Parents and their children are invited to ask questions, meet staff and explore classrooms before registration for the 2013-14 school year.
As a joint program of the Geneva Park and School Districts, Friendship Station Preschool is follows the philosophy of learning through guided play. Play allows children to share, create, cooperate, interact and solve problems. In keeping with School District 304 guidelines for early learning and literacy, this program provides appropriate activities to enhance literary enrichment of young children. Experiences in art, singing, games, storytelling, cooking, rhythm and movement foster self-control, physical coordination, social skills and a positive self-image in each student.

AM programs meet from 9 to 11:30 a.m., and p.m. programs meet 12:30 to 3 p.m. Children must be 3 years old on or before Sept. 1, 2013, to enroll in the 3-year-old program.
