GSL School Readiness Preschool
Preschool serves as an introduction to the school experience. By exposing students to a comfortable and inspiring classroom environment, students are eager to continue to learn and grow in kindergarten and beyond. Glencoe-Silver Lake School District provides high-quality preschool programming though the School Readiness Preschool program.
GSL School Readiness (SR) Preschool offers 2-day (Cubs) and 3-day (Pre-K Panthers) per week sessions. Morning classes run from 8:30-11:00 a.m. Afternoon classes run from 12:00-2:30 p.m.
Cubs (3 years by Sept. 1)
This class emphasizes the development of social skills and emotional growth through interaction with classmates and teachers. Through independent exploration, structured activities, and hands-on learning, children develop a variety of skills and knowledge in areas like early literacy, mathematics, science, and social skills. We also focus on the development of fine motor and listening skills through various play-based activities.
Pre-K Panthers (4 years by Sept. 1)
8:30-11:00 a.m. OR 12:00-2:30 p.m.
This class helps establish a positive attitude and comfort level in a school setting while creating excitement toward exploring and learning. We provide hands-on opportunities for creative expression through art, games, stories, cooking, science experiments, and music. We promote initial academic development and socialization skills through pre-reading, math, literature, writing, and science.
