Time4Learning Review

Emily and I  had the opportunity to test out Time4Learning an online home education program and we both really enjoyed using it.

Emily loves using Daddy’s laptop to play games (even though that does not really happen that often) and I always try to make sure that the time she does spend at the computer is useful as well as fun.  This program was just that. 

We used the preschool level  and the lessons were perfect for us.  The lessons were broken into themes, such as Alphabet, colors, shapes, Weather, Space, on the farm and many more.  I liked how each theme began with a story or show which introduced the major concepts.  After, that the activities built on the concepts that were introduced.

Emily liked doing the memory games and coloring activities.  I was impressed with how well she worked with the laptop mouse and how simple the site was for her to find her way around.  However some of the activities did require her to hold down the mouse button and move the mouse which was difficult for her to do.

Overall we enjoyed the time we spent exploring Time4Learning together. 

Disclosure: I was provided with a 1 month Time4Learning membership at no cost in order to test the products’ abilities and give my own personal opinions on it. The opinions I have given are mine and may differ from others but were not influenced by the company or the free product provided.

We have been using time4learning for 3+ years now! My boys do love the cartoon based lessons, I even hear them laughing at some of them! I think that it has helped their computer skills as well;) I also really enjoyed your review of the program. I couldn't have started my homeschooling journey with time4learning!

Thanks and Happy Homeschooling!
