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 to participate and enjoy quality time together.
