This Coming School Year, Open up a New World of Learning for Your 2-Year-Old! | Chicago North Shore Moms

ParkSchool is a fresh new concept in early childhood education that combines modern education methods with the expertise in recreation and access to the natural world that only the Park District of Highland Park can provide. Our educational staff and recreational professionals deliver a new level of learning, with the goal of preparing them for success in kindergarten. Listen to what some of our ParkSchool parents have to say…



A Day at ParkSchool

Youngsters are engaged in STREAM activities, which include science, technology, recreation, engineering, art, and math.
