At the end of the day... did you play?                                             PRESCHOOL

             Learn Through Play

             Our Preschool program is based on a “Learning Through
             Play” philosophy which provides a balanced, progressive
             and child-centered curriculum. Our program offers
             classes for children ages 3 to 5 years of age.
             Mrs. Sandy Solava is the Preschool Director and Lead
             Teacher. She will provide a safe, supportive environment
             for your child’s first school experience. The program
             offers a nurturing environment with stimulating activities
             in creative arts, language and literacy, math, science,
             dramatic play, movement, songs, and outdoor play.
             Children learn best within a curriculum that provides
             developmentally appropriate experiences designed
             to foster cooperation, sharing, respect, and problem
             solving skills. While each child is encouraged to become
             an important member of the class, individuality is also

             The focus of our program is to prepare your child
             emotionally, socially, and cognitively. We encourage the
             children to explore, discover, problem solve, and build
             self-esteem. The program is designed to give your child
             the tools and experiences he/she needs to assure a positive transition to kindergarten and beyond. The
             children are exposed to reading readiness skills, ABCs, 123s, shapes and colors, and the Jolly Phonics
             program.  Special themed parties and events will take place throughout the year.
             The Pleasant Dale Park District Preschool operates from September through May and follows the
             Pleasantdale School District 107 calendar. Price saving options are available by paying by the semester
             or annually. We also offer a discount for a second child enrolled in preschool. Please contact the front
             desk with any tuition questions.
