Engle Junction Preschool

All Aboard...

It is the goal of Engle Junction Preschool to provide a safe and nurturing learning environment where each child is recognized and appreciated.  Our curriculum along with the help and instruction of Creative Curriculum is founded on the belief that children learn best through creative play and exploration.  Our classrooms and curriculum have been carefully designed to promote varied learning experiences.  Children participate in individual, small group, and whole group activities on a daily basis.

Engle Junction Preschool strives to prepare our preschoolers for elementary school by incorporating activities into our program that promote the development of social, emotional, physical, cognitive, and language skills set by the Illinois Early Learning Standards and Creative Curriculum.  Our teachers recognize the unique learning styles, needs, and interests of each child and work diligently to offer learning experiences that are developmentally appropriate considering the students' age, individual needs, and social and cultural context.
