Deerfield Park District's Preschool Program for children 2.5-5 years of age is a developmental program designed so that children learn to play and play to learn. We believe that through play and problem solving, children learn the basic skills necessary to achieve -socially, emotionally, intellectually, physically and creatively. Our well-rounded curriculum includes opportunities in math, science and nature, literacy, language and listening, dramatic play and daily outdoor play (in adjacent, fenced preschool playground and grounds).
Our experienced, dedicated teachers are early childhood educators committed to helping children develop to their fullest potential. We are proud of maintaining a low student-teacher ratio. Specialists in art and music enhance your child's preschool experience; and a drop off program is offered for convenience. An intergenerational program provides a welcome addition to many classrooms. Field trips augment the curriculum.
Since our Preschool Program is housed within our Community Center, on-site "Extend the Day-Play" classes like "Lunch Bunch," "Preschool Enrichment" and more offer extended hours of learning, fun and socialization. Preschoolers signed up for "Lunch Bunch" enjoy supervised lunch and play time in our indoor Treehouse playground or large motor areas. Preschoolers enrolled in "Preschool Enrichment" enjoy songs, crafts, games, motor activities and "specials" such as art, cooking or exercise taught by one of our talented staff.
Our Preschool Program runs from September through May and is followed by 7-Week Summer Day Camp offerings for children three years of age and beyond. For a tour of our Preschool or for more information, call 847-572-2634.
