Here at the Deerfield Park District, we have developed programs that are tailored for young children who are just beginning their interactions with the outside world. As children learn to play and interact with other children, they learn important social skills and have a head start on their school years ahead.

Creative Arts & Cooking classes
Skills, Hobbies, & Variety classes

Performing Arts, Dance, & Music classes

Sports & Athletics classes

In addition to seasonal programs, the Deerfield Park District Preschool operates inside Jewett Park Community Center. Our dedicated, experienced teachers are professional educators, committed to helping children develop to their fullest potential. Check the Preschool section of the website for further details.

Important Information

How can you help make your child’s playtime at the park district even better?

  • Leave older siblings at home so you can enjoy special time together
  • Make sure your child is the correct age by the first day of class.
  • Be on time to pick up your child so he/she doesn’t worry.
  • Keep your child at home if they are sick.

Age requirements

Children must be the correct age by the first day of class.

About food allergies

Many of our preschool – as well as cooking and other – classes will serve food; therefore, it is imperative that you notify the full time Recreation Supervisor of any food allergies or dietary restrictions your child may have.

About medication

If your child may need to use medication (inhalers, epi-pen, etc.) during class time, a medication administration form must be completed, including physician’s signature. Forms are available at the Registration Office.

Illness and Infectious Diseases

Please do not attend class nor send children who are ill to class. To prevent the spread of communicable diseases, such as strep, pink eye and fifth’s disease, parents should report any diagnosed cases to the park district office. If exposure to other participants occurred, a notification will be sent home.
