Preschool (2018-2019)



Belvidere Park District Preschool offers a warm and welcoming place where all children are encouraged to explore and develop at their own pace. We believe that children learn through play with opportunities to explore and experiment every day. Our focus is on the social, emotional, and intellectual growth through problem solving, large and fine motor skills, communication and language, and creativity. Caring teachers will encourage each child to try new things, meet new friends, and promote independence.  (TA)
