The Mt. Prospect Park District Preschool program has been the first step toward school for many children for more than 55 years. Over the years we have grown from just 1 class to 13. Our preschool program’s philosophy is the basis of all learning is experience.

We provide a learning environment in which children can make discoveries, solve problems, think independently and play cooperatively. We understand children progress through the same stages of development but at an individual pace. We welcome the opportunity to provide activities that capture children’s interests and capabilities.

Open a window of opportunity for your child today! Our Li’l Mountaineers program encompasses social, emotional and creative development in a complete learning environment that parents and children rave about. 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 but not limited to 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.

Li’l Mountaineers Preschool Program provides an ideal early learning environment. Young children learn through active exploration of their surroundings through both free-play and structured activities. Our curriculum is tailored to both group and individual lessons. Preschool teachers and families work together to ensure an optimal learning experience.
