Focus on preschool

District 7 has been selected to participate in Illinois Preschool, an initiative funded through Governor George Ryan’s office to provide the opportunity and funds to develop and implement a plan to provide all 3- and 4-year-old children with access to high quality preschool education. The five critical elements of Illinois Preschool are professionals in the classroom, a well-designed curriculum, responsive to family needs, strong family involvement, and a two-year program serving 3- and 4-year-olds.
