District 197 Preschool programs provide a bridge to school through half and full-day classes that offer rich learning experiences in well-equipped classrooms. All of our caring staff are trained in Early Childhood Education.

Our programs lay the foundation for future school success by encouraging:

  • Personal, social, and physical development
  • Language development
  • Pre-reading skills 
  • Pre-writing skills 
  • Mathematical and scientific thinking (including math curriculum used with the children in the District from age 3 through grade 5)
  • Enthusiasm for social studies, music, and art
