1. Academic skills
If you have a thought of what academic skills your pre-schooler should learn and know before heading to primary school or kindergarten, your thought was not misplaced because there are indeed preschool academic skills required of your children before they finish preschool education be it through homeschooling or school education. These academic skills can be said to be nonroutine cognitive skills that can promote the child’s critical and creative reasoning and thinking ability and enhance the child’s practical skills.
Just before graduation from the nursery school, preschool kids should be able to write their names in full; pronounce and spell commonest three-lettered words; make short, clear, and complete sentences; count and write numbers 1 to 50 as part of the academic skills to learn.

2. Life skills
Life skills is another home preschool and pre-K skills your child can learn outside the academic skills. Life skills are abilities for adaptive and positive behaviour that enable humans to deal effectively with the demands and challenges of life. Some of the life preschools include taking turns in talking; comporting himself or herself in public; taking and the following instruction and obeying rules
Others are learning to get along with others, following through on promises; learning to become independent; learning to contribute in family activities and work; engaging meaningfully (perhaps in a playful manner) in an activity for at least 30 minutes); identifying feelings and emotions and knowing when they are expressed; in addition to playing actively with others.
In most cases, life skills will prepare better to learn academic pre-K skills in a preschool. In many cases, sending a child who has a heart issue to preschool makes the child morally worse.
Simple chores, family rules, and sibling love are important, and these are some of the skills that will grow the preschooler into a loving, compassionate adult, long-life learner, future leader expected to live a responsible life.
3. Routine skills
The third basic home preschool and pre-K skill is routine skills. There are routine skills and routine skills. A home pre-schooler should be taught that there is a time and a place for everything. As a parent or home caregiver, have a set time to get up and start the day. Eat breakfast together and train the pre-schooler to learn how to do some morning chores. Some minor routine a preschooler can do include running minor errands like taking the silverware to the kitchen, getting an item from the bedroom.
Have loosely structured play and learning times, but much be complied with, and make sure you plan for exercise, rest and nap times as well.
Routine skills help a pre-schooler to have something to look forward to and bring the family together in unity, sharing, and cooperation.
Routine skills many a time are either ignored or delayed. One of the reasons for such is when there is a nanny or home babysitter to provide childcare services in the kid’s home always.
Another reason is parents’ regard for the child to be too young to learn routine or life skills. The earlier a home pre-schooler is taught to learn both routine and life skills, the better for the teacher and the child.
