A Fun Place to Learn & Play!
The Lindenhurst Park District's Engle Junction Preschool provides a program for children ages two and a half through four years of age. We strive to provide a warm, accepting environment where learning is fun. Our experienced teachers offer a variety of developmentally appropriate activities designed to help children learn and grow socially, emotionally, physically, and intellectually. School begins on Tuesday, September 5, and Wednesday, September 6.
Engle Junction Preschool aims to provide a safe and nurturing learning environment where each child is recognized and appreciated.
Our curriculum, guided by the Illinois Early Learning Standards, is founded on the belief that children learn best through creative play and exploration. Our classrooms and curriculum have been carefully designed to promote varied learning experiences. Children participate in individual, small-group, and whole-group activities daily.
We strive to prepare our preschoolers for elementary school by incorporating activities into our program that promote the development of social, emotional, physical, cognitive, and language skills. Our teachers recognize each child's unique learning styles, needs, and interests and work diligently to offer developmentally appropriate learning experiences that are developmentally appropriate considering our students' ages, individual needs, and social and cultural contexts.
