Important information for you:

We start up preschool with an Orientation Night in late August.
Preschool begins just after Labor Day and we end our school year the third week of May!



So now you know something about us,
and this is our promise to our preschool parents...

Every day your child will bring something home from school:
* Sometimes it will be in their hands.
* Sometimes it will be in their head.
* Sometimes it will be in their heart.
* And many times it will be all three!


If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call. 
We would be happy to help any way we can.
Just call the preschool at 630.968.3112 EXT 4 or send an email.

Blessings,
Jessica Gade
