Early Childhood

Programs for ages 18 mos–5

Because Play is Important Work!

In the first five years, your child will develop at a faster pace than at any other time of life. This will enable them to become intellectually curious and creative thinkers. Mundelein Park & Recreation District Early Childhood Programs are designed to enhance your child’s social, emotional, and physical development in a positive, nurturing environment. Our experienced teachers will guide children through activities that integrate socialization and play; movement and exercise; music; art; and listening and following directions.

We have classes for every phase of your child’s early development. In classes for younger children, a parent/caregiver and child will participate and enjoy quality time together. As your child gets older he or she will learn independence when a parent/caregiver is not present. Programs at Mundelein Park & Recreation district help prepare your child with a solid foundation for school success. Our goal is to help your child become a life-long learner.

We offer cultural arts programs for early childhood in arts and crafts, cooking and baking, dance, Spanish, and science. We offer programs that introduce your child to sports such as soccer, t-ball, football, gymnastics, karate, basketball, tennis, and more.
