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.

What Fall 2020-2021 Preschool will look like:

Increased classroom and bathroom cleaning & sanitizing especially in high-touch areas.

Tightened sick protocol including parents doing a wellness check before coming to school

Face coverings will be required for students and teachers.

Limited adults will be allowed in the building and preschool classroom.

Outside learning & play time as weather permits. 

Preschoolers will bring their own water bottle.  There will not be snack time to start the school year. 

Students are asked to bring the following supplies which will be kept at school:  8 count crayons, 8 count washable markers, 3 #2 pencils, and 1 glue stick. 

Parent drop off and pick up will be outside the classroom. 

Fewer toys will be in the preschool rooms to allow for physical distancing and cleaning.  Toys will be rotated to keep children engaged. 

Our Preschool Lunch Bunch program will be postponed and re-evaluated in January.

 

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

Practice wearing a face covering and taking it on and off.

Practice handwashing.  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 (we know they’ve been by your side for a while). 

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

Talking to your preschooler, who has been in our rooms before, that the room may look different, but they will still have so much fun.
