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 Kindergarteners and our Creative Kids Preschool (4y-5y). The Before/After School Care program is offered to our Creative Kids Preschoolers (4y-5y), D23 Kindergarteners, and D23 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 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.  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.
