A New Standard of Preschool in Glenview

Park Center Preschool is a full day program running year round Monday through Friday. We are guided by a “learn through play” philosophy giving children opportunities to discover, problem solve and build self-esteem. Children receive carefully planned guidance while exploring the environment. The 2’s program helps children gain independence, communication skills and both fine and gross motor abilities. The 3’s program focuses on social, emotional, physical and intellectual development. The 4’s program finds creative ways to challenge our students while preparing them for a smooth transition to kindergarten.

We offer the best value for the highest quality:

  • Curriculum aligned with Illinois Early Learning Standards and public schools systems
  • Handwriting Without Tears component
  • Classrooms differentiate to accommodate the diversity of learners
  • 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 visitors and field trips to Historic Wagner Farm and The Grove

Hear What People are Saying About Us

“Our son attended the Park Center Preschool for two years and we are forever grateful for everything his teachers and the entire team did for him! We transferred from another school close by which he was never able to get used to. I was blown away to find out that he was looking forward to going to school every morning in no time. Everyone was always attentive, supportive, and patient with his journey at his pace of becoming more independent, developing communication skills, learning how to navigate friendships, how to utilize the power of words, and most importantly how to share with his friends. He is ready for the next chapter, and we could have not done it without his teachers at the Park Center Preschool!”

“Park Center Pre-School is hands down the best childcare center in the area! The teachers are excellent. They are very attentive and compassionate and treat your children as if they were their own. The directors are wonderful – very approachable, professional, and responsive, and always do their best to help you in any way they can! The facility is bright, secure, and clean. The playground is amazing and there are plenty of age-appropriate toys and supplies in each classroom. My daughter LOVES it there and I love knowing that my child is being cared for and taught by top-notch teachers at a fantastic Park Center Preschool. Check it out. You’ll love it too!!”

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

“We are forever grateful to Park Center Preschool for all they have done to help our son grow during his time there. He learned about planets to raising chickens and everything in between. They took our 3-year-old toddler and helped him grow into a Kindergarten-ready child. This has truly been a great experience for our whole family!”

“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.”
