My oldest didn't go to public school until K and my 4 year old won't, either (if she goes at all).

I just make sure they're able to read, write, do simple math, and have a basic understanding of time, holidays, and that sort of thing before starting K. Other than that, I just focus on their interests, find books at the library or videos online that are relevant to what we're talking about, incorporate their interests into crafts, point out real-life examples, play educational games, ask lots of questions, go for nature walks, and that sort of thing. My 4 year old recently asked for more, however, so we do *maybe* 30 minutes of structured learning whenever she asks (usually 3-4 times a week).

I think the most important thing is to just have fun.
