K-12.com sent me everything i needed to teach my kids at home. Some people are surprised to hear that yes you can virtual school a 5 and 6 year old.
It's actually pretty easy, the kids learn alot more, and they get to learn on their own schedule.
I have never liked the idea of someone else raising or teaching my kids, they have never EVER had a babysitter, except my mom, because i think no one will ever watch them as well as i can, no one else would guard them with their lives.
We go online for about 4 hours a day and do school work, usually an hour or so at a time, when its time to read we snuggle in bed and read 4-5 books at a time (that's one subject for the day!) I get great quality time with them that's also learning.
Oh, and if you need a computer/printer they will send it to you to borrow for the school year for FREE!
