Catholic Preschool Curriculum (and Kindergarten Curriculum) – Catholic ABCs

Catholic ABCs Preschool Curriculum: Exciting Update!

The new program, which is a partnership with Angie Kauffman from Real Life at Home, was launched on August 8, 2022. It is a greatly expanded and improved version of the old Catholic ABCs book.
Catholic ABCs is a hand-on curriculum full of crafts, printables, worksheets, saints, learning, and more for preschoolers and kindergartners. There are over 2,000 pages that you can use for multiple school years!
Don’t worry – we know children already get plenty of screen time. The online program is for parents and teachers to access to get the materials to use with children. The online portion is not for students, but rather a huge resource of materials for parents and teachers to use.

The program is more inclusive than ever, featuring printable crafts, worksheets, activities, and more, making it a great option for teaching Religion to preschoolers and also kindergartners! Much of the program would even be perfect for most first graders, as well as a great supplement for 2nd graders.

What People Are Saying about the Catholic ABCs Curriculum

Wow! What a great curriculum collection! I spent several years in the public school setting working in kindergarten. For my own kids I wanted to use a strong curriculum similar to what I used there, yet wanted it to be knitted together with aspects of the faith. This does just that. The variety ensures each individual student can be reached. There is plenty of material to use with my little ones for two years of preschool and on into kindergarten. I am so glad I found it as I begin teaching my first preschooler!” – Debbie B.

We just completed our first week of preschool with my 3-year-old and he absolutely loved it! He kept asking if we were doing preschool over the weekend, which was so precious to hear since this is my first time homeschooling! There is soo much included in this curriculum, so it is very customizable to my child’s age and development. It took a little while to go through it all to figure out what I needed to start but once I figured that out lesson planning became so simple because of the provided lists. Thank y’all for putting this all together and for making it so cohesive.” – Jacqueline K.

This program is such a blessing! Thank you for sharing your talent and gifts with the rest of us mommas.” – Vinessa C.
