Since 1949, the First Congregational Church of Western Springs Preschool has successfully fostered a love of learning in young children.
Our curriculum is strongly based on active participation, and our mission is simple: to advance a young child’s independence and positive self-concept, setting the stage for a lifetime of successful learning.
At the First Congregational Church of Western Springs Preschool we believe:
~To develop academic confidence we must focus on the whole child: intellectually, socially, emotionally, physically and spiritually.
~Children at play are actively involved in creating themes, exploring and establishing environments, solving problems, and developing shared understandings.
~When engaged in play-based learning, young children see others’ points of view, learn to use language in new ways, learn to interact with others, and develop their muscles and coordination.
~Active involvement from parents is critical to the success of our program, and we encourage parents to partner with our teachers to facilitate the learning process.
