If you want to start preparing your child for preschool, kindergarten or even junior school, you need to find preschool worksheets that provide a variety of activities. Literacy, numeracy, reading, writing, drawing, social and natural sciences are some of the areas that children between the ages of 3 and 7 can and should start learning about. Look for variety in the worksheets, as repeating the same exercise over and over will bore your child. Lots of pictures, fun activities and clearly laid out worksheets are what you are looking for. If you're just looking for a few fun pages to keep the kids busy while you cook dinner, then many of the free printable worksheets available will be suitable.
How can a parent start this process? As young as 12 to 18 months, a parent can point out letters seen in daily life while shopping and/or taking walks. Street signs, parking lot markers, store window displays, and library walls may good sources. Point to the letter with the sound it makes BEE, EF, ESS, and JAY are good examples. Buy a couple letter sets, both magnetic and sponge for games; a set of letter flashcards is essential and also some poster board and markers (probably the washable kind is best!)
As is, the sheets on this site are great for beginning letter and shape recognition. One component I believe to be missing from these tracing practice sheets, however, are the lines which mimic writing paper. Having those lines available is an important step toward appropriate letter size and formation when children are actually beginning to write and spell. To combat this, I have simply take a sheet of clear overhead transparency film and drawn the appropriate lines using permanent marker. This clear sheet is then laid over the tracing page.
