Our teachers

Our school year calendar 2017-2018

our philosophy

A play-based curriculum is at the core of our program. The staff incorporates both NAEYC guidelines and "Creative Curriculum" in developing a variety of learning experiences appropriate to the ages of our students. As a part of Flossmoor Community Church, the Weekday Preschool models and encourages Christian values and behaviors, but there is no specific Christian education component in the curriculum. Children of all faiths are welcome.

The Weekday Preschool classroom teachers are experienced educators with associates to masters level degrees in early childhood education.  All of our staff members have a deep belief in the value of a play-based preschool experience for your child. Our goal is to prepare each student for the elementary school experience by encouraging creative approaches to problem solving and the development of age-appropriate social skills​​.
