I Love Learning Preschool

The Grayslake Park District offers preschool for Young 3 Year Olds, 3 Year Olds, and 4 Year Olds. I Love Learning Preschool focuses on cognitive, social, emotional, and physical development to ensure that each child progresses to his/her fullest potential. Our preschool program will help build your child’s love for learning!

Philosophy

At I Love Learning Preschool, our goal is to develop a love of learning in a safe and nurturing environment where each child and family is recognized and appreciated.

I Love Learning Preschool strives to prepare our preschoolers for elementary school by including activities into our program that promote development of social, emotional, physical, cognitive, and language skills. Our curriculum is founded on the belief that children learn best through creative play and exploration. Therefore our classrooms and curriculum have been carefully designed to promote varied learning experiences. Children participate in individual, small group, and whole group activities on a daily basis.

Fees & Payment Policy

Tuition payments are based on the total number of school days divided into nine equal monthly installments. Participants are required to make the first (September) and last (May) month’s installments at the time of registration. The last month’s tuition payment is used as a security deposit. Subsequent payments are due on the first of each month, beginning October 1. Tuition payments not received by the tenth of the month will incur a $25 late fee. Tuition payments not received by the end of the month will result in the removal of the child from the program and the May tuition payment will be applied to that month.

No prorated fees will be given for partial month’s attendance or withdrawal. The last month’s tuition payment paid at the time of registration is non-refundable if a refund request is made after October 1. If a refund request is made before October 1, a full refund is granted (less a $100 service charge). All refund requests must be made in writing. Refund forms are available at the Recreation Center.
