BARLINA HOUSE PRESCHOOL

Our Philosophy

Our philosophy is to provide children opportunities to participate in activities that will develop them socially, emotionally and intellectually into self-assured children. Barlina House Preschool is a Crystal Lake Park District program and is licensed by the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services.

Our instructors are Early Childhood Educators, AED/CPR and First Aid Certified.

Our Curriculum

Our curriculum is in line with Illinois Early Learning Standards. Through play and a semi-structured schedule, the children will have opportunities to engage in language, literacy, math and science activities along with art, music and dramatic play for self-expression.
