A preschooler's education - is it homeschooling?

I was watching some kids doing some great online preschool activities and their parents, all of whom are regular schooling families, talked about the homeschool education that they were giving to their kids. I thought it was weird.

But I loved the preschool website that they were using. I quote from it's description:

The Time4Learning preschool program combines technology, animated characters, original stories and fun music to inspire a love of learning in the littlest e-learners. Ed Mouse and his friends guide children through more than forty topics such as numbers, letters, rhymes, self, time, music and colors.

Time4Learning provides a solid standards-based foundation for Kindergarten readiness. Time4Learning's preschool program is divided into two distinct educational levels and recurring practice is provided in concepts that include ordering, classifying, syllables, patterns, rhymes, colors, and number and letter recognition.
