Early Childhood, Preschool & Childcare

Preschool
Our preschool program is for children 3, 4 and 5 years of age. We encourage the growth and development of your child at his/her individual level through varied activities and experiences. Our goal is to supplement and extend early home experiences in an environment planned to further each child’s development through play and learning with their peers.

Preschool Registration

Funtime Junction Registration
In our DCFS licensed child care program, every child will enjoy a "home away from home" experience. We visit the gymnasium daily and venture outside, weather permitting.  There is a $35 non-refundable registration fee per family due at sign-up then annually each September.  Use us as much or as little as you need. Lunch and snacks are provided daily. For more information on our daycare program, please contact Early Childhood Director, Heather Carlson at 630.834.8970 or HCarlson@invillapark.com. 

Children in our Preschool and Funtime Junction Programs will learn through interactive play. Basic skills are taught that will develop their creativity as well as their educational and emotional well-being by qualified and caring instructors in a friendly atmosphere. The program’s curriculum is geared to teach children the skills they will need to enter Kindergarten. Our programs are licensed by the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services.
