Deerfield Park District Preschool is a not-for-profit early childhood program licensed by the State of Illinois. Our classrooms are specially designed to meet the needs of young children and are located in a secured area on the second level of the Jewett Park Community Center in the heart of Deerfield, Illinois. We offer part-time enrollment for children 2 ½ years through 5 years of age.

Our Philosophy

Deerfield Park District Preschool is a developmental program designed so that children learn to play and play to learn. We believe that through play and problem solving, children learn the basic skills necessary to achieve – socially, emotionally, intellectually, physically, and creatively. Our programs are planned to reflect the changing developmental needs of children in each age group through individual and group activities. Our goal is to provide a warm, nurturing,  quality preschool environment, recognizing that each child has her/his own unique style of growth and learning. We believe parents and teachers are partners in children’s care and education helping children grow in confidence and self-esteem.

safety protocol

The Deerfield Park District Preschool will be following COVID-19 guidance and directives set by the Department of Children and Family Service (DCFS), Centers for Disease Control (CDC), and the Illinois Department of Human Health (IDPH) for preschool. The number one priority is, and always has been, upholding our commitment to maintaining a safe and healthy environment for children. View the full Enhanced Risk Management Plan.


Young children construct their understanding of the world through active exploration. Our well-rounded curriculum includes opportunities in math, science and nature, literacy, language and listening, dramatic play, and daily outdoor play. Our teachers strive to create the best possible learning environment for each child. Art and music teachers enhance the daily program.
