Little Learners Preschool

Our Curriculum & Philosophy

Little Learners Preschool provides a safe and nurturing learning environment that embraces all children and their diverse learning styles, needs and interests.  Developmentally-appropriate instruction is provided by caring instructors in an environment that values social, cultural, and linguistic diversity while fostering a love of learning.

Our curriculum is guided by the Illinois Early Learning Guidelines for Children Birth to Age 3 and by the Illinois Early Learning and Development Standards focusing on the development of the whole child.  Our instructors offer unique learning experiences that are play-based to promote social-emotional, physical, language and cognitive development.

Children participate in a variety of learning opportunities designed to develop independence, problem-solving, critical-thinking, creativity, self-expression as well as social and academic skills.  Classroom interest centers and activities offer rich exposure to literacy, mathematics, science & technology, social studies, the arts, and English language acquisition to prepare our preschoolers for elementary school and beyond.
