Early Childhood Education


Looking for something to do with you child?  For a class environment to start you child on the road to independence?  We offer something for everyday of the week that will fit into your schedule!  To see what is offered click on the links below that are listed by session.

Lake Forest Parks and Recreation Department Early Childhood Education program provides positive recreational opportunities for children, infant through 2 1/2 years with a parent, and for 2 1/2 through 8 year olds in drop-off classes where the parent does not stay with the child in the program.

Programs are designed with the needs of the specific age group in mind. Programs focus on being a fun and safe place to meet, make new friends and learn new skills. While being exposed to new activities, participants will continue to develop their socialization as well as fine, gross motor and cognitive skills. Equipment and supplies will be safe and interesting for the children to use and explore. Programs will be offered and changed seasonally to make the best use of our natural surroundings.
