Learning through play and experience to provide a positive learning environment and create a life long love of learning.

Quality of Teaching

Individualized Teaching: From the Director

Our 4 year old instructor taught kindergarten for 9 years and really knows how to best prepare children for their kindergarten experience.
Our 3 year old instructor has an early childhood education degree and is able to introduce the school setting and get the children at ease to create positive reinforcement that learning is fun!

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Mundelein Cooperative Preschool, we believe in developing the whole child through experiences that foster communication and socialization skills; problem solving and decision-making; reading, writing and math readiness skills; and large and small muscle coordination skills.

Our developmentally appropriate program uses a theme-based curriculum that encourages learning through active exploration. We've created a natural learning atmosphere through the use of learning centers. Through our program, we expose children to a variety of experiences to make learning fun and successful.
