The Glen Ellyn Park District Preschool program is sure to keep active children busy! The Park District Preschool provides a stimulating environment which enhances socialization, cooperative play and fun-filled learning. We are a play-based program that is focused on the idea that children learn the most from the most creative lessons. Games, crafts, songs and stories are all age appropriate and easy to enjoy. The five levels offered by the Glen Ellyn Park District incorporate science, language and motor development in a recreational setting.
Program Philosophy: The Glen Ellen Park District provides a variety of experiences and media to facilitate learning concepts of vocabulary, numbers, shape, form and other cognitive abilities through a play-based atmosphere where children explore and develop. Play serves many developmental purposes. As an activity of intense concentration and involvement, play is a time for problem-solving, sorting out and organizing new ideas, developing an understanding of others and one's own ability to relate to them, and investigating and experimenting with new possibilities.
The daily schedule is a mixture of teacher-directed, child-directed, small and large group activities based around a weekly theme. Children are involved with block building, art materials, music, books, dramatic playing, cooking and more. Children also have monthly visits from the Glen Ellyn Public Library and B#arp Music for Children.
