Our Preschool Philosophy & Curriculum

Sunbeams & Rainbows preschool provides a safe and nurturing learning environment that embraces all children and their diverse learning styles, needs and interests. Our instructors offer unique learning experiences that are play-based, developmentally appropriate, and respectful of social, cultural, and linguistic diversity. We prepare preschoolers for elementary school and beyond by incorporating activities that promote social-emotional, physical, language and cognitive development.

Our curriculum is guided by The Creative Curriculum for Preschool by Teaching Strategies, the Illinois Early Learning Guidelines for Children Birth to Age 3, and by the Illinois Early Learning and Development Standards with special attention to literacy, mathematics, science & technology, social studies, the arts and English language acquisition.
