Planning Your Visit

Preschool childcare and early childhood programming are continuing as scheduled under DCFS rules and regulations. We recognize that in-person learning and socialization are especially critical during a child’s early learning experiences. Please know that your child’s safety is our top priority. Before the school year begins, our teachers and staff will participate in extensive health and safety practices training as outlined by CDC and state guidelines.

Our COVID Safety Protocols

  • Children will be assigned to classrooms and stay with the same group each day at all times of the day.
  • Toys and other high-touch surfaces will be regularly disinfected and rotated throughout the day.
  • Per DCFS, our shared mealtime practices have changed from family style to prepared plates to reduce the spread of germs.
  • All staff wear face coverings at all times. Children will wear a face covering as practicable but not when eating or nap.
  • During naps, children will sleep six feet apart and be positioned alternating head to toe or toe to toe.

  • Collaboration with families to ensure your child’s success
  • All meals and snacks included
  • Nut-safe and allergy sensitive environment
  • Secure preschool wing
  • In-house field trips to the Historic Wagner Farm and The Grove
  • Special Events – Apple Stand, Airplane Trip and more

Early Childhood Enrichment programs focus on extra learning opportunities for 3 and 4 year olds. Choose a class or classes focusing on rhyming, math, words, science, storytelling or the alphabet.  There’s something for everyone! Enrichment Programs are offered on a seasonal basis.

A successful early learning experience for your child begins with the Glenview Park District’s Adult-Child programs. These programs help build the 18 month-3 year old child’s comfort level in a group environment to prepare them to attend classes on their own and learn how to function in a more structured environment.

The Glenview Park District’s SOON 2B3 and Enrichment programs offer many opportunities for fun, learning and socialization for toddlers through pre-K. Adult-Child Programs are offered on a seasonal basis.

“Anna loved Park Center Preschool! She didn’t want to miss a minute. Nice and engaged teachers.”

“Great program with amazing teachers.”

“Park Center Preschool is a great place for preschoolers that are curious and eager to learn. They have tons of activities built in daily curriculum that kids would learn about letters and animals and weathers and so much more. Our kid loves to go to school every day and share with us a lot of good memories in school.”

“My son thrived throughout the year at the Glenview Park center preschool. He made so many wonderful friends and all of the teachers and staff were beyond loving and caring towards him. He learned and grew so much educationally, socially and physically (motor skills) over the year. We can’t recommend the park center preschool highly enough.”
