Our Philosophy

While we strongly believe in the philosophy that children learn through play, our well-trained staff also believe in preparing your child for later school success. We plan daily experiences that will help your child develop a positive self-esteem, promote independence and help them develop physiological, cognitive, and socio-emotional learning. Our preschool program offers a safe, supportive, child-centered environment that provides both individual and group experiences. This multi-sensory hands-on approach to engagement is fun and instills a love of learning. Your child must be toilet trained by the start of classes.

Kinder- Richment ClubKinder-Richment Club

Clarendon Hills Park District is pleased to announce a new enrichment program for 4’s and 5’s – aptly called Kinder-Richment Club. This program can be an extension of your child’s day whether in a Four Year Old preschool or a morning Kindergarten class or as an afternoon four year old preschool class. The curriculum is designed to enable children to continue to develop at their individual pace in a nurturing environment that encourages exploration. Come play and learn with us through play-based learning centers, music time, outdoor discovery and practice with Fundations – the phonics program used in the local school districts. All the components of Kinder-Richment support a deeper connection to science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics (STEAM).
