CPC Preschool

What are we about?

We believe it’s vitally important to develop your child’s curiosity, confidence, independence, and resourcefulness. These are the foundations for future learning, so they’re our main areas of concentration. Your child will learn to be a member of a group away from home, respect other people and property, and adapt to routines and directions, while learning to express emotions in an acceptable manner.

Tours are always available by appointment.  To schedule a tour or for any questions, please email Kristin Duy, CPC Preschool Director, or call 630-323-6522. 

What do we foster in our students?

Our curriculum provides opportunities for your child to participate in meaningful, hands-on, interactive experiences through interaction with objects, teachers, and other children. They’ll be involved in teacher-planned activities as well as child-directed activities, where they’ll engage in both individual and small group participation. Our curriculum activities directly correlate to the Illinois Early Learning Standards from the Illinois State Board of Education. and we are NAEYC accredited.
