Preschool Program

Your Child. Our Preschool. A Perfect Match for Learning.

2 Year Old Program
This class is without an adult – so it is best if your child has some experience in one of our early childhood classes. The focus is on socialization, individual growth, and play. All children must be completely toilet trained.

About Our Preschool

Our Preschool offers structured programming for 2, 3 & 4 year olds. Our Preschool Program emphasizes socialization and self-expression through manipulatives, art, music, fine and gross motor skills, and hands-on activities. Socialization (not academics) is our main focus for our 2 & 3 year old program. Our 4 year old program includes academics along with socialization activities.

Our Preschool Program is certified by the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) and all our staff meet the qualifications set forth by this agency. Maximum staff to student ratio is 1:9 for 3 & 4 year old classrooms and 1:8 for 2 year old classrooms. Our classrooms are an even mix of boys and girls.
