. One of my sisters was a very strict teacher and would whack my hands with a ruler if I was not doing what I was suppose too;) Let's just say, I was reading by the age 4 because I had 4 devoted teachers.

    My earliest memory was going to a gym class with my sister when I was 3. She's blind and started school at 18 months and since I insisted on going too, my parents put us in a preschool for the handicapped and their siblings. I was allowed leave my classroom to go to some of Katie's classes.

    One of my earliest is remembering picture day in Kindergarten when I wanted to wear a bubble gum machine ring to school and my mom didn't want me to. I promised to take it off before getting my picture taken (which of course I forgot to do). That bubble gum ring is forever immortalized in that photo much to my mom's dismay.

    5. I could learn sooooo soooo much from Joy!!
    6. Joy could really give me the confidence to maybe offer our homeschool pre-school up to my 3 year old twin nieces as well. This could be fun!!!

One of the things was a giant salt crystal and the kids would often just stand there licking on it until they got caught. But it happened all the time. Why didn't they just remove that thing from the table? Eww!

    This has really sparked my interest in starting a home pre-school. My background is in Early Intervention. I worked in the field for over 10 years and then I became a stay at home mom....this is definately something that could allow me to stay home with my kids and earn an income. Great possibility for me.

    #4 - Hi, it's me again, full time working mom of 2 year old twins. My abreviated story...twins almost delivered at 24 weeks, finally delivered at 32 weeks. They were very sick and in the NICU for 2 months. Now, 2 years old, they are thriving, smart, well mannered kids with GREAT personalities. {not that I'm biased or anything}. But I credit this to our nanny who left us just 3 weeks ago :( She was a kindergarden teacher prior to working for us and was AWESOME with the twins. Our new nanny, not as creative, excited or educated on how to educate...if that makes sence. This would be an amazing opportunity for me to be able to assist our new nanny in pushing forward with their education...otherwise my alternative is preschool.

    3. I would love to win this package for my daughter. I can't afford to put her in daycare so I am afraid she isn't getting much educational stimulation. These activities would be a great way to help her out.

    I remember the first day I dropped my youngest (20 months) off at daycare at 10 weeks. I was so impressed because the in-home provider does so much for her kids. My daughter has come to love her as another grandmother and is learning so much. I am glad that I got her into an in-home center that is a preschool/daycare and that I am able to drop my baby off and have peace of mind all the time.
  745. August 10th, 2011 at 11:48 am

    This would help convince friends that in-home preschool isn't daycare!

    1. My earliest memory from school is...the whole class was watching a movie and we were eating a snack too. My snack was an apple. When I took a bite, I felt something very odd coming out of my mouth. It was my tooth! My tooth was just sitting there on the apple. I think this was Kindergarten.

I also got badly stung by a bee on the bottom of my foot due to, I had on navy sandals with white daisies all over them!!! Wow! First grade came and I fell down cement steps before I ever even made it to my First Day of School (have pictures to prove it!) Ha! also had terrible case of Chicken Pox on Halloween during my Kindergarten Year! LOL! not the fondest of memories, huh!?>

My teacher Ms. Jager made sure to give me special attention by letting me be in the front the line for lunch & recess and wearing a special "It's my birthday" button. My mom also brought in homemade (yes, it was when it was still o.k. to bring homemade treats to school) cookies decorated like Cookie Monster and Big Bird. Awwhh.. to be a kid again!

    I think that starting a preschool at home would be a very fun and interesting experience. I am certified to teach but unfortunately schools are not highering new teachers with all of the job cuts.

    My earliest memory of school was in the first grade. I was attending our local catholic elementary and I remember one of my classmates being sent into the closet and getting hit with a ruler for misbehaving. Thankfully, my mom sent me back to the wonderful public school before I was ever sent to the closet.

    Waiting to be able to dress up as Little Red Riding Hood at my preschool! (and I had the angel at the nativity scene too, only I got shy when everyone was laughing at something, guessed it was me, and finished my scene with my wings to the crowd!)

    My earliest memory is a presentation for parents where each kid represented a letter. I was Z. I have no idea what we did, I just remember the t-shirt with a Z and a zebra on it!

    My first memory is from preschool. A cute boy I had a crush on and myself would go around snatching the other kid's toys all in the name of being the Pittsburgh "Stealers". I promise I have learned to share!

    My first memory of school was needing to go to a little girl's house to help "drag" her to school because she hated it and would cry! LOL
  911. August 11th, 2011 at 8:14 am
    Karla says:
    1 - Since I did not attend pre-school, my earliest school memory would have to be a toss up between finger painting in kindergarten or cutting my hair ribbon with a pair of scissors and blaming it on the boy who sat beside me. I don't think we were ever friends after that point.

  913. August 11th, 2011 at 8:20 am
    Karla says:
    3 - Some of my best memories come from when I attended a stay-at-home mom's daycare when I was a child and I am still friends with all the other children who attended with me, even after all these years. But I would have to say that with the standards students are expected to meet in schools now-a-days, the need for a pre-school heavily outweighs a simple daycare but having it in a home environment promotes more security for children (which promotes greater learning).
  914. August 11th, 2011 at 8:22 am
    Karla says:
    4 - I have my degree for early childhood education, but even with completing school the jobs are still slim pickings in my surrounding areas. The education system is taking a dip and I still need to find a job in my chosen career field. If I could start up my own pre-school, that would be an absolute dream come true.

  918. August 11th, 2011 at 8:27 am
    Karla says:
    5 - Though I don't have children yet, I already know the value of being able to spend quality time with them. I also value a quality educational foundation. If I could open my own pre-school and teach I would know that there are children who would be getting the necessary foundation and that my children, when I have them, would be able to have the same one day.
  919. August 11th, 2011 at 8:27 am

    Karla says:
    6 - I love how genuine and honest Joy is and that she is willing to go that extra mile to help other women who are struggling to make ends-meet. If everyone could be this way, our world would be a much better place. Wishful thinking, I suppose. But I would certainly help out whoever I could if I had my own pre-school. Money isn't all that important to me; but ensuring children receive a quality education is. After all, they are the future.

    Melissa says:
    My earliest memory of school is also a costume...in preschool we dressed up as the alphabet and I was a fly for "F". The costume was pretty amazing (they used them year-to-year) and there was another little girl who followed me around and swatted me with a huge fly-swatter :)

    #3 My son's teacher from last year just started a preschool, and when I looked into it for my 4-yr-old, my husband said, "Maybe you should start a preschool."
  926. August 11th, 2011 at 10:32 am
    Melissa says:
    #4 I had already decided to homeschool our 4-yr-old this year, and this curriculum would be a great help!
  927. August 11th, 2011 at 10:36 am
    Melissa says:
    #5 I have also tried home sales companies, like Longaberger, Southern Living, and Usborne, and while I love the products, I don't want to put in the time required to make big money, and leave my children w/ a babysitter while I do parties! So I just ended up supporting my own shopping habits!

    Starting a preschool might even interest me once my baby (due sept.) is older.
  933. August 11th, 2011 at 11:24 am
    Mellissa says:
    I never did preschool with my oldest, we just sort of winged it with the abc's and 123's, and she's doing just fine in school now. But I have less time now that I have more kids and a curriculum would be SO helpful.

    Preschool can be so expensive and we just don't have that kind of money - but I really want my little girl to be in preschool and getting into the preschool at the elementary is nearly impossible since they mostly fill it with kids who don't speak english and this kit would be a huge help in knowing what to do with the kids.

    I've talked to some of the moms in my neighbor hood about starting a preschool and it would be wonderful - but what to do??? we have no idea - so we could definitely use this kit to help us out

    My son is dying for "homework"! He watches my daughter do homework and asks for his own! I download free stuff online but most is so boring for him! Thanks again!

    Wow! I have 5 kids, ages 3, 3, 2, 2, and 1..I teach them now but I'm actually at a stumping point with my two oldest because I'm not sure how to get them to write..which is the next step for them. This would be a wonderful aid in teaching my kids!
