The Mt. Prospect Park District Preschool program has been the first step toward school for many children for more than 55 years. Our Li’l Mountaineers program encompasses social, emotional and creative development in a complete learning environment. Our format is structured to stimulate receptiveness to language, art, science and music-without being confining. Creative play materials and the freedom to experiment enhance the learning process, and most importantly, our certified teaching staff focuses on helping each child develop a positive self-image.

Daily activities include circle time, large motor movement, small motor movement, theme days, special event days, math centers, science centers, dramatic play, art center, reading center, block center, and much more.
