Early Childhood Program
Early Childhood Program is a multi-aged preschool program that provides educational experiences for young children ages three to five years old that are residents of District 25. We offer experiences for students that are typically developing, at-risk of learning challenges and have special educational needs. All students have an opportunity to play and learn together in an accepting and engaging environment using a developmentally-appropriate approach to instruction.

We are a proud member district of Northwest Suburban Special Education Organization. Their mission is to propel students with special needs to be actively engaged citizens through dynamic family, school, and community partnerships. Every year we partner with NSSEO to survey parents with students receiving special education services in our district. This survey provides valuable feedback on programs, support systems, and communication. In addition to helping us improve our programs, it also helps NSSEO tailor family-based supports. We will reach out when the next school year's survey becomes live.
