Children’s Circle is a full day preschool program for children ages 15 months to 6 years old which combines flexibility and high-quality teaching to create a unique program geared to the diverse needs of busy families. Children’s Circle is licensed by the State of Illinois, meeting or exceeding state standards for health, safety and staff training.
A day at Children’s Circle reflects our philosophy that children learn best through meaningful interactions with the world around them. Learning is an active process, whether it happens during a teacher-guided group experience or during free choice play. At Children’s Circle, our mission is to provide a secure place for your child to interact with the world, incorporating hands-on and teacher-facilitated experiences that are meaningful and relevant to your child’s stage of development.
The Children’s Garden
Children’s Circle students grow in more ways than one! The Children’s Garden, adjacent to the preschool playgrounds, is our special project. From carrots to sunflowers, our children plant, nurture, and enjoy the bounty and lessons to be learned in this beautiful outdoor “classroom.” Stop in for fresh herbs and beans from our bean teepee in July!
