The Niles Park District operates Bright Beginnings Preschool, and has locations at several of its facilities,…More including Grennan Heights Park, Oakton Manor Park and the Howard Leisure Center.
The District describes the preschool as follows:
Niles Park District Bright Beginnings Preschool is guided by the philosophy of “learning through play”. Guided or self-initiated, we believe play is an essential component in developing the whole child.
Under the guidance of our qualified teachers, children will learn to follow directions, share with others, and adapt to a group setting. The school-year curriculum will introduce children to a broad variety of experiences in a safe and stimulating environment. Activities in art, music, movement, games, storytelling and dramatic play will help nurture the development of self-control, physical coordination and social & cognitive skills.
By implementing our philosophy, we hope to provide each child with an enjoyable, stimulating and productive preschool experience, thereby easing the transition into kindergarten.
