TOS Review ~ Time 4 Learning

t4l_preschool_logo

You didn’t hear any complaining going on around here from Montana when I announced it’s Time 4 Learning.  She loved her Preschool computer time and I loved it too because she didn't realize she was actually learning! Mikayla and Madison eagerly jumped in to assist if she ever got stuck and to play a few games themselves.

Time4Learning is a convenient online educational website that offers games and educational programs for math and language arts for grades Pre-K through 8th. Year after year Homeschool.com selects Time 4 Learning as one of the "Top 100 Educational Websites" for it’s animated and interactive activities, printable worksheets, and detailed reporting.

Initially I enrolled each of the girls, but the older ones never showed any interest so I focused on getting Montana on the computer daily. She received a separate login and password to access her lessons, while I also received a separate login to track skill progress, access records, and more. Montana was able to work  at her age level as well as go a level lower or higher when needed.

Subscription Cost for the program is $19.95 for first child and $14.95 for each additional child per month .

What’s included in the cost:

  • Online Curriculum for Preschool to 8th Grade
  • 1,000+ Student-Paced Animated Lessons
  • Math Exercises & Printable Worksheets
  • Language Arts from Phonics through Reading
  • Science & Social Studies In Most Grade Levels
  • Automated Reporting for Easy Record Keeping
  • Detailed Lesson Plans for Parents
  • Lessons Correlated to State Standards

This program can be used for homeschoolers, after school or summer school programs, preschools and daycares. It is more than just playing simple games, your child is actually learning new skills or brushing up on past learned skills. I am impressed with the program and all that it offers, unfortunately, the price will keep us from subscribing further. If however, I felt that my girls needed an “extra” because of struggles in the math or language art department, I would definitely look to Time 4 Learning as my first resource.

Want to try it out for yourself? Time 4 Learning offers a free 14 day trial of the site which includes  lesson demos, and a  scope and sequence.
