Applications for tuition-based enrollment in District 58’s Grove Children’s Preschool program are now available at all District 58 schools and on the District 58 website.
Enrollment is open to all District 58 children who will be 3 years old on or before Sept. 1, 2014.
Applications for current/returning students will be accepted from February 17 to 21, applications for siblings/returning students will be accepted between February 24 to 28, and open applications will be accepted beginning March 3.

The goal of the Grove Children's Preschool program is to meet the developmental and individual needs of all children in a safe, inclusive and nurturing environment, while promoting educational success through engaging and collaborative learning experiences.
Grove Children's Preschool is a blended program, meaning that tuition students, students identified as having special education needs, and students identified as being at risk for future academic difficulties due to cultural or socio-economic factors are taught in the same classroom.
