Many of these parents have been asking for pre-school educational resources, and Home School Legal Defense Association is taking steps to provide some. In order to assess the need among our members, for a short time we’ll be offering access to a preschool coordinator, June Oberlander. Her excellent book, Slow and Steady Get Me Ready, also will be available for purchase on our publications site.

June Oberlander offers a wealth of insight into preschool education and development. She is a retired kindergarten teacher who worked 19 years in Fairfax County Public Schools in Virginia. Her background also includes teaching science and biology, and leading a kindergarten class in her local church.
