Preschool 2023-2024

Preschool 2023-2024 (2 and 3 Day Options) 
AGE: 3 years by Sep 1, 2023 and toilet-trained.

Our Preschool program offers your child an introduction to structured learning and socialization using educational games, art, music, and stories along with unstructured play in a theme-based curriculum. The class emphasizes color, shape, and number recognition along with fine motor and social skills. The optional third day extends the curriculum in a smaller group setting in order to provide more individualized attention. The third day of the program is held at Springbrook Nature Center, which provides many opportunities for outdoor learning activities.

This program will enhance the curriculum being taught in the Itasca Park District T/TH classes. It includes theme based STEM activities, instructive busy bags, independent math packs, and alphabet readiness curriculum. Students will use the outdoor facilities at the Nature Center each day to extend what has been learned in the classroom. (CC)
