Big Thinkers Program (Must be Potty-Trained):

We have one small mixed-aged preschool class designated for children ages 3-5 for peer learning and teaching and a loving teacher's guidance. Students attend from 8:30 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. Monday through Friday in an engaging, developmentally appropriate way for young children. We have free choice time, morning meeting, learning centers, fun fitness, music & movement, and/or brain breaks, mindfulness, a morning snack, small and large group work, and weekly specials that change daily. 

Due to the limited capacity of 8 children, we only offer five-day slots. Your child can attend for less than five days but must pay full tuition to secure their spot at the Play Lab. This ensures we can maintain our small class size, cover overhead expenses, and secure a highly qualified teacher and staff that will provide our students with high-quality early childhood education and care.


Does your child miss the CPS September 1st cut-off date for  Preschool or Kindergarten, but you would love for your child to be engaged and challenged in fun and developmentally appropriate way by an Award-Winning state-certified teacher specializing in Early Childhood Education (B-8 years old)? The Play Lab Preschool promotes learning through play and hands-on learning in a loving home-based preschool program. Our unique small mixed-aged class provides more personal attention for every child's diverse needs. We also utilize child-centered authentic assessments, developmental checklists, and Illinois Early Learning Standards to meet children where they are while preparing them with the 21st Century Learning Skills they'll need for future success!
