Homeschool for preschool

Our son is a little young for preschool yet I can't help thinking about it anyways. My husband and I would like to give it a go until we get close to kindergarten and then reassess from there. 


I also realize it's a little nuts bc the majority of us didn't have formal schooling until kindergarten and some until first grade and we (for the most part) turned out just fine. The idea of spending $500+ per month for two days a week of preschool at two years old also blows my mind when we can do all of the same things at home with/without our friends and with much more flexibility.


So, that said, what do y'all think about curriculums for preschoolers? I obviously am not interested in anything that is extremely structured but I'd love a centralized place to get coloring sheets and ideas as well as a basic outline of what should be learned from ages 2-5.
