Create & Play Preschool Program (Ages 3 – 6)

The Create & Play Preschool Program provides a warm and welcoming environment for children ages 3-6 years old. Our Program incorporates the Illinois Early Learning Standards into our curriculum, including physical, cognitive, social and emotional development. We believe children learn through creative play and many hands on experiences. Phonics is also used to teach literacy skills. Children will become empowered through the use of their words. Our passionate, caring and experienced teachers will make your child’s preschool experience a memorable one. All children must be completely toilet trained prior to attending preschool.
