Preschool

Get your kids ready for kindergarten by enrolling them in our structured preschool classes.  Byron Forest Preserve District Preschool activities will provide for and assist in your child’s social and emotional development and will include kindergarten readiness skills.  Preschool can provide an invaluable experience for children by dealing with groups of children their own age, learning to share and play together and to respond to loving adults other than their parents.  There are periods of free play when they pursue activities in which they are most interested, story time to learn to listen attentively and enjoy stories, periods of physical activity, and an introduction to the alphabet and numbers. Songs, games, and finger plays are also taught.  Nature study and outdoor activities are included in the curriculum as well.

The Tuesday/Thursday classes are geared toward 3 year-olds and younger 4 year-olds and the Monday/Wednesday/Friday classes are geared toward 4 year-olds and younger 5 year-olds.  Children must be at least 4 years old to attend the three-day class.  They must be at least 3 years old to attend the two-day class.  Children must be potty trained. Immunization records are required.  You may register your child at anytime throughout the year if your child’s birthday is later in the year.

If you have any questions about the curriculum or if you would like to see the classrooms and meet the teacher, please contact Crystal Frisk at crystalfrisk@byronforestpreserve.com or 815-234-8535 ext. 205.
