Niles Park District Bright Beginnings Preschool is certified by the Illinois Department of Children & Family Services (DCFS).

Our preschool philosophy is “learning through play”. Guided or self-initiated, we believe play is an essential component in developing the whole child.  We strive to provide an experience that is safe and nurturing while promoting the physical, social, emotional and cognitive development of the young child.  Our "learning through play and playing to learn" philosophy gives children the opportunity to explore, discover, problem solve and build self-esteem.

Bright Beginnings Preschool curriculum follows weekly themes.  The themes incorporate activities that are developmentally appropriate for all areas of a child's development; physical, emotional, social and cognitive.  Teachers provide age appropriate activities using materials to reinforce the theme.


Preschool Staff
Bright Beginnings Preschool staff is an integral part of the classroom.  Each class has a lead teacher and assistant.  Staff maintain 15 hours of in-service in ECE yearly, and are certified in CPR, AED and First Aid.  All staff meets the requirements issued by DCFS to teach at Bright Beginnings Preschool.
