Early Learning Foundations Preschool (ELF), a top early childhood education center in Chicago for over 20 years, has announced it is accepting applications for the upcoming 2016-2017 school year. The organization also says it’s time to start planning ahead, as the end of the school year is fast approaching. In preparation, interested prospects can also set up appointments to tour the preschool.
“The school year will soon end and summer will be upon us,” says Manira Weathers, director of ELF Preschool. “It’s important not to miss out on unique opportunities for one’s child; parents should consider seeing our school and what it has to offer, and submit their applications as soon as possible.”
Serving children ages 2-6, the school operates for a full day, with full-day, half-day, and after-school programs available. School days run from 7:00 AM to 6:00 PM. The current school year is quickly winding down, so ELF is urging people to start preparing so they can take advantages of the services offered. From playtime to indoor and outdoor activities, to nutritious, hot meals, it is an ideal environment for young children.
The curriculum includes arts, story time, computer skills, and music and drama. Students also engage in dance and creative movement and brush up on their Spanish language skills. Various activities extend beyond the school building. Kids are taken on trips to Lincoln Park Zoo, the beach and park on Lake Michigan, and also to the Chicago Academy of Science. Field trips via school bus are provided as well.
Being that enrollment can be so competitive, and applications are being accepted, parents are being urged to begin their planning. It’s never too early to visit the school and take a look around, and submit applications early.
