About the Program
The Arlington Heights Park District preschool program provides age-appropriate curriculum to develop a child’s love of learning. Our play-based curriculum is provided in a safe, nurturing environment which allows the children opportunities to grow socially, emotionally, intellectually and physically. Children participate in a variety of activities everyday including art, music, movement, dramatic play, math, science, block play, story time and group discussions. With the guidance of the area school districts, we strive to prepare children for kindergarten. Our program is designed to give your child the tools and experiences they need to assure a positive transition from preschool to kindergarten.
Some ongoing skills emphasized throughout our two-year program are recognition and printing of first name with upper and lower case letters, naming basic colors and shapes, and reciting numbers 1-20.

Our instructors are kept informed of current trends in education by attending early childhood workshops and conferences throughout the year. Our teachers help the children develop new interests, learn good work habits, follow directions, socialize, share and establish self-direction.
