Sing and Play

Sing and Play is a parent-toddler class designed specifically for young learners, 18 months and older. During the class, children can sit comfortably on mom or dad's lap, and gently ease into a class setting. Through familiar, action based songs, short teacher-led stories, and object lessons, visual stimulation, and group participation, children begin the process of learning how to behave in a group setting and how to interact with children next to them. They grow in their ability to listen and attend and practice following directions and making predictions. Sing and Play sessions begin with a small group circle time and then move into large motor free play time utilizing gym equipment. Sing and Play is a free class that requires no registration or commitment. Come and play each week or whenever is convenient. Siblings are always welcome!


Please note that Sing and Play will not meet on Wed., Nov. 27, Weds., Dec. 25 and Jan. 1, and Wed., Apr. 15. The last Sing and Play class for this school year is Wed., May 20.




The preschool program is designed to prepare a child for Kindergarten and beyond. In following with the State of Illinois guidelines, children must be age-appropriate for the class on or before the Sep. 1 State of Illinois deadline. This learning environment includes an integrated thematic curriculum. Each theme is drawn from Bible stories and academic themes, and is explored through the use of learning centers with related activities. While the daily schedule offers both freedom of movement and freedom of choice, it also includes activities that are more structured. These varied experiences allow each child to develop his or her own unique approach to learning as well as learning expected classroom participation.




The Kindergarten program offers two alternatives. Kindergarten meets five mornings per week. KindergartenALL meets Monday through Friday afternoon in addition to the five mornings. Both programs follow the goals and objectives established for Kindergarten. In KindergartenALL the children will explore, reinforce, and build on skills introduced during morning sessions.
