Default Preschool Curriculum Kits

Do any of you purchase monthly preschool curriculum kits for your daycare? If so what ones and why do you like them or dislike them. Im looking for one that includes the supplies for the activities. I have 2 toddlers and a preschooler. Any info will be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance

I used Mother Goose Time for a year and then have reused that curriculum on a 3 or 4 year rotation. I liked it. My current kids are a little too advanced for it right now. So I've been making my own recently to keep them engaged.

I've ordered just one month of funshine. It was similar to MGT, but didn't seem to offer as much and I would still be planning extra activities. I think it may have been a great program for just a couple days a week.

MGT had activites for every day of the week and I tended to add to it too.

Those are the only 2 prepackaged curriculums I have used.

I used Carol's Affordable Curriculum my first year. It included everything except glue, crayons, scissors, etc. It was pretty cheap and easy to use. I then switched to Funshine. It cost more, but had more to offer than Carol's. Now I use a mix of Funshine and my own (yay for pinterest!). The box stuff is a lot of cookie cutter. I try to avoid that, but I do like to use it for direction following. I laminated all the games, cards, colors, letters, etc from Funshine so I could reuse them over and over. It's also nice to get the ideas and expand from there.
