As a parent, I naturally want what's best for my child - including the best education. I believe, the best education option is homeschooling. You are your child's first teacher! No one else can know your child as well as you - and no one else will have the same level of commitment to your child that you do. Even if you're not sure you will homeschool your child throughout their school years, doing 'preschool-at-home' is a great way for you to get your feet wet, and see what this homeschooling thing is all about!
