We are excited to announce that in 2017 we added a classroom exclusively for part day preschoolers! AM class runs from 8:15 to 11:15 and PM class runs from 12:15 to 3:15 and loosely follows D97 calendar. This preschool program is open to children between the ages of 3 - 5 years old as of October 1, 2021.  We currently have spots available for the remainder of the 2020-21 school year.  Please contact if interested.

Our part day preschool follows the same emergent curriculum as the rest of the school.  We begin by introducing themes and allowing the interests/inquiries of the children to guide the rest of our planning. We are a play-based school and plan a variety of activities and staged play for our students to explore with a balance of language, sensory, fine and gross motor, art, math, music, science, cognitive, and social-emotional concepts. 

Our program is flexible, and you may choose your child's schedule (days you would like your child to attend). We follow the district 97 calendar and are closed the same days the district is closed. 

Registration is on a first-come, first-serve basis. Joining our part day preschool program is a great way to become part of the Oak Park Friends community.  Once you are a current family, you can join the priority waitlist as a current family.
