The most imporPhoto of Preschool / Child Care Programs in Chicago area, ILtant goals of our preschool curriculum are for children to get along well with others and become enthusiastic learners. We want children to become independent, self-confident, curious learners who can work well with others. We're teaching them how to learn, not just in preschool, but all through their lives. We do this by creating purposeful and productive play experiences that help children grow in all areas.

Our curriculum identifies goals in four areas of development:

* Social / Emotional:  To help children develop independence, self-confidence, and self-control, follow rules and routines, make friends, and learn what it means to be part of a group.

* Physical:  To increase children's large muscle skills-- balancing, running, jumping, throwing  and catching--and use the small muscles in their hands to do tasks like buttoning, stringing beads, cutting, drawing, and writing.

* Cognitive:
 To acquire thinking skills such as the ability to solve problems, to ask questions, and to think logically-- sorting, classifying, comparing, counting, and making patterns--and to use materials and their imagination to show what they have learned.

Through the activities we plan and the way we organize the classroom, select toys andmaterials, plan the daily schedule, and talk with children, we seek to accomplish the goals of our curriculum and give your child a successful start in school.

Our preschool program can help prepare your child for success in school, and in life. New research on the brain and on learning shows how important the early years are in a child's learning and development. What happens in preschool matters a lot.
