Planning Your Visit

Preschool childcare and early childhood programming are continuing as scheduled under DCFS rules and regulations. We recognize that in-person learning and socialization are especially critical during a child’s early learning experiences. Please know that your child’s safety is our top priority. Before the school year begins, our teachers and staff will participate in extensive health and safety practices training as outlined by CDC and state guidelines.

Our COVID Safety Protocols

  • Children will be assigned to classrooms and stay with the same group each day at all times of the day.
  • When a child arrives to school, staff will take temperature of adults and children with a no-touch thermometer at the entrance. Temperatures will be logged on the sign-in/out sheet. Any child with a temperature of 100.4 or higher will not be allowed to participate.
  • Toys and other high-touch surfaces will be regularly disinfected and rotated throughout the day. We will not be using sensory tables and other materials that are difficult to clean.
  • Each child will be given his/her own supply box for crafts and activities.
  • Per DCFS, our shared mealtime practices have changed from family style to prepared plates to reduce the spread of germs.
  • All staff wear face coverings at all times. Children will wear a face covering as practicable but not when eating or nap.
  • During naps, children will sleep six feet apart and be positioned alternating head to toe or toe to toe.

Early Childhood Enrichment programs focus on extra learning opportunities for 3 and 4 year olds. Choose a class or classes focusing on rhyming, math, words, science, storytelling or the alphabet.  There’s something for everyone! Enrichment Programs are offered on a seasonal basis. 

A successful early learning experience for your child begins with the Glenview Park District’s Adult-Child programs. These programs help build the 18 month-3 year old child’s comfort level in a group environment to prepare them to attend classes on their own and learn how to function in a more structured environment.

The Glenview Park District’s SOON 2B3 and Enrichment programs offer many opportunities for fun, learning and socialization for toddlers through pre-K. Adult-Child Programs are offered on a seasonal basis.
