2018 Southwest Suburban Preschool and Daycare Guide

With so many choices available in the southwest suburbs, finding the right preschool or daycare for your family can overwhelming. Parents often put extra pressure on ourselves to find the ideal environments for our children. While we can’t pick the perfect preschool (or daycare) for you, we’re giving you a head start by breaking down your options into three categories: Preschool, Daycare, and Preschool with Extended Care (childcare outside the hours of 9  am – 3 pm). We recommend looking into a few that interest you and scheduling a tour with a staff member to find the best fit for your family.
