About Our Preschool

Our Preschool program offers a wide variety of opportunities for children between the ages of Almost 3 to 5 years old. Class times, locations, and ages vary to meet our community's needs.

Children are involved in learning activities designed to meet and nurture their growth in all areas of development. Teachers will work one-on-one and in small groups with your child, as they tailor the program to your own child's development. Large group activities also take place to help develop strong social interaction. Our open classroom includes learning areas such as science, math, housekeeping, blocks, art, writing, small and large motor centers. Each area offers ample learning opportunities as children can explore on their own or with a group of friends. Children enrolled in our Pre-K programs prepare for kindergarten and are introduced to the Jolly Phonics reading program which is utilized by D300 kindergarten classes. We encourage strong social and academic learning for younger children through a variety of activities.

To schedule a visit, call Hollie at (847) 428-7131 x2301.

NOTE: In case of inclement weather, Dundee Township Park District daytime classes follow School District 300 cancellations. Please check our website and Facebook page for weather cancellations.
