Preschool

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.

 

About the Instructors

Skilled professionals schooled in early childhood and/or elementary education teach the preschool program. 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.

Policies:

  • Children in preschool must be toilet-trained; pull-ups are not allowed
  • Children must be 3 by September 1 to enroll in 3-4 year old preschool
  • Children must be 4 by September 1 to enroll in 4-5 year old preschool

How you can help your preschooler prepare for the school year?

Practice hand washing.  Sing Twinkle Twinkle Little Star or the Alphabet Song to help them understand washing for 20 seconds. Practice sneezing or coughing into their elbow, shirt or tissue. 

Explain keeping their hands to themselves and not touching other friends. 

Drive or walk by their preschool building and point out the door they will be going in for school. 

Talk about what it’s like to separate from mom or dad and how much fun they will have!

Discuss how important it is to let a teacher or parent know if they are not feeling well.
