For twenty years, The Perpetual Preschool has provided teachers and parents with over 50,000 free daily preschool themes, curriculum, preschool lesson plans, and online workshops to further early childhood education.
Daylene has been involved in the education of young children, for over thirty years. Being inspired by her grandmother and kindergarten teacher, she decided to study child development for both her college and masters degree programs. She has taught pre-k children professionally and as a volunteer. She has also taught online ECE courses and workshops since 1998.
Way Back When
In 1997, Daylene became tired of the high cost of purchasing preschool curriculum books to create her preschool lesson plans. Armed with an ancient computer, she locked herself in a room and learned how to create a website. Three months later The Perpetual Preschool was born.
The Perpetual Preschool: First of Its Kind
Early childhood educators could find and share curriculum ideas and preschool lesson plans that worked in their classroom for free. Finally, everything from apple songs to zipper science ideas could be found in one place.
This little endeavor has grown into what you see today. There are over 50,000 free themes, holiday ideas and articles. New content is added continually and will always be free.

In addition to the free curriculum and preschool lesson plans, our online workshops were developed in 1998. We offer 16 classes for early childhood professionals. All of the workshops are cost effective at $16.00 each. They are self-study and will never expire.
