Interested families are encouraged to request screening for their age-eligible students so their children can be considered for participation in tuition-based Blended Early Childhood Preschool when enrollment capacity allows.

Families also are encouraged to request a screening if they have any developmental concerns for their preschool-aged child. Please contact Willow Grove Administrative Assistant Melissa Lundeen with questions, 847.541.3660.

BLENDED EARLY CHILDHOOD PROGRAM

District 96 offers a tuition-based pre-kindergarten program: the Willow Grove Blended Program.

The Willow Grove Blended Program includes typically developing students as well as special education students.
