  • Preschool at Bolingbrook Park District

  • The Bolingbrook Park District preschool program, offered for children ages 2 1/2 to 5 years of age, focuses on educating children in a way that makes learning fun. We communicate with kindergarten program administrators in the area to ensure that our curriculum is in line with the expectations for children entering kindergarten programs. Our goal is to help children reach their potential while they learn and grow socially, emotionally, physically and intellectually. We encourage creativity and curiosity, which fosters strong self-esteem and a love of life-long learning.

  • Three Unique Sites. One Common Goal. Create a Learner for Life.

    Our Stepping Stones preschool programs are located at both the Bolingbrook Recreation & Aquatic Complex (200 S. Lindsey Lane) and the Annerino Community Center (201 Recreation Drive). Our nature-based Seedlings preschool program is located at the Hidden Oaks Nature Center (419 Trout Farm Road). These engaging programs differ in their approach to learning, though they do follow the same academic curriculum goals. Find out more about our curriculum in the registration packet.

    Soon 2B3
    Children 2 ½ - 3 years old gain confidence in a new classroom setting for their positive first experience in school and become comfortable separating from parents for a longer and more regular period of time.

    3-Year Old Program
    This program nurtures a 3 year old’s social and emotional growth through self-awareness activities such as making an All About Me Book, learning to make their own decisions, sharing, problem solving and communicating with peers.

    4-Year Old Program
    In this program, 4 year olds strengthen relationships with friends and teachers and begin to understand responsibility as they become more self-sufficient. They experience literature in a new way by creating an Alphabet Book and a Portfolio Book throughout the year..

    Pre-K Program
    The Pre-K program prepares children 4 ½ - 5 years old who are ready for additional time in the classroom to prepare for a successful full-day Kindergarten experience.

    English/Spanish Program
    Children from Spanish or English speaking homes are welcome to register for this preschool class. The teachers, fluent in both languages, will focus on our regular preschool curriculum while teaching the children the alphabet, numbers, colors, shapes etc. in Spanish and in English..
