KinderStop & Before/After School Care

The KinderStop and Before/After School Care program is operated by the Prospect Heights Park District, cooperatively with School District 23. The KinderStop program is offered to our Creative Kids Preschool 4 year old classes (only), D23 Pre-K (4 year old only), and Kindergarteners.  The Before/After School Care program is offered to our Creative Kids 4 year old preschooler classes, D23 Pre-K (4 year old only), Kindergarteners, and 1st graders.  This is a great opportunity for your child to extend their day, in a small, friendly environment.

Participants enjoy indoor and outdoor free play, planned crafts, games, and individual and group activities. School District 23 will provide school bus transportation to and from school for Pre-K-1st graders. Our Creative Kids Preschool students will be escorted from their preschool room to the KinderStop room by their preschool teacher.  KinderStop and Before/After School Care is offered on the days that the School District 23 is in session. 

D23 Pre-K-1st Graders, please notify D23 that you are enrolled in our program for transportation purposes.  All other schools are welcome, but transportation is not provided.
