20 Best Tips

Updated Guidelines for Preschool and Kindergarten Community

This post may contain affiliate or advertiser links. Read my full disclosure policy .

I’ve been completely amazed at how the Preschool and Kindergarten Community has grown over the last few years. What started as something to document the weekly happenings in our house has been a fun way for others to connect and share their experiences and also have other families share all of the creative things they are doing at home.

In order to have everything all in one place, here are the updated guidelines for linking up each week:

By linking up, you are granting permission for me to share your wonderful ideas and pictures with others in periodic show-and-tell posts.

To help other moms quickly and easily find things, can I ask you all to help out a bit? Here are a few things that would be SO very helpful in better connecting and sharing with each other.

1. Please be sure to link to your exact blog post when sharing a link {not just directly to your blog}. We don’t want to miss what you are sharing! If you need help on how to do this, you can read more about permalinks here.

2. Be specific in your ‘title’. Leave either your blog name or theme and provide an age range for your activities. Something a little like this:

Police Officer Theme {ages 4-5}

3. Please link up posts that are ONLY preschool and kindergarten related. I know that there are so many things we can share with each other, but this linky is specifically to share preschool and kindergarten fun ~ not recipes, giveaways, etc… Even after the linky closes, other moms can go back through the links and visit posts, but are looking for teaching/learning ideas for their kiddos. :)

4. In your post, please link back to the Preschool and Kindergarten Corner. You can use a text link or even grab the button coding from my sidebar to place the button in your post. Having the button in your post will also help other moms find even more great ideas to use with their children when they are able to browse around.

5. Visit others!! As much as I would love to, I don’t always have time to visit every single one of you each week. I try to visit as many as I can, but I don’t always get to leave comments either. When you link up each week, can you take a few minutes and visit the person who linked up just before you and say ‘hi’ and leave a note of encouragement. It’s a fun way to meet a few more moms and also encourage them at the same time. This isn’t a requirement, but we all know what a short note means when we’ve worked hard on sharing with others. :)

6. If you continue to link up without linking back to this site – or if you are linking to another linky that you are hosting, your link will be deleted.

I hope that these requests don’t offend others ~ I’ve just had a lot of spam posts linking up lately and want to have Preschool and Kindergarten Community be something that is helpful and easy to navigate for others. I appreciate all of you that participate each week and the ideas that you share with all of us!

    This is great, Jolanthe – thanks so much for taing the time to do this!! There are sooooo mnay neat ideas every week…….Preschool Corner is my favorite Linky to check out – I don’t always have the time to link in but I LOVE to look around and see everyone’s super ideas!!
    I’m starting BFIAR with Channing in January (trying to get into the “Aussie” school year as He’ll be most likely starting there in Jan 2013)…….so I’m loving all the ideas I’m getting :-)
    Thanks again for everything you do!

  2. I’ve noticed recently there’s been more spam posts in general to linkies.  I’ve certainly been having that, and it’s been annoying me.  That, and people aren’t linking up and looking at other people’s stuff as much as they used to.  Now they just treat it as a way to get promotion.  Sigh.

    • I agree. And for me, I don’t link up unless I feel like I can go around to visit at least 1 or 2 other sites. Thanks for putting up these guidelines, Jolanthe, so that people don’t just come here to get hits and readers just to start up their own linkies.

    I came across Preschool Corner a year ago and loved looking at everyone’s ideas.  It encouraged me to make my own blog… so thank you!  I know I’m not a homeschooling mom… but a daycare provider/former teacher… and I go through the list every week in search of another “great” idea.  It amazes me how many creative people are out in our world and so willing to share their time and talent with us.  I’ve gained so much looking at everyone’s posts…. so a big thank you to everyone who so generously shares!

  4. Thank you for all the great ideas that you share! Thank you for sharing these updates today. I have only linked up once as all of this preschool stuff is new to me. I hope I did it right the one time I did it. I am loving seeing all of these great ideas! Thank you for inspiration and encouragement! You rock!
