The Wheeling Park District Preschool is guided by the philosophy of “learning through play”. Through activities in art, games, storytelling, cooking, movement, and songs, children develop self-control, physical coordination, and social skills. Children are exposed to letters, numbers, colors, shapes, and readiness skills in an encouraging, nurturing setting.

The Wheeling Park District Preschool provides a secure and supportive environment for developing a love for school.

2020-2021 School Year

We are looking forward to the beginning of the 2020-21 school year on September 8 and welcoming our students back in a safe and healthy manner, but we know that this year will look different than past years. We are in the process of finalizing our parent handbook but wanted to provide you with some of the changes and modifications we have put into place in the development of a school reopening plan. That being said we have set the following goals:

  1. Implement and adhere to all relevant health and safety recommendations/requirements of the Illinois Department of Public Health.
  2. Provide as normal an in-person learning environment as possible to meet the physical, social, emotional, and academic needs of all students.
  3. Plan ahead for any interruptions or changes that may occur during the school year.

Health and Safety Procedures

Thank you for your patience and understanding. Changing requirements as well as planning for the unknown has been a challenge, as we are sure it has been for your family. We will keep you informed as information becomes available. A parent communication meeting will be scheduled for August, before the first day of school, to provide more information and answer any additional questions.
