Early Childhood, Preschool & Childcare

Children in our Preschool and Funtime Junction Child Care 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.  Both programs are licensed by the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services.


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.
