Preschool

Three unique sites. One common GOAL.
Create a learner for life.

The Bolingbrook Park District preschool programs, offered for children ages 2 ½ to 5 years of age, focus on educating children in a way that makes learning fun. Experienced teachers create a warm, positive educational environment that fosters a child’s natural creativity and curiosity. Children are engaged in a variety of developmentally appropriate activities that are aligned with state preschool learning standards. We communicate with kindergarten program administrators in the area to ensure that our curriculum prepares our students for success in elementary school.

This preschool preparation program offers young children opportunities for social, intellectual, physical, and emotional growth through a balance of both child-led and teacher-guided play. Our teachers provide nurturing guidance to all children allowing for easier transition through parent/child separation anxiety.

Children 2 ½ – 3 years old have their first positive experiences in a preschool classroom and become comfortable separating from parents for a regular period of time. Development of social skills, large and small motor skills and basic curriculum concepts are a part of your child’s day. Diapers and pull-ups are acceptable, to begin with, but children should be on their way to taking care of their own toileting needs. This class runs 2 days per week.

This program nurtures a 3 year old’s social and emotional growth, and provides a curriculum focusing on letters, numbers, shapes and colors, and the beginning stages of writing. This class runs 2 days per week. Our 3 Year Old Preschool Plus Spanish program exposes children to both English and Spanish with regards to preschool concepts.

In this program, 4 year old’s strengthen relationships with friends and teachers and begin to understand responsibility as they become more self-sufficient. The curriculum focuses on emerging literacy, math, science, creative art and fine motor skills to prepare children for Kindergarten. Our 4 Year Old Preschool Plus Spanish program exposes children to both English and Spanish with regards to preschool concepts.

The Pre-K program is designed for children 4 ½ -5 years old who are ready for additional time in the classroom. This program takes our 4 year old curriculum to the next level with in-depth exposure to pre-literacy, math, self-expression skills and class projects. Bi-monthly field trips, science lab time and cooking classes are built into the cost of the class.
