St. Gregory's Preschool was established in 2006 as a way for our parishioners to give back to the community we love. Our inclusive and nurturing environment blends academic progress with creativity, social and moral development, and play.
St. Gregory's Preschool offers a safe, fun-filled, and academically complete early education experience that is loved by children, appreciated by parents, and respected by local school teachers and administrators.
St. Gregory's Preschool program features:
St. Gregory's team of experienced child development professionals is led by a fully credentialed director who holds a master's degree in early childhood education as well as a teaching certificate from the State of Illinois. Our staff members:
We teach The Creative Curriculum for Preschool Program® program which is used by Deerfield District 109. Jolly Phonics® gives each child a strong foundation in reading and literacy, while our balanced curriculum includes valuable and fun math and science experiences. With regularly scheduled time for free play, our program helps foster growth, nurture success, and build self-esteem on several physical, social, and academic levels.
Our multi-aged program is designed to nurture the overall development of the individual child in an atmosphere of sharing, inclusion and support.
The curriculum has been created to provide separate, age-appropriate lessons targeted to the developmental needs of growing children. All children share classroom space and teachers, enjoying socially important and fun opportunities to play and learn together.
Supervised free play is scheduled daily, and circle time, songs, and stories are an essential part of the program. Large motor skill development activities are integrated through indoor play in our large multi-purpose area and outdoor play at nearby Mitchell Park.
