Get Your Preschooler Ready For Kindergarten With EmbarK12 ~ Giveaway

This post brought to you by K12, the leader in online education. All opinions are 100% mine.

There is nothing more rewarding than seeing your little one gain a new skill. As a parent you see them work at it and work at it offering support every step of the way, but it just doesn’t click. Until one day it does. One day suddenly it all comes together and learning starts to fall in line. 

Well, at least that’s the way it has been with my daughter — every step of the way. And it is panning out to be the same way with my toddler. From color recognition all the way to starting to read — one day I feel like a broken record repeating the same lessons — then poof, they don’t need any help. (Sniff, sniff — proud and wistful in the same breath.)

But here’s the thing. I am just a mom. Even though I am my girls’ first teacher, I am not a teacher by nature. Somethings are easy for me to teach, others I just don’t know what to do. That’s why I like EmbarK12, which gives me the tools I need to teach my girls from the ground up — using easy language they understand and building to the harder stuff. (Because I have a bad tendency to start in the middle, forgetting that they have no idea where I am coming from.)

Embark12 Comprehensive Kindergarten Readiness

EmbarK12 is designed for preschool age students (ages 3-6) and is filled with skills for Kindergarten readiness. What’s great about this program is that while all of the resources for mom and dad are online, with EmbarK12 Comprehensive- Online and hands-on preschool program for your early learner the lessons include both online and hands-on materials — a LOT of hands on materials. (20 books!) 


With more than 1,200 appropriate lessons, the EmbarK12 program encompasses 18 thematic units, which are each broken down into materials covering six subjects: math, language arts, science, social studies, music and art.

One skill that I just can’t seem to help my child master is telling time. So I was thrilled to see that one of the 18 units is telling time. Within the time-telling unit there are lessons that range from what is a clock to learning about the parts of the clock and how to tell time. The lessons include online videos, craft activities and even a themed book. 

With all of these lessons broken down for me in the parent guide, I can teach time telling at home to my student likes like a teacher with an all-encompassing lesson. 

After digging through the box of supplemental materials, K opted to go straight for the online materials to start her studying. She gets very into the computer materials.

Even though EmbarK12 is geared toward ages 3-6, everything big sister does little sister wants to too. And while telling time is still too advanced for a two year old, it won’t be long until she is demanding control over the mouse. Already she is enjoying the books along side big sis. And since she will start preschool in the fall, I am looking forward to her growing into this program too. 

For now Sissy is happy to listen to the online lessons that are read aloud, and who knows maybe she is picking up more than I think.


EmbarK12 is the winner of five distinguished awards and used in national childcare centers. Available by year-long subscription, the online portion is $59.99 and the Comprehensive, which includes the online portion and all of the supplemental offline materials, is $286.

  2. Wow, this is really amazing. I play with my kids all day so this would give us a lot to do!

  3. Colton would excel with the help of Embark k12 because I love to reinforce what he is learning in the classroom. He will be starting Kindergarten next year and this prize would be awesome to help us with our activities at home and over the summer :-)

  4. The schools here are using Ipads and Laptops in Kindergarten!! I think this would be great helping my son learn more technology as well as learning the basics, and getting him ready for kindergarten.

  5. Mary Happymommy says:

    My daughter would excel with this because she’s very eager to learn to read.

  6. This is exactly the stage that we’re in right now! I tried homesschool preschool this year – but ended up that my schedule at work changed to nearly full-time, meaning that we’re stuck hoping that he’s ready for Kindergarten next year. Meanwhile, we’re doing as many activities as possible!

  7. Carolyn M. says:

    My granddaughter wants to learn everything so this would be great for her.

    my granddaughter was born as a preemie n she has struggled to get where she is n they have no preschool where she lives n this would help get a head start before kindergarten..

    My nephew is at the age where he is learning very quickly and easily. I want him to get as much in right now as he can before he starts school.

  20. Karen Drake says:

    This would be great for my daughter because she loves anything that has to do with the computer and she could learn everything she needs to know before Kindergarten.
