Weaver Interlock vs. Horizons Preschool
 
Currently I have the Horizons preschool curriculum, but from what I read about it and Weaver Interlock and what I saw on both of their first lessons they are the exact same thing. Is this right? If so, why does Weaver Interlock say the curriculum is for preschool and kindergarten, but Horizons has it just for preschool and then another curriculum for kindergarten? I hope this makes sense!

From what I have heard they are exactly the same thing, except weaver doesn't include math or phonics instruction. The horizons program is known for being quite advanced. I know their math moves very quickly. That is probably why it says preschool and K on weaver and only preschool on horizons.

Yes, Horizons is advanced. I would say they're a full year ahead of what the public schools usually do. I haven't used Weaver, but that would be my guess.

Hmmmm...OK, thanks so much for the comments. We used Horizons last year with our 3 year old (now 4 year old), and I'm afraid it's going to be boring for him this upcoming year so I thought I might look in to some other choices. At least it's good to know that he's probably ahead of where he needs to be at this point, and maybe we can just do some of the stuff in his Horizons curriculum that he could benefit a refresher on and supplement with some print outs online or something.
