This mod adds preschool for toddlers it also allows teens and children to build skills while at school and while doing their homework. They will also have more interactions while they are away.
This mod includes the following mods:
Preschool mod: Enroll toddlers into public or private preschool.
Better schools mod: Build skills at school & have more interactions.
Smarter homework mod: Build skills while doing homework.
Online Schooling: Attend school online and do homework online with or without classmates.
This mod adds to EA careers it allows teens and children to learn basic skills, increase motives, and have more choices at school. Each interaction has an advantage and disadvantage. Some interactions will stop your teens/children from gaining skills and character values and some just will decrease needs.
This mod allows your toddlers to go to school and build skills and character values. This will save your sims time of having to teach each toddler and will also give your sims a break.
Note: If your toddler doesn't go to school on time for whatever reason please use the "go to preschool" option when you click on them.
How to Get Started
Click on your toddler sim and look for the "sign up for preschool" option and choose a preschool.
After you have chosen a school you can send them to school at 5:00 AM-10:00 AM they will also TRY to go to school on their own during that time frame.
Each school has benefits and disadvantages but will increase skills, motives, and character values.
There is a high chance that they will come home with moodlets/buffs.
The home school option is just for looks.
Private school students will wear "formal" outfits and public school students will wear "everyday" outfits.
Private school costs $50 daily and public school is free.
Unfortunately, there are no away options since this is not a career. Hopefully, I can find a way around this.
Note: This is not a career so they won't forcefully go exactly on time but they WILL try to go during that time frame.

Attend School Online:
When you click this option it will take your sim out of school for that day and unlock a new option on the computer that will let you attend a lecture. During the lecture, you will build skills and have a chance of getting a promotion at school. You will also gain work performance which will update when you go to school or choose the "do homework" option on your computer. You will have 4 hours to attend your schools' lecture after choosing to attend school online. This means after you clicked "Attend school online" you will have an option to attend the lecture until your 4 hours have passed.
Study & Homework:
In this category, you can study different subjects which is perfect for preparing your teens for college. You can also do your homework online by yourself or with other classmates which requires you to know at least two classmates. When you do homework with classmates you will not only complete your homework but you will also increase your relationship with them.
If you use the attend online option a lot to "homeschool" your child/teen then this is a perfect way for them to find friends. Teens will also have an option to flirt with classmates. The more classmates you know the more options of people you will have to do homework with.
