Queen of the Rosary school offers a 3 and 4 year old preschool program with a variety of schedule options.  Students have the option of attending full day, half day,  five days a week or three days a week.  Preschoolers are also able to sign up for extended care.

Our program follows Illinois State Board of Education Early Learning Standards.  Teachers are state certified and highly qualified, with a minimum of a Bachelors degree in education.  Assistant teachers are provided and enrollment is limited to meet adult/child ratio and group size requirements.  Queen of the Rosary follows a comprehensive Pre-K curriculum, which includes Early Literacy Skills, Language Arts, Mathematics, Religion, Science, Social Studies, Health, Physical Education and Music.

When a child enters preschool at QR, they become part of an established setting for learning.  Our preschool classrooms are not just add-ons or separate programs.  They are an integral part of the elementary school community and considered an important part of the learning continuum.  Our teachers provide safe and secure early childhood education in a loving, faith-based environment.
